  • Why Is my Dru 44 burning so fast lately?

    Sina Collier 3 months ago

    Hi all, can anyone help me with the above. My stove has been burning really quickly lately. I thought it was just the rope seal needed replacing but I''ve done that and it hasnt made any difference... []

    Stove expert replied: If a stove starts to burn more quickly than usual the first thing to check is that all the seals (door and glass) are in tact. Replace if they appear worn or have become rigid. Check that the new door seal is sealing well but closing a piece of paper between the body of the stove and the door, if you can pull this out look at adjusting the door. Next is to check that the internal components are in their correct position. If neither of these seem to be an issue, is there anything different with the flue system, weather pattern (wind coming from a different direct than normal etc.

  • Riddle

    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.

  • Unhappy with handle

    5 years ago

    I was somewhat surprised at the installation to be handed the handle and told that this had to be put in and out when the door was to be opened and closed. I thought the guys were having a... []

    Stove expert replied: The Dru 44 has a removable stainless steel handle which can stop the door from being opened accidentally and is seen a a good safety aspect on this model. It is best left by the side of the stove until required and will then not fall out accidentally and cause damage to the hearth.

  • matching flue a problem

    David Blackbourn 6 years ago

    All I wanted, after buying an ivory stove, was a matching flue. Not a chance. Now selling on ebay and buying carron.

    Stove expert replied: Flue pipe can be purchased in a range of colours but is not guaranteed to match unless you get the RAL number used on the stove. Might be worth exploring further before selling this model.

  • DRU 44 stove is ideal

    Tony 8 years ago

    Ive had this stove for 2 years with the short legs and felt like I should write a review if anyone is interested in buying this model. I live in an old granite house in Aberdeen with high ceilings... []

    Stove expert replied: Household coal is not recommended in a closed appliance due to the dirty nature of the fuel and the fact that it burns with a longer flame than smokeless fuels. This can lead to failure of the baffle plate!
