day it has been the best heating appliance I have ever purchased, it chucks out loads of heat with either wood or coal. I often only use wood as it gets too hot in the room with just coal and this is with it on a low to medium vent setting. I haven't had to replace anything on it until today when I noticed the door glass is cracked (I think that's acceptable after all this time!) so it's a big thumbs up from me!!
Stove expert replied: Great review.

an electric fan placed underneath to force some hot air out of the top vents(similar to the american set ups)Without the fan there is no heat.I wish I would have bought a free standing one, at least the heat has chance to escape into the room rather than into the wall and up the chimney.It has been fitted as per manufacturers instructions.
Stove expert replied: Insert models should produce heat into the room providing it has been insulated round the insert box to prevent the heat from radiating into the builders opening. Worth checking!

have mine two and a half years and am on my 3rd baffle plate, second set of side pieces and my second grate. the internal bricks also need to be completely replaced. I look on it now as the same as servicing or replacing parts in your car of oil burner....If I want heat I have to be prepared to replace the parts. Burn logs and it's only nice to look at but no heat at all. It was properly installed by a reputable fireplace company.
Stove expert replied: It was properly installed by a reputable fireplace company. This may be the main reason why you are so disappointed with the output that this stove produces - not the fault of the stove!
for maximum effect.
Stove expert replied: Good review marked quite low with the comments the customer has made.
MANUAL QUOTES HAVING THE AIRWASH CONTROL OPEN ABOUT 50% BUT IF U OPEN IT MORE THAN A FRACTION THE HEATED AIR VENTING OUT APPEARS TO BE SUCKED INTO THE STOVE ( THE VENTING CONTROL FOR AIRWASH AND HEATED AIR COMING OUT ARE IN THE SAME COMPARTMENT. I CONTACTED BOTH MAIN SUPPLIER AND HUNTER STOVES IN CASE THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG AND ALTHOUGH I WAS OFFERED ADVICE I COULDN'T GET A SITE VISIT WHICH I REQUESTED ( JUST TO CHECK EVERYTHING WAS OK AS I AM UNFAMILAR WITH INSET STOVES OR ANY MULTIFUEL SYSTEMS.
Stove expert replied: sounds to me like the installer (or an installer) should be booked in for a site visit here. It sounds like there could be a strong draw on the chimney.
