  • Firefox 8 rusting!

    Lauren Hillary 4 months ago

    Hi, I've been living in my house for almost a year and have only turned on the gas stove probably 4 times the whole time I've lived here. Mainly because I never felt like it gave off enough... []

    Stove expert replied: The stove should be serviced annually by a gas safe engineer so this would be a good starting place and he can re fill the flue connection as required. If water is getting down the flue system this should also be investigated and work undertaken to prevent in the future. There will be spray paint that can be purchased to cover affected areas once they have been cleaned and prepared, do mask the surrounding area to prevent further damage.

  • firefow 8 top adjustment never worked

    John Pollock 4 years ago

    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?

    Really like my Firefox woodburner. However a log has become lodged behind the lock on the inside making it impossible to open the door. Any solutions appreciated!

  • Firefox 8 Classic & Firefox 8 both Defra approved

    David Day 5 years ago

    Had the Classic 8 fitted in the kitchen with Twin Wall Chimney, only had 3 small fires to break it in, great to light and control by the secondary air, only burning wood sycamore between 15-... []

    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..

    Had this for 4 years now and it was a nice little burner, BUT now all the bricks have disintegrated and the top baffle plate is warped down by at least 1.5 inches and is cracked. Replacing the... []

    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.
