We bought this stove 3 years ago. A crack has formed at the top of it. We contacted the company and were told that we weren't covered by the warranty as apparently you are not supposed to burn... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: House hold coal is not recommended on a closed appliance due to the long flames that subject the internal components to higher than normal working temperatures. The manual states 3.2 Solid fuel: • Burn only anthracite or manufactured briquette smokeless fuels listed as suitable for use with closed heating appliances Do not burn bituminous coal, ‘petro-coke’ or other petroleum based fuels as this will invalidate the product guarantee.

Stove expert replied: Stovax have done what they said they would by calling you back, to make a charge to come out to inspect a fault is not uncommon with manufacturers and in some cases they do not have engineers so can't offer this service. The grate fowling may be down to the type of fuel used as they do vary greatly and perhaps an alternative should be tried. You state that it clogs up in no time, not really sure how long you mean, do you clear the stove out daily? Ash hoovers are readily available for removing any ash that fails to fall into the ashpan and the hearth is there for the very reason you explain to prevent ash from falling onto any combustible materials and should be made from a material that is easily cleaned.
We were persuaded to replace a perfectly good Jetmaster fire with the Stovax woodburner. What a mistake! It is poorly made, it is very difficult to control (either burns like a furnace or smoulders... [ read more ]
We stupidly bought two Huntingdon stoves. They look great in situ but do not give off the heat that we were told they would. They do not stay in over night and therefore it costs a fortune to... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: How sad that the stoves have failed to give you the expected heat. Did you get the installations checked, this is key to insure the heat generated goes where is should. It is not always the stoves fault!
