Review of Firemaster 5 stove

Old handle design issue

Ben Mullen 5 years ago

I have this stove but it has a different handle and catch set up to the one in the photo. It doesn't always hold the door closed sealed shut. I've called the manufacturer who advised me to tap the metal strip which is the catch. This works but only temporarily. So when buying this stove make sure you get the newer handle set up.
