Jotul F 100
The Jotul F100 is a 5.5kw output stove. The look of this Jotul stove is easy to recognise - it has a plain door or some delicate lattice work on the door.
You can have the stove in enamel finish.

We inherited this stove when we moved here. It's a poor thing compared with the 3 wood burners in our previous house (a Jotul, a Morso and a Charnwood). It's hard to light and draws poorly.... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: It sounds very much as if there is a poor draw on this flue system and this should be investigated by a professional to check that adequate air etc is available to allow combustion to occur. If this is found to be the case then the stove is not at fault. Getting smoke back into the room also indicates a poor draw, not enough air, wrong cowl etc. A full investigation of this installation is recommended as Jotul stoves normally work well producing a good heat.

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... [ read more ]

I have a Jotul F100. I was advised it would heat the small room I have it in and the heat would travel to other rooms. But the heat extends just a metre or so from the stove.Soon after I bought... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: If the stove is working hard and not producing much heat, then the flue draught may be greater than what is recommended by the manufacturer. This can be tested, and should it prove to be in excess of this, either a stabiliser or flue damper can be fitted to give the user more control. The heat may be being drawn up the flue before it has time to heat the stove, this could also be the cause of the baffle plate problem as an overdrawing stove can cause distortion to components.
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.... [ read more ]
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 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... [ read more ]
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.

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.
