up along the back and the grate at the bottom has a large hole in it. The stove door rope cord is breaking up too. We have never have trouble lighting it but found the air control lever works if pulled out or pushed in but makes no difference if moved to the left or the right. We have used kindling wood and firelighter to light it and solid smokeless fuels along with logs. We are so disappointed at the quality of this stove we were not aware they were so delicate!! We purposely did not go for a cheap Chinese import and thought we were getting a quality British made product. It''s a pity there are no zeros on the ratings below!
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.

the stove; which has resulted in smoke coming out of every orifice of the fire and filling the room with smoke - which is not very pleasant. Which is a great shame with such a good product.
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.

this on and open the door to my kitchen and the heat also goes upstairs and warms the bathroom and landing.
Stove expert replied: The ash drawer needs to be free of soot / ash deposits to insure a good seal, a stove ash vaccum can help to clean this area if problems are being experienced.
year is not acceptable and bear in mind the prices of spares do vary depending on the supplier. Not only this but the paint is peeling off and there is rust underneath. I spoke to their technical department but didn't get any answers, despite me telling them I've been using various woodburners for years. This is rather a shame, as I really like the looks and function of the stove, I just wish the quality of build and materials were higher...
on stove deals with high temperatures not moisture ! The company agreed to replace the top of stove but not pay for labour costs. This would have been very costly. My partner resprayed affected areas with appropriate paint. The treated surfaces have since been exposed to moisture, water spillages etc and are still in tact !!! Re-inforcing our thoughts that the original paint finish was substandard.The stove heats well, but the problems with paint for cost of product is disappointing.
"sealed system" and I think it helps the fire to burn efficiently. Flame picture is hypnotic, and airwash is good. If the glass does soot up a little when lighting the airwash clears it when control lever is moved to full secondary air. Haven't tried it on solid fuel yet, but will come back and give a report when I have. It does everything we want, and really looks stylish. Warning! Handle gets VERY HOT. Supplied mitt is necessary
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.
