Review of Lovenholm stove

SMELLY

2 years ago

Lovely burner in looks and heat output. I have the single door log burner so good view of flames. The only gripe I have is the noctious fumes given off when burning. The installer said it would smell initially as the paint "cures". We built up to 4 hrs burning as instructed, but its been 2 months now and the small makes me feel ill. Puts me off using it which is disappointing.

Stove expert replied: A stove, once the paint has cured should not produce any unpleasant smells so I would get the installation checked to ensure that there is nothing causing this (something too close perhaps to the flue system!). What fuel are you using and how hot are you operating your stove? It is a shame not to enjoy your stove and there will be a reason for this smell I am sure.
