took at least a week of burning to get rid of that new just painted fumey smell, within weeks the paint started to flake and has even rubbed off the door handle, this stove does not shut down to a slow burn like our previous one and after just one winter it looks like a cheap bit of tat. When we can afford to replace this stove it will not be for another Hunter model.
Stove expert replied: As this is a new stove site the reason that the stove does not shut down may be down to the flue draw being excessive and this needs further investigation, if this is the case then the stove is not at fault. As you have had a problem with the paint soon after purchase, did you go back to the supplier for comment from Hunter under warranty?

to control the rate of burn, no tarry deposits left on the windows, provided that the ends of logs aren't pointed right at the glass or it's not closed completely when left to burn down, and any tar deposited in these situations burns off very quickly. Economic consumption of wood, too, despite being lit most mornings and every evening in cold weather, sometimes all day.

as well as great sales advice. Wonderful service.
Stove expert replied: Great comments
paint that needs to burn of I have to say how impressed I am with it. It couldn't be easier to light, a couple of firelighters and a bundle of kindling to start with. I have the bottom vents and the top vent open to get it going and the flue warmed up then after a few minutes put some logs on close the bottom vents right up. The top vent then closed to halfway for a nice steady burn. It heats our 5m x 3m breakfast room / kitchen no problem I can't wait for next winter :-)
Stove expert replied: Great feedback for a stove giving good service.
open the door and the handle just unloosens but it doesn't open the door so have to take of handle and open the door with some form of pliers put the handle back on then tighten it up and then the same happens again when I put any pressure on handle it just unloosens it self any idea to what I can do.
Stove expert replied: Go back to your supplier for further assistance and if they are unable to advise how to overcome this see if you can get a replacement under warranty.
mine it's that if it's really windy outside it can be a bit awkward to light and when lit it won't burn as well as if it was not so windy.
to get the heat required, and I have tried all types of fuel.
Stove expert replied: Is the flue lined? Is the wood being used dry and seasoned with a moisture content of less than 20%? If you leave the bottom vent open a little does this help to maintain the fires momentum or try leaving the top vent fully open with the bottom closed once the fire is established. Logs that are no bigger than 100mm (4inch) diam should be used. Is this is a room that is well insulated where little air circulates as an airbrick may be required (depends on insulation, double glazing, cavity wall insulation etc)
