  • Glass has cracked !!

    Stephen Norris 3 weeks ago

    Have started to use it again in October and noticed lots of tiny marks on the glass we burn mostly logs but do use coal as well. Got in touch with our installer who then spoke to his supplier... []

    Stove expert replied: Household coal is not recommended on a closed appliance. Most smokeless fuels that end in ite are suitable eg: phurnacite, anthracite, maxibrite, taybrite. If the marks are like a spiders webb, that creep across the glass then this is due to the stove not be used correctly.Iit is being left to slumber for pro-longed periods and the flue gases are staying in the firebox for longer than normal, setting up a chemical reaction with the glass surface. It will not clean off, and has not affected to integrity of the glass. Short periods of fast burn are recommended, at least twice a day if continuous burning is taking place, these should last between 15-20 mins max.

    I have owned and used this stove for 2 years - super quick to light and super fast to heat up ! With the addition of smokeless fuel it burns for 8 hours through the night ! Actually thinking of buying another to replace the kitchen one ! That or an Aga !... []

  • Heta stove

    Rob Stanes 3 months ago

    Some reviews are positive and some not, you have to decide when buying something who shouts loudest, when I purchased mine I listened to all the singing, However I have to say that tonight it... []

    Stove expert replied: As with most things peoples experiences will differ and this is a case in point!. If the stove was working hard but not producing heat the likely cause is an over-drawing flue that is sucking the heated air up the chimney before it has time to heat the stove and radiate into the surrounding space. You do not give much in the way of detail except the length of time it took to produce heat. What fuel were you using? Was it dry and well seasoned with a moisture content of less than 20%. It may well not be the stove at fault, it is certainly worth investigating this further.

  • Instructions

    John Edwards one year ago

    The stove is good. And gives out great amounts of heat. Instructions are poor. No reference to cleaning out the stove after use. No mention of riddling with the control lever provided .

  • Not what I expected !

    Christine Hughes one year ago

    Had this fire installed as restricted space. Pleased with look of fire and great when burning wood but had hoped it was multi fuel and wanted to burn anthracite. I have tried with not much success... []

    Stove expert replied: Perhaps try an alternative smokeless fuel as anthracite may not suit this stove, do leave the bottom air controls open and have a clear ashpan so that air can pass through the grate and fuel. Different fuels do burn at different rates so if you try a few you may find a more suitable product.

  • Fantastic stove

    Ian Wortley 3 years ago

    I installed it myself and I was able to find little in the way of instruction for doing so. I drilled a 5" hole straight through the wall at the back to fit the 4" semi-rigid aluminium pipe... []

    Stove expert replied: Running a stove on max should not exceed periods of 20 - 30mins at any one time, they do need to work but not flat out for prolonged periods. Ideally short periods of fast burn should be undertaken with a slumbering period in between. Wood that is picked from hedgerows should still be dried and used only when the moisture content is less that 20%. Finally as this is a self installation, do get it signed off by your local Building Control Office, this is important when a Hetas Engineer has not been used.
