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!
we be able to purchase one?thanks
Stove expert replied: It should be possible providing enough space has been allowed behind the stove for the pipe connections. The blanking discs are designed to be knocked out so are partial thickness normally.
Stove expert replied: As these are newly released stoves following the company being taken over the whole range of accessories may not yet be available, this is not something that is listed currently.
Stove expert replied: Very positive comments
Franco Belge which was a waste of time. We now have to buy a new stove. It will not be another FB. The inspector who is fully qualified said it was caused by the air wash which had not been connected to the external control knob, thus being stuck permanently fully open.
Stove expert replied: What a shame, a stove should be controllable so as to allow a gentle slumbering flame picture and if this is not achievable then this should be investigated to prevent over-drawing and the problems caused by this.
Stove expert replied: This stove has a 5 year warranty so this should be covered by this.
the top rim, where there seems to be a gap of about 5mm. Looking at the manual, the stove comes in sections to be bolted together and is not in one piece. Problem is solved by packing the gap with fire rope. Not sure if this is a design flaw or bad installation.
Stove expert replied: Glad to hear you have solved the problem.
, needless to say it will not be a Franco Belge.
Stove expert replied: The cast craking can be down to many causes and this shoudl be investigated further. A stove thermometer will insure that it is ioperated within the correct perameters and is a good investment. Modern stoves will have been adapted and improved and as this is 10 years old should not be compared to a new product.
ate them up, so I tried coal which was better but still burns too quick! I did not bank it up at bed time but there was still embers in the morning which soon took hold when I added some coal. I got the red enamel and it looks cool. So far so good, hope it stays like this! Once I find a slower fuel I'm using a coal smokeless........any suggestions for a good fuels? What are the man made Eco logs like?Alan.
Stove expert replied: If the stove is working hard and you have little control (not sure that I would say your does as it stayed in overnight) there are things that can be done to the flue to slow the draw. Further investigation recommended.
