Stove expert replied: For a grate to burn through so quickly I would suggest that you may be over riddling the stove, or possibly using an incorrect fuel. Do try to leave a small bed of ash on the grate to protect it from intense direct heat and always remove the ash after riddling the stove. Changing to an alternative fuel may help e.g.anthracite burns really hot whereas another smokeless product has a less intense burn, so trying an alternative fuel may help to prolong the internal parts. Have you contacted your supplier over the lack of control as this can be followed up with the manufacturer.

Stove expert replied: As this has only happened occasionally it may be due to a cold flue, poor draw, wind direction or possibly not enough air in the room. It may be worth you speaking to your installer to get further advice.

Stove expert replied: Have you had a flue draught reading taken to ascertain the draw? A flue damper or stabilizer will help to control an overdrawing flue. I would suggest speaking to your installer for further advice.
