Great wee fire but the lever at the top doesn't move. I am assuming it is for adjusting the flue but it doesn't move or do anything. Is it supposed to?

Stove expert replied: It could be that the draw on this flue is greater than the other flue and hence causing less controllability, you may wish to investigate if a damper will help. Defra Approved stoves will not shut down completely as they have been modified to allow a bleed of air at all times to keep the flue gases diluted and cleaner emissions for the smoke controlled areas..

Stove expert replied: Spares may seem expensive but if you average it over the four years it is a reasonable amount for the operating times that a stove is used and for the heat it is generating, which also saves on other heating costs. You can purchase a sheet of the liner material that you cut yourself which may make it cheaper and worth exploring.
Had this stove for two winters now and it is fab. Only burning seasoned wood, which more than heats our cold room. I have also had an issue with smoke coming back into the house on occasions when initially trying to get the fire going. Any ideas? Is it due to cold flu?... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Yes most probably due to a cold flue, try leaving the door slightly open initially as this will help to lift the flue gasses ans warm the flue faster. Check that the cowl on the chimney is the correct one and also check that you have enough air in the room.
