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... [ read more ]
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.

I use anthracite and have burnt through the metal baffle plate. The rear firebrick is just 3 inches high and the baffle plate sits on that. So if you try to have a larger fire the fuel is... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Anthracite is one of the hotter smokeless fuels on the market. There are many alternatives which may be considered for the future use of this stove. The internal parts, depending on how hard you are firing the stove and on how much fuel you are putting in the firebox, can be exposed to very high temperatures, so controlling the rate of burn and amount of fuel is critical.
I had this woodburner installed in my last house 20 years ago ( it''s still going strong) and chose it again for my new house, fantastic little stove. I have recently had a problem with the... [ read more ]
Had this little beauty already installed when we bought the cottage. Back boiler has never been used or connected. Can I replace it with a fire brick
Stove expert replied: If the back boiler has been installed without water being connected then yes this should be done as a matter of urgency. No boilers (either add in or integral) should be put under fire with out being connected to the water system. An internal liner should replace the add in boiler and the tapping holes sealed with blanking discs.
The stove was already installed when we bought the house, about two years before we moved in. The stove is in the back snug and the room can get quite cold so we keep the stove going 24/7 for... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: A liner is recommended for a property of this age. 316 grade liners come with a 10yr warranty and are best suited to woodburning stoves and the 904 grade liners has a 20 year warranty and is best suited for the multifuel burning stoves. I would go back to see what you had fitted as you may be able to claim under warranty depending on what was supplied.
I've had my stove in for around 12yrs now, it's never let me down. Once every 18mths -2yrs I remove it from its resting place, take it to my garage strip it down and replace all seals including... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Maintenance is important to ensure that a stove will function as expected, a little time and effort will certainly bring rewards over a stoves lifetime. Gaskets, rope seals, baffle plates, grates etc should be regularly inspected and replaced when needed.
Really good stove, I installed it about 10 years ago and has been fine until this year I made a terrible mistake I put some coal that I had got from the mother in law, trouble was I didn't realise... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: In the exploded diagram it looks like the frame slots in once the oscillating grate has been removed, refer to the manual for further guidance.
We bought this stove just before Christmas and had it fitted straight away. I love it! I burn wood and Taybrite and it never goes out. Each morning I come down, rake it out, empty the ashes... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Good feedback and this stove is producing a good amount of heat and seems to be working well.
This little unit sits in the study, the coldest room in a 350 year old house - the room has three external walls and is single storey with minimal insulation. It just manages to keep the room... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Recommend emptying the ashpan at least daily to insure longevity of the grate, if hot ash left in the ashpan it can shorten the life as it is being cooked from both sides! In the summer check the riddle as it may just need cleaning with emery paper to remove surface debris that has built up over time. Annual maintenance always worth doing so that no nasty surprises occur when the next heating season begins.
We installed our wood burner 2 years ago and I am still delighted. We live in NE Scotland have had two very hard winters and the stove has kept the house warm without us using the gas central... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: great that the stove is working well for you. To seal the flue another option is either fire rope wrapped around and pushed into the gap with fire cement on top, or high temperature silicone. Both are a bit more flexible.
