Review of Coalbrookdale Severn stove

Coal Brookdale Severn with boiler

Leon Witts one year ago

I have owned this stove from new and it has been very good , a couple of weeks ago I came home from work to find a wet carpet on examination I found the boiler has rotted through from the fire box and leaked in my front room. I have now been searching for a new boiler I have stripped the stove and was disappointed to find it manufactured from steel. I''m sure stainless steel would be a much better option. Can anybody recommend somewhere to try for a new boiler was thinking possibly aga/Rayburn ???

Stove expert replied: If a replacement boiler is not available through Aga you may be able to get one fabricated using the existing one as a template. Add in boilers can be made from steel or stainless steel which is not uncommon. You did nto say how old the stove is but they generally last many years.
