a bit difficult to close.
Stove expert replied: Glass is not covered by any manufacturer, if it cracks it can be down to various factors, it could have been knocked when loading the stove, it could be a stress point from the securing parts. It can be compared to a windscreen going on a car, sometimes the cause is obvious, like a stone hitting it and at other times a crack can appear seemingly from nowhere, would you expect the manufacturer to pay for the replacement after a few months of use? Regarding the clean air technology, have you re-read the manual to check that the guidance given matches the manufacturers instructions? Are you using dry and seasoned wood with a moisture content of less than 20%? Is there enough air getting into the stove to ensure a good rate of burn - a stove should not slumber for prolonged periods. Perhaps the door needs adjustment to assist the closure of it, again there may be guidance in the manual that comes with the stove.

Stove expert replied: Please check that there is plenty of air in the room as this may be the cause, check the output of stove and amount of free air that is required for this. It sounds like the gases are not getting away from the firebox effectively hence the fuel is burning too slowly causing glass discoloration, a stove thermometer will also mean you can check how the stove is operating so this would also prove a beneficial purchase.

after start of best burn area on thermostat, glass that started to soot up begins to burn off. Also need to reload when initial fuel can be broken up with poker to make good hot ember bed for next fuel. Put next fuel in place and use left lever to let in air and maintain 300F. As the thermostat temperature moves up towards 400F close the vent down to control room temperature but don't let stove drop below 300F unless burning out as glass would start to soot up if burning below 300F for long periods. If room temperature is too hot when stove is burning at minimum 300F open a door or window to control room temperature. I have found this stove needs 300F for the air wash to work efficiently.
Stove expert replied: A stove flue thermostat is an excellent way to maintain the most efficient and effective rate of burn, a must to any stove user.
to have a direct vent pipe installed from the outside directly to the stove. It improved (it was a disaster without it) but I still can''t recommend it. The worst bit is we were told the Langdale had an airwash system (well.....don''t believe everything you''re told). The most annoying thing is the grate inside is completely fixed and static making cleaning so fiddly. The side grates sit so close to the glass one must devise an implement (smaller than a toothbrush) to chivy in-between grate and glass. They stupidly are not removeable so each and every clean is a chore. I burn only wood and it is well seasoned and dry.
