Review of Franco Belge Savoy Classic stove

Franco Belge Savoy classic

David HANNANT 2 years ago

10 years old . Since installing always burning too hard, appears cannot be improved on..Top plate cracked last year agents condemned stove and said not to be used..Had two baffle plates since new

Stove expert replied: Two baffle plates in 10 years is not excessive. If always burning too hard then likely to be an over drawing flue and this is not the fault of the stove. This can be checked and should be undertaken if you are planning to replace the stove as similar may occur with the replacement if the flue draw is too high!
