as installation last year. Because of the airwash system and not being able to close down the secondary air control combined with the efficiency of my chimney I am not able to easily control my fire. I have only used well seasoned wood so far and hope that burning solid fuel may be a solution.
Stove expert replied: You may also need to get a flue damper or stabilizer if the flue draw is excessive. This will give better control and prevent damage to the stove.
slowly dwindles. For my fire to run well the primary air has to be half open and the secondary lever has to be fully open. This maintains a flue temp of around 400c. Does the Clean Burn model have super heated air introduced at the top of the burning chamber and perhaps be more efficient for secondary combustion? If so does it make it worthwhile to replace my existing stove with the CB model?
Stove expert replied: The airwash model in the CB version will have been modified so that it is always partially open this allows for the flue gases to be diluted continuously.
good efficiency. The stove looks nice and modern, is easy to operate. I have followed the instructions which state that you shouldn't start the burner with a raging fire but light 5 smaller fires to prevent damage to the top plate. I also have a stove thermometer which is a MUST.I installed the burner to an 8inch clay flue so was worried I'd lose a lot of the heat but this has not been a problem. I easily get the burner burning nice and hot.For the money it really is a must.
ignited. Unlike the previous review I have top flues on both models. I wondered if the front bar is not correctly positioned?
Stove expert replied: Are the flue systems lined as this would help to keep the gases warm? Is there an air brick in the room?
the words defra on the stove or or the box anywhere. I wanted to ask- is this OK? If its defra would the stove say so somewhere on it? Or not? I live in a smokeless zone and want to make sure I have a defra stove so I can't get in trouble. I wondered if anyone could tell me about this before I go to the expense of getting a fitter- should my stove say defra on it? I thought it would come with some sort of certificate or something? The place I bought it claimed it was defra, but I don't know how I can be sure. help!
Stove expert replied: The Firwefox stoves that comply to the smoke controlled areas will have an airwash that will not fully shut down. Then company that supplied this should be able to confirm which model they have sent and if it states clean burn on the receipt then this is the correct model.
the look of a much more expensive model and is very well made. It kicks out a fair amount of heat for its size and is easy to keep clean as the glass seems to just clean with a damp rag after use. I have mainly been just burning good seasoned wood, but I have tried stove nuts and anthracite in deep winter and this burns OK, but as it is the Defra clean burn version it's not really suitable for banking in as there is a factory set airflow.I would thoroughly recommend this stove and I would certainly plump for another if I ever need to replace this one.
if we leave the hall door open to let the heat drift upstairs. It seems well built, no rough edges and looks more expensive than it was. It burns well and is easy to control with a bit of practice. The glass stays clear whilst using and only has a bit of soot on it in a morning. I don't think there is any need to clean the glass every day but I just can't help myself! The ash pan only needs emptying every other day. If by any chance I had to renew it I would buy the same model.
