  • Esse 125Se (guarantee is rubbish).

    Brian Needham 5 years ago

    Esse guarantee is not good, in fact the only thing guaranteed is the metal box, I asked for a new baffle that bent within six months, the reply was:- the guarantee does not cover Glass, rope... []

    Stove expert replied: This guarantee policy is standard for most if not all manufacturers who do not cover consumable parts. As your baffle plate warped in such a short time and you state you can't dampen your stove down it would appear that you have a flue draw problem as it seems to be over-drawing. This is an installation issue and not a stove issue and should be investigated in the near future as leaving may lead to further problems with metal distortion of the stove if left unchecked. First thing would be to get a flue draw test undertaken and check that it matches the manufacturers instructions.

  • Esse 125 SE Airwash Issue

    Jim Christian 7 years ago

    Key factors in my decision to recently purchase this particular stove were the large glass front and claims that the 'airwash' system would keep the glass clear. I've been disappointed to find... []

    Stove expert replied: The SE models have less air intake movement control as the flue gases need to be permanently diluted to conform to the smoke controlled area regulations. It is a shame that you have this problem with deposits on the glass, if the air control is fully open this should be kept to a minimum.
