I bought the FB Mk II in Dec 2010 but it has only been used occasionally, being in the room we use only for special occasions. I had been mostly happy with the stove as it belted out a good... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: If you are getting smoke back every time you refuel the stove I would recommend getting further advice on the flue system you currently have. Do get the rope seal replaced and also the baffle plate as the operation of the appliance will be altered when these are not functioning properly.
Having read some of the reviews some of them very bad I was a bit put off ..I have now been running the savoy mk11 for 14 weeks and it is a fantastic... its easy to light ..gives out lots of... [ read more ]
We replaced a jetmaster open fire with this stove about 8 months ago due to a chimney fire, relined chimney and a reduced flue size. We loved the jetmaster for the look and feel of an open fire... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Enamel stoves change colour when being used and this is quite normal but customers can find this alarming if not prepared for it. Nice comments.
The stove looks nice with a large viewing window and gives off decent heat but it cannot be closed down enough. Once up to temperature both vents are closed and never need to be adjusted again... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Do let us know if this corrects the draw issue.
Overall excellent stove. I have had other makes of stoves with problems to do with the airwash system and build quality but none of these problems with my new Savoy. It looks beautiful. The... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Check the door seals are effective, you could fit a damper or flue stabilizer to gain more control if seals are effective.
I've owned the stove for 3 months. In those 3 months I have used it frequently and with great relish.However: 3 months in the upper fire brick on the baffle has broken into 3 pieces (its too... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Disappointing feedback of this stove which seems to be very problematic after such a short period. Have you contacted supplier over sheared door bolt as this should be covered by the warranty and any damage caused from this I would hope should be looked at sympathetically.
We installed the stive 3 months ago. We have burnt seasoned hardwood in it.The stove is smart and tidy and has a great window that allows you to see the fire. It produces a lot of heat and... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: the smoke coming out is probably more down to chimney than the stove. I would hope that the other problems are sorted by the supplier.
We installed our Savoy Mk II in August 2010. Within a few weeks we were experiencing problems with the back and top fire bricks cracking. At that time, Franco Belge were aware of the problem... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Franco Belge have made changes to overcome this fault but this does not help existing customers. It is a shame as it is a good looking stove that is reasonably priced.
We love the warmth, big window, super air wash and ease of use but....It was installed by a (so called) Hetas engineer and we have had several problems:1) We have continually had smoke smell... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: The loud clicking noise, where is it coming from? If the airwash, check that it has been welded fully in place. Yous say that the glass may be down to a log falling on it, could the liners be down to refuelling energetically?
After much humming and haaing, I decided to buy the Franco Belge savoy Elegance Mk2 & have it installed by a Heetas installer.It is well made and finished well.It has a good sized window enabling... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Liners / bricks are not covered under warranty neither is the glass. Fuel quality and seasoning so important to insure that glass stays clean and heat produced effectively.
