    We have had our Limousin from new and is now 9 years old, we use it every day in the winter when heat is required.We have only had to fit new rope seals as service items, apart from the glass
    that I broke.We did not have a chimney in the room so the installer fitted us a stainless external one.This can cause problems with back draft after dusk, however we open the patio door for a few minutes gets the up draft needed. None of this is to do with the stove.Open up the top air wash and the door damper for the first 10 mins and away it goes. Damping down gradually until both are shut, the stove gives heat as required and adjustment of the damper allows increased heat when required. Really works well and we would buy one again tomorrow.Tip for over night burning, damp down and sprinkle ashes from the ash pan over a made up fire, give it a good rake out in the morning and use damper to increase airflow to adjust heat.

    Good fire but have had problems with the baffle and the back wall' going through one of each every two years (not good). The importer didn't want to know as soon as it was out of warranty, and
    neither did the manufacturer.However the parts were relatively inexpensive and easy to replace. I wouldn't buy another simply because of the poor aftersales.

    Stove expert replied: Franco belge stoves are a fairly good mid range stove, but sometimes it can make sense to pay a little extra to get something that bit better. It is not surprising that the importer and manufacturer did not want to know as it is the retailer who should be the first port of call for a customer. One should expect a decent retailer to help their customer get the spares needed for their stove. Baffle plates are generally not covered by any warranty - if they keep burning out then it sound a little like this stove might be being run a bit too hot on coal, and/or the chimney draft might at times be very strong. Fitting a draught stabiliser might help. I am not saying that this is the case here but it seems unlikely that this Franco Belge owner consistently got 'dudd' baffle plates and parts, and therefore much more likely that it was to do with how the stove was being used.
