  • montrose mk1 65 years old

    MICK WHITE 6 years ago

    I have a old montrose mk1 stove its about 65 years old. 15 years ago I cut & put in new fire bricks & a 1 piece glass to replace the 6 thin strips : This stove must be the best ever made, all
    solid cast iron. It is multifuel and still gets very hot and is still in the following morning. It is always lit 7 days & 16 hrs plus per day : I have just drilled a small 4mm hole in the top of the door to create an air wash & it works perfectly and now have clean glass for the first time in years: the handle gets too hot so I fitted a 50mm long spring and I can now hold it anytime as it stays cool :

    Stove expert replied: Great review for this old stove and still going strong, amazing.

  • Smoke

    7 years ago

    We have had this stove for around 16 years, the heat is great and was very happy with it, however I am now unable to light it as whenever I do the smoke fills the room. I have tried different
    fuels, smokeless etc, but it still happens. It is situated in an open chimney which I have had swept, very thoroughly, he took out all the components and cleaned inside the stove, but it hasn''t improved. When it worked it was great, can anyone enlighten me?

    Stove expert replied: As this is a recent change please check that the internal parts are back in correctly and nothing is wrong with them (distorted baffle perhaps!). If nothing obvious here, check that no trees have grown that could be changing the way the smoke leaves the flue system (altering the wind direction), Have you added double glazing or cavity wall insulation to the property that could be affecting the free air that is in the room where the stove is sited, if so you may need an air vent to correct this..
