Chimney cleaned regularly, burn best quality smokeless coal and yet everyday we can get a layer of a very fine film of soot. I have replaced the rope on the door but still think it''s coming... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Smokeless fuel can and often will leave particulates on surfaces due to its makeup, it mainly occurs when loading and re-loading and when riddling to de-ash the stove. Different fuels will have more or less ash so it is worth trialling a few brands to see which you find is best in your situation. It is also best to de-ash with the door closed and then leave for say 5 mins for the ash to settle before removing the ashpan. Do you use an ash caddy or remove by taking the ashpan through the house to dispose of the ash as this can lead to fine particles becoming airborne? This is not caused by the stove but by the fuel type being used.

Comments for the ESSE 301 which is similar to the 305. Easy to fit into a small traditional fire-place without really needing to add a chimney liner. Just make sure that the hearth gives the... [ read more ]

I have made a mistake going for the Esse SE350 I was told this model was a 7kw convection stove. Only if you burn solid fuel, 5kw if you burn logs. The complete firebox is not guaranteed, only... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Glass and consumable items are not covered my manufacturers, the glass bloom (if a milky appearance) is likely to be caused by overdrawing of the stove and is not a manufacturing defect (it may be an installation problem or operator error). It would not happen on one firing but over a period of time and means that usage is exposing the stove to higher than normal working temperatures. This should be investigated fully as further damage may occur. You should be able to have the stove slumbering with a gentle flame, with short periods of fast burn and not a raging fire all the time.

I am considering one of these to replace an inset gas fire (Magiglo). Couple of things, it's a large room, 10m x 4m approx, is the 7 KW Esse 350SE a good option. Also, we wanted to get one of those Eco fans to circulate the heat, is there a lip at the top on the inset that one could sit on? Thanks... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: The stove fan needs to sit flat on top of the stove so I do not think a fan would be suitable for this model.
We now use a 50/50 mix of small anthracite and homefuel nuts, which give a perfect balance of heat and ease of lighting. We also burn some logs and wood that we get free. The coal costs around... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: A stove running 24/7 should have at least two short periods of fast burn (15 - 20mins) twice a day to burn off any deposits produced in the slow burning periods. A stove should be let out once a month to check that the airways are clear. A Carbon Monoxide Alarm is a requirement for any stove installation and should be retrofitted if there is not one currently installed. Great review and good savings being made.
Great stove for heating water and way better than an open fire with a back boiler, with the right smokeless fuel it keeps the glass clean all night long, would recommend this stove to everyone... [ read more ]

Stove expert replied: Warranty on stoves does not cover glass however, normally after such a short period of time a replacement would be supplied either by the manufacturer or by the supplier perhaps at a reduced rate as a gesture of goodwill. Regarding the problems you are experiencing when lighting on a still day may be due to the flue which should be investigated further as there are ways to improve the draw. Room ventilators are a good option for providing the extra air required for a stove, have you got this or just a vent direct through the wall?
We had an open fire and were fed up with all the heat going straight up the chimney. We almost went for for 301 but after seeing the size of the firebox we went for the 350 SE. It was a bit... [ read more ]
