  • Extremely disappointing product & service

    We bought a double sided FB1 6kW stove for space heating our dining & living rooms in 2012. We thought the design was contemporary & we liked the single large fire windows. I wish we hadn't... []

    Stove expert replied: What a shame that you have had a bad experience with this stove. It is unfortunate that you were delivered the incorrect stove followed by damaged products which didn't get you off to a good start with this brand. You do not make it clear who purchased the stove, if it was the installer then he should be the person to sort out the problems caused by the delivery of a damaged products and any warranty issues that make require attention. Your contract is with whoever you have paid your money to and not direct with the manufacturer under normal circumstances. The installer is also responsible to check that the flue draw is with in the tolerances recommended by the manufacturer, if these checks were not undertaken again you can't blame the manufacturer or the stove. It appears that you have been let down by the installer from your comments which is a great pity, as these stoves do perform well when installed correctly using the seasoned wood recommended.

  • poor quality fire brick

    Stove expert replied: Liners are not covered by a warranty in any stove, if they crack they can be used providing they are staying in place and protecting the metal of the stove. Fire cement can be used to patch the two parts together if required.

  • Dissapointing

    John Smith 2 months ago

    I ended up with the FireBelly 1 from reading some of the reviews online and due to my size restrictions the FB fitted the gap really well, a lot of the other stoves were either too large or... []

    Stove expert replied: Firebricks are not covered by warranty with any manufacturer, however, it seems a shame that after such little use there was no offer of compromise (perhaps paying for replacements at cost would have helped a little!). Regarding the blackening of the glass, is there enough free air in the room? What is the flue draw measurement? What is the height of the flue? With the air controls open this should mean that the glass would stay clear, the flames should be busy and normally adjustment to regulate the rate of burn would then be made once an established fire has been achieved. Is this the sigle door version or does the stove have a door either side?

  • Wait and see

    MARTIN AYMES 5 years ago

    The stove is all as website indicated and the service when a basic but easily rectified fault was found in the control plates was OK although required a bit of pushing to get a speedy solution... []

    Stove expert replied: It is best to leave the door ajar so that a good air movement can be maintained during the summer months and should help to prevent a problem with the liners.
