Review of Dru 44 stove


Dermot Dermo99@gmail.com 3 years ago

The riddle on my stove seemed to "lock up" and is not really working any more - anyone else have similar issue?

The glass pane also cracked and replaced after a couple years. I have another larger stove that is several years older and never had the same issue so was surprised.

However a great stove overall and perfect size for room it sits in.

Stove expert replied: Once the stove is cleaned out you may find that some small fragments of unburnt fuel have got stuck in the grate system and thus is preventing it from working. Different fuels burn producing varying degrees of deposits and clinkers can lodge in the working parts of the grate system, perhaps an alternative smokeless fuel would give better results if this is found to be the cause.
