  • Jotul F100

    Anthony Ayre 11 months ago

    Overnight burning - I regularly burn with this stove 8 to 10 hours overnight with good results:- Firstly I purchased another Ash Pan to swap out when preparing for overnight burning. *** warning please note, it is better if 2 people carry this out*** 1) Let the fire burn down to leave a nice bed of red embers. 2) With the poker push the bed upwards and towards the back of the fire and swap the ash pans. 3) Lower the bed and place approx. 3/4 of a bucket of briquettes / smokeless fuel on the red embers. 4) Slide the top and bottom air controls across to half way. 5) Wake up the next morning to a warm room, put a piece or pieces of softwood on the fire to get flaming again. This will also help any residual ash fall. 6) Swap the ash pans as before. Good luck, I hope you have the same success as we are enjoying.... []

    Stove expert replied: Smokeless fuels come in many shapes and sizes and it is best to trial a few before buying in bulk as they do vary in how they burn, the amount of ash produced and flame picture etc. Once you find the one that suits you and your stove you will enjoy the results that overnight burning can bring.

    I have marked it down a little because I think Jotul (and others) are a little pricey and the firebox size doesn't allow it to be loaded up for all night burning. I stopped trying in fact as... []

  • Surprisingly bad for Jotul

    Simon Sena one year ago

    I have been in love with Jotul stoves since the end of the 70s, we had a 118 and a 121which we still have, as well as the N1 and they are perfect. I Bought the F100 and have had to move it around... []

    Stove expert replied: What a shame that the latest Jotul has not lived up to the previous models. Having had a few to compare it with and years of experience the F100 seems to fail to perform as expected even when moving to a longer flue. The flue draw will be imperative to get right especially with other working flues in the property.

  • Lovely little wood burner - but I wish I'd got a larger one

    Mike Vessey 2 years ago

    I ordered the Jotul F100 wood and I was delivered the US version, which has only a single top air vent (no bottom vent). Its not a problem. Just means I leave the door open a crack for 10... []

    Stove expert replied: You say you have a great draft, this may be taking the heat of the the firebox quickly and thus preventing the stove from providing the expected heat. Have you control over the rate of burn? Does the stove behave differently in different weather conditions? Might be worth investigating this further in case the flue draw exceeds what is recommended by the manufacturer.
