  • loxton 5 disappointment

    We had the stove fitted December 2016 - it has only been lit evenings and not every day even in winter, so far it has not had two winter''s use but already the insulation boards are breaking... []

    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.

  • Great Stove but Occasional Problems with Lighting

    Steven Morrison 5 years ago

    Stove looks great and produces a lot of heat; enough to warm most of the downstairs in our house (and a lot cheaper than Gas C/H).But ... on six occasions we have had big problems with lighting... []

    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.
