Review of Coalbrookdale Severn stove
Coalbrookdale Severn multi-burner with boiler
This is the second Severn I have owned now in 15 years. At a cost of £600 for the first one it was a lovely centre-piece for the room. After approx ten years it developed a leak at the back on the 45% bend where the ash pans go under. The cost to replace the water jacket would have been £800 so we bought a new one at a cost of £1200. Having had this one now for about 7 years it also has just sprung a leak in the same place. Not priced up a replacement water jacket yet but I'm not a happy chappie with this high-end stove
Stove expert replied: As this is the second stove to leak in 15years I would advise having a thorough investigation into the installation and operating process of this unit as there may be something that is causing these premature leaks. (using wet fuel, no low limit stats, a direct cylinder, spring water, no short periods of fast burn or other causes that are attributing to this). Understandably disappointing.
