Review of Franco Belge Belfort stove

Burns well, but stinks the house out.

Stephen Price 3 years ago

We''ve used this burner about a dozen times...and it still smells the house out.

I''ve been told that the paint needs to cure then it''ll stop...how much longer will it take..

Stove expert replied: Normally the paint curing smell lasts for just a few firings. I suggest that if the smell persists, get the installation checked to insure that there is nothing close causing the smell. The stove paint cures and hardens with heat and the smell should not persist.
