Fireline FP5 stove

The Fireline FP5 is a 5 Kw Defra exempt stove. There are two models available; burning and multi-fuel. A 12mm hearth is okay if your burning dry wood, however - if you burn smokeless fuels you will need a smokeless kit.

    Really disappointed, had another make previously and was really pleased, but this burner flies through fuel, not easy to maintain and when you go the web site it's not helpful

    Stove expert replied: If the stove is using lots of fuel and not controllable, the flue draw may be in excess of what the manufacturer advises. This can be rectified by a flue damper or stabiliser in most cases and is not the fault of the stove. It is worth investigating further to see if a better control can be achieved to insure that you get an effective and efficient rate of burn.

  • Not very good

    Sue Radford 6 months ago

    Had this stove installed in March 2019 and compared to our previous Clearview stoves, this one is very disappointing. Reasonably easy to light but keeping it lit is a whole different ball game... []

    Stove expert replied: If the glass is discolouring you may not be keeping the airwash open enough. You should be able to control the rate of burn by gently moving the controls until a steady rate of burn is achieved. A stove thermometer is recommended to insure that the stove operates within the given temperatures. Stoves do vary greatly so it is worth spending time to get to know a new one and how it operates effectively.

  • Not a patch on a Clearview

    Been installed 9 months. Having previously had Clearview stoves in other houses, this is sadly not in the same league. Very temperamental, never yet managed to keep it lit overnight as we did... []

  • Very disappointed

    Sherri Inker one year ago

    I purchased and had fitted a FIRELINE stove manufactured by Charlton and Jenrick and I have regretted every penny spent. 1. Front main knob broke on first use and manufacturer merely sent a replacement to be self fitted (I am a women living alone) hardly customer service 2. After 3 uses top vent knob snapped and broke and again unable to use fire. This fire that I looked forward too has turned into a useless sub standard item that was with fitting extremely costly. I have requested manufacturers to visit and view. May be I had a poor one off the line but with so many alternatives I wish I had bought something from a different manufacture. Think twice and thoroughly check alternatives.... []

    Stove expert replied: Did you go back to your supplier regarding the warranty issues that have been experienced? It is a shame and unusual that you have had two knobs breaking in a short space of time. Not what is normally expected.

    Good little stove and been installed for over 3 years. I, like previous reviewers have slight discoloring / soot to the glass but this is generally down to closing down the air wash controls... []

    Stove expert replied: Contact a spares company for a rope replacement price or a genuine spare as rope comes in many densities and diam. so the correct product should be used.

    Stove expert replied: Glass cleaning - a damp cloth dipped in vinegar or woodash should help to remove discoloration and is cheaper than a branded hob cleaner. A non stick scourer with cream cleaner also does the same and doesn't scratch the glass surface.

    Stove expert replied: Seems very strange that the handle has melted twice, is the fire burning fiercely or are you able to close it down?

    Great stove in terms of look and heat output, however I am having problems slowing my burn down, flame is always very flickery no matter how much I turn top vent down, half a turn too much the... []

    Stove expert replied: It sounds like the control to regulate the rate of burn is very fine. With practice I am sure you will find where it is best suited, a small adjustment and leave for a few mins at a time is advised seeing as half a turn is too much.
