I am baffled. I had Firefox 12 installed a few days ago and I have lit it twice. It is freezing. I am so disappointed. I have to stand by it to feel the heat. I burn briquettes and wood. I had... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Would suggest going back to installer as this needs further investigation. With a liner installed the flue draw should be adequate for the stove, is there an airbrick in the room? What sort of cowl is on the flue as an anti down draft one may be required to prevent smoke coming back down the chimney. The chimney / flue system may need to be made taller if there are other flues / chimneys in the property. Was the liner insulated? Have you tried smokeless fuel to see if this works better? Do not give up before all avenues have explored.

I took out a Firefox 8 to fit this stove as I was very impressed with that, but the 12 is even better. The double doors make loading logs easy and the size of the fire box is huge so make sure... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: The problem of the stove going out if a good fire is not in the firebox before shutting down may also be caused by the cold flue, once warmed the draw is more effective and the stove burns well and is controllable. Otherwise a very happy customer who has experience of the Firefox range.

Very Happy with this stove burning both wood and coal generating plenty of heat for my large lounge and adjoining kitchen. When fully loaded feels more like a furnace and coal allows it to stay... [ read more ]

The only issues I have are, if its loaded up (wood and coal) and the dampers are closed down, within 2 hours there is very little fuel left and needs topping up. This may be normal but I have... [ read more ]
We are stumped as to how to do this. The small tool doesn't seem to fit anywhere & there doesn't seem to be moving parts?
Stove expert replied: To operate: Offer the operating tool to the riddling bar (right hand side panel near base) and using slow positive movement riddle the grate back and forth. The reciprocating movement will clear the grate. The grate can jam occasionally with clinker or more often with nails and screws from used timber. Use shorter, faster movement of the tool to dis- lodge. If jamming persists then the obstruction must be removed when the stove is cold. If the grate is kept clear and maintained it will last longer.
Bought this stove a month ago as we needed a larger output and the prices for many of the 12Kw plus stoves were ridiculous! Saw this and read great reviews so thought we would give it a go.... [ read more ]
The Fire fox 12 is a heavy unit so I thought it would be a better controlled unit than it is. The door did not seal very well so I replaced the rope for a better quality one and the lock is... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: You are asking a great deal from this stove to heat the three areas specified you need 22kW's of heat, this stove produces a maximum of 13kW's! Be careful not to overfire the unit.
we have just had the fire fox 12 installed and my only concern is how do we clean the flue pipe /clean the chimney ,
Stove expert replied: Firefox stoves have a removeable baffle / throat plate in the top of the inside of the firebox, remove this and access to the chimney can be achieved for sweeping purposes. It is good practise to have an alternative access point, say in the rigid flue pipe, as a back up.
It's a great looking stove real hot my only problem is it burns to fast even with both air streams shut its rages I think to fast is there any way to temper it?
Stove expert replied: Get the flue checked as you may require a damper to give you more control of the stove.
