  • very disappointing for an expensive stove

    Nigel Clarke 2 weeks ago

    Despite following the instructions from the fitter and from the user manual it is impossible to add fuel without smoke bellowing out and stinking out the conservatory. Have to open windows to... []

    Stove expert replied: This is 99% likely to be due to the chimney rather than the stove. There are a couple of things that could be happening here. Modern stoves are getting more and more efficient - that also means they tend to be more heavily baffled - so they are less forgiving if your chimney does not draw well. Often a chimney for a conservatory stove will either be quite short, or it may have several bends in it to take it back to the main house and then up. It can also be due to not enough air coming into the room - as you open the door of a stove air needs to rush up the chimney or it will smoke into the room. You can test whether this is the case by opening a window when you try to refuel. The solution to the chimney, if that is the problem (which is very likely), is often simply to make it higher. I am sure that Mendip stoves would like to help guide you in how you might make the chimney work better - I can put you in touch with them if you like?

  • Back to the drawing board

    Ken Bacon 10 months ago

    A design that needs a complete rethink. Sharp edges underneath the stove, so when adjusting airflow, danger of cutting yourself. Log retaining bar far too small. Open the door and the log falls... []

    Stove expert replied: The Mendip Woodland model is a wide fronted stove with a low output of below 5kW and due to itsí design can be installed close to combustible walls, itsí slim design keeps the output below 5kW. When burning this stove one log should be burnt at a time using 1.2 -1.4 kg of wood. The log retainer is designed for this style of burning and if operated as described the log retainer will retain the logs within the fire chamber. The Woodland has a singular air control lever below the door, this lever will remain cool during operation and controls primary/ secondary air into the stove. This levers operation should mean that the operator does not come into contact with the underneath of the stove and a glove is recommended to be used when operating the controls. For a larger output Mendip Stoves manufacture the Woodland Large 8kw this has a deeper chamber. These stoves are made to the highest standard and quality checked before they are sold.
