Had this Monaco three seasons. Not used very much,but baffle plate keeps falling down into the grate. I am the only person who loads the stove,so I am careful not to disturb the plate by ramming... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: If the stove is over-drawing (you have no way of shutting down to a slumber mode) then this may have caused a slight distortion to the baffle plate and hence it not staying in place. A stove should be controllable and the flue may require a damper or stabilizer to address the lack of control currently.

We replaced a warped baffle flue on our 2008 Monaco - within days the new one had dropped. This was initially due to using the wrong bolts to retain the half moon retaining piece. They must... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Sound a neat solution. Any alterations to a stove though are done outside the normal warranty conditions that apply.
Do suggest you do not buy this stove unless you are prepared to replacie warped baffles on a regular basis. We were told when we bought ours that Franco-Belge had addressed the issue but it... [ read more ]

I have been a Hetas installer for some yrs now and have fitted 1000s of stoves and I have the Franco belge Monaco in my front room as it is one of the best around, in my opinion.

Great stove but there is definitely a design issue with the baffle. Our Monaco has been installed for five years and the first baffle warped and was replaced at a nominal cost by the dealer... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Two baffle plates in five years is not excessive, disappointing maybe. Consumable items will need replaceing on any stove.
I posted a review on here some time ago about the flue baffle warping and failing, I had 3 baffles in 4 years. The stove was replaced with a franco belge savoy which is truly excellent.
The first baffle lasted about two and a half years before it dropped out. Over the next two and a half years we went through another two baffles, and in the end I was not prepared to put up... [ read more ]
