  • Noisey

    Tiffany Haynes one year ago

    Frustratingly noisey I know it is called clock but it ticks and clunks to the point that you have to turn the tv up. I think it is the plates and screws at the back expanding and contracting
    - would not buy again.I also agree with the other review that it puts smoke out in to the room everytime it is opened.

  • Amazing stoves

    Kevin Riley 10 months ago

    We've had our clock stove for a year now and it's been a fantastic stove, it heats the whole house too. You get some really impressive heat output from it, I'm down to shorts in winter when
    it's on, I only burn seasoned or kiln dried hardwood on it as I get better performance from it like that, reading the other reviews though I've never had smoke come into our room from it unless I've done something wrong, super impressed with the stove and I would definitely buy one again. Keep up the great work clock thank you.

  • Smoky stove

    Michal Sur one year ago

    We have had the stove for three months now and find it frustratingly smoky. It was installed by a professional stove dealer/installer company. They installed a chimney liner with it. The chimney
    is about 5m tall. It is a detached cottage without any objects-trees blocking the air movement. Chimney flue goes straight up without any bends. We have tried everything possible to figure out the cause of the smoke coming into the room. It happens not only when we start the fire but also if the fire has been going for few hours (so cold flu and downdraft can not be the reason). Every time the door is opened (slowly and let it slightly open for 20 seconds before opening it fully) smoke and sparks come into the room. If the fire is burning strong it is not only smoke but also flames! I tried playing with the controls, having them closed or open during reloading the stove, trying it on windy or still days, trying it on days with various wind directions and strength but nothing helps. I also tried opening windows on the room prior reloading the stove to see if lack of draft is an issue but it made no difference. The only thing I can think of is that the baffle is too restrictive. The stove is designed so that smoke is directed towards the door/glass before being sucked into chimney. This means when the door is opened the smoke/heat goes for the bigger opening and we end up with smoke and flames going into the room. It is a nice stove but just does not work for us. Every time we reload it we have to open window for 5 minutes to get rid of the smoke from the room. Very frustrating and annoying.

    Stove expert replied: It appears that you have tried various ways to overcome this problem. It may be that a chimney fan would be the answer to aid the lift of flue gases when the pressure changes with the door opening. There is a fan on the market that has a money back guarantee so you would have nothing to loose by going down this route and perhaps a lot to gain.

  • Great Stove

    We replaced our old stove with the Clock Blithfield. The design and build quality is first class. The burn rate is very controllable and the air wash works fine.
