changed the baffle plate and gasket etc by myself but it was very easy!If this got broken and I had to buy one again, I would go for a bigger one and one you can cook on.Other than that, I'm very satisfied with this f250.
the range, it is a superb stove with the best secondary I have ever used...it is just s gem.
Stove expert replied: it may also be that the people below did not have a good chimney draw. Very efficient stoves tend to be heavily baffled which means that they require a better draw to work well. They also give more heat to the room and less up the chimney so this can compound the problem. In which case the 250 should either have gone onto an insulated chimney or one of the alternative stoves installed instead as it is not very suitable for a poor chimney as some other stoves are.
other wood burners and without exception they each outperform the 250. One of them is a 'cheap and cheerful' stove that is so much more responsive and easier to light, another is a cook stove that burns all night with great ease, ( the Jotul did not). Soooo we were happy with the Jotul but realize that our happiness would not have been had we known what we know now!! We would absolutely not buy one again. Hope this is helpful to someone.

for extra heating of a room that is 6x4m and 4m high. It does the job easily and gives off enough heat to warm up the adjacent rooms too. If you want a larger firebox, I suspect you need to go for a higher heat output, and then you really need a larger room. The fire box is large enough for my purposes, but keeping the stove going overnight would be a problem if I wanted to do so. Still, I find enough embers in the morning to get the fire going again with a few puffs of air. The controllability is not so great unless the ashtray has been recently emptied (I empty mine about once a week) and the firewood is really dry. It is never a problem to create a raging fire though, as leaving the door slightly ajar brings in extra air. The airwash works great once the fire is hot enough (after 2-3 minutes) and a strong chimney draft develops. Until then, leaving the door ajar increases the draft and resolves the problem.
burn dry, seasoned wood and we empty the tray every 3 or 4 days. It's a lovely looking stove, very plain and simple, with a big galss window so you really see the fire. The vents are easy to get the hang of and provide some control. We went for a dark grey finish with a stainless steel chimney pipe. The stainless steel has turned (at the bottom) from silver to purple over time, so if you don't like this look at getting a black pipe. Because it has a curved top, which looks lovely, you can't put your coffee cup on there or warm plates, that's the only disadvantage.
Stove expert replied: One can also just spray the stainless steel flue pipe to a colour of choice, even once it is fitted.
