Review of Franco Belge Belfort stove
Burns well, but stinks the house out.
Does anyone know how to contact Franco Belge..this stove is now an expensive ornament..had an engineer out..nothing wrong with the installation..it''s all down to the paint...top gets hot ( no smell )...put a bit more wood on..& I mean just a little bit, & we have to evacuate the building.
Stove expert replied: Any smell that comes from a stove can only be from the heat it generates and initially it will be the paint curing. After the first few firings any smell will be down to the installation or fuel used. It may be that something is close to the flue in the chimney that is the cause. The stove in essence is a cast iron box so there is nothing that can cause a prolonged smell.
