Review of Happy stove

Not so Happy

Steve 7 years ago

The quality and build of this stove very poor. When I received mine, all the screws were loose and the fire cement had crumbled between the internal firebricks. The fire rope that seals the glass was too short with gaps and had to be replaced. The door handles are flimsy and do not pull the doors tight against the body of the stove. The airflow control was also not airtight and constantly needs tightening so best to keep a screwdriver handy. The metal body of the stove is very thin and the enamel coating chips easily. The flue is supposed to be 4" but is actually 4.5" meaning that getting pipes to fit this stove is always going to be difficult.

Stove expert replied: Rather a sad review, have you been back to the manufacturer with the faults outlined?
