Review of Firefox 5 stove

Baffled by a problem with my classic 5

Mike Boyle 2 years ago

Can anyone help

Had my fire 2 years no issue or no problems then one day tried to open the door as the handle just kept going round and round so could not open it. Ordered a new complete handle kit got it fitted and it worked fine till the next day same thing handle just kept going round and round completely baffled me and the guy that was fixing it and help I thought it might be heat related as it was always the next day after the fire was on but just don''t know getting really frustrating now

Stove expert replied: This seems very strange, the locking mechanism should prevent it from turning round completely unless something has happened with the door opening. When tightly fitted the handle and lock should only turn enough to open the door. Sorry I do not have any specific advice to give regarding this problem.
