. Burns well, however noticed recently seal rope has lost its flexibility and the door has warped sligthly leaving a couple of mm more of a gap at the top right hand side. Anybody having issues with controlling the rate of combustion check this gap ! It should have a tight seal against the fire rope all the way round. Had to strip door of glass etc and straighten on a bench ! All ok now
Stove expert replied: Rope seals need to be checked regularly as do glass gaskets, they should be replaced when the rope looses its pliability. To check a door is sealing well, shut a piece of paper between the body of the stove and the door (when cold) and if the paper can be pulled out easily the rope needs replacing or the door needs adjusting. The damage to the door may have been caused through the ill fitting rope seal, worth checking annually if not more often.

, in fact, still unfinished. Value for money is difficult to score, but whilst the finish is poor and hardly worthy of the name, the fire is robust and a very useable product which is easy on the eye. Not too many "smaller" stoves available so its a shame that Firebelly compromise their product with this external finish.

Stove expert replied: What a shame as these stoves have given good performance for other customers. The controllability may be an installation issue not a problem with the stove and should be investigated further before a replacement is purchased.
bedded in but since then there have been no problems with smoke in the room. It burns nearly anything (soft/hard wood, pallets etc) and is easy to light once you get the knack. Heat output is great, when it gets going we generally run it at half vent and it heats the entire downstairs of our open plan terrace house (that has no wall insulation) to the point where we open the doors to upstairs and warm that a bit too.The build quality is fantastic, the magic cool touch handle is great. We are still on our original rope (it is regularly serviced but if not broke don't fix) but as mentioned in other reviews you have to be a bit careful with the finish as it does mark easily (Hoover nozzle etc), this can be easily touched up though, in fact it is included in our annual service.I've tried to think of bad points but honestly can't (maybe a cool touch vent control handle built in would be good?).My wife and I love this stove and will be going back to buy a new one for our new house this year.
Stove expert replied: The rope should be changed when it is not sealing the door adequately, try shutting a piece of A4 paper between the door and the stove body, if you can pull the paper out check adjustment on the door and replace the rope. An alternative test is press the rope and there should be some spring in it, if hard it should be changed.
answered. Very polite customer service first class I cannot say enough..very happy
Stove expert replied: Great review.
The control ability and handle operation for the following reasons. Control ability: the top air intake is rather stiff and sometimes sticks half closed but with a bit of encouragement it moves. Once both the top and bottom are closed then it ticks away very nicely (always close the bottom intake first!). Handle operation: this can be a little stiff but on the upside here you know that the door is sealed well when the door does close. Finally airwash: when closed down the glass does smoke up a little but when opened up again it soon clears, and we have known ours to remain warm overnight with just the minimum of logs lit initially.Overall very pleased with it.
Stove expert replied: A few niggles but nothing major to cause disappointment as the heat makes up for them!
a great view of the fire. However, the top and bottom vents have a very limited effect upon airflow, consequently we tend to limit the heat output by controlling the amount of logs we put on it - not entirely satisfactory. All that said, because we only use it as a visual adjunct to heating, I can't say that I would never buy one again because I do really like the look of them.
Stove expert replied: Check the fuel to insure that it is good quality to help with overall performance.
the room we wanted to put the stove in here. We have no chimney so the install was a worrying thought initially but we are more than happy with the outcome. We would recommend a Firebelly to any of our friends as they have advised us on everything we needed and their installers were very professional.The airwash works brilliantly and the flames look fab for a small stove.
