Review of Franco Belge Belfort stove
Burns well, but stinks the house out.
Had this fitted during the summer...hetas tested..I''ve been told that the paint needs to be cured...how long does this take...I''m opening nearly every door and window to clear the smell..its been on about a dozen times now & it''s still as bad as the first time...thinking of ripping it out & buying a decent one
Stove expert replied: The paint will cure usually after a few firings, gently increasing the heat to an average working temperature. If the smell persists do look further than the stove as there may be something in the flue installation that is causing a smell, very unusual for a prolonged smell so worth getting checked out.
