shut right down thus making water cylinder over heat have you any suggestions by the way it is plumbed in to a thermal store tank with full central heating with a heat leak radiator in case of over heating

Stove expert replied: This has a high output of 16kW's to water and 8kW's to the room. Would recommend that the installation is checked and the fuel used is of good quaity. The heat generated has to be going somewhere providing there is enough fuel in the firrebox so further investigation should be undertaken.

water temp of 60c. Testing at boiler input and output pipes, when the input is about 35c the output can be 52c, then when the accumulator is returning 52c to the boiler input the max output is only 60c. And nothing will get it to output hotter than 60c, which for radiators is useless. Cold water in the rads mixes with the flow from the accumulators bringing the temp down to 50s and quickly to 40s. A boiler stove should output 80c and this one doesn't.
domestic hot water and 15 radiators, two small complaints I feel air intake for the air wash is to small and door glass soots up slightly arada could rectify by making slots bigger, other point curved door has two ledges that collect debris apart from these two things an excellent purchase.
is very good to use.
Stove expert replied: Have you any control on the water that prevents the radiator circuit from coming on until the hot water cylinder is up to 40 degrees as this should help. Speak to your installer regarding this as initial priority of heat should be to the hot water cylinder.
experimenting with several types of solid fuel, opted for 'Newflame' nuggets which although a bit more expensive than other solid fuels seems to us to be better value for money - the stove burns this fuel to a fine ash. This stove has turned out to be a first class 'burning machine'. It provides lashings of hot water and heats up to six radiators without any difficulty. The air- wash vent is conveniently placed and is easily controlled and keeps the glass in the door reasonably clear. We have found it necessary to fit a thermostatic safety device to our hot water cylinder which turns on the radiators automatically if the hot water in the cylinder gets too hot and overflows from the overflow pipe. The metal door handle does get very hot; perhaps it should have been made of wood or a similar material which does not conduct heat so readily.
not to have to empty all the time. The airwash system works really well when the fire is burning at a very high temperature. The size of the fire is a major plus as we can easily fit 17" logs on to burn. Overnight if we stock up the boiler it lasts about 4 to 5 hrs, then if there is just a tiny bit still burning we just open it up and away it goes. In the winter the fire hardly went out. The boiler easily heats our 3 bedroom house and gives us hot water. The major positive is that I have had no heating bills in just under a year ( I get free timber ).Negative point. We have just two, the first being the handle does get really hot so a fire glove is needed most of the time and the second is that the thermostat is very awkward to access and clean out. But overall the boiler has been a great success.
Stove expert replied: Ash should be removed on a daily basis and should not be left to build up in the ashpan. Do insure that the wood is dry and seasoned with a moisture content of less than 20%. A stove should be let out on a monthly basis to check that the air ways are clear (drop the baffle down and remove debris off of the top), this is good practise and will allow for maximum efficiency.
