quite dramatically in the third year!! It has bowed quite considerably into the firebox and needs to be replaced. Substandard construction materials no doubt! (chinese steel? And imported?) This has resulted from the stove running at a quarter of its heat output so please, no replies on running too hot or turn your stove down!! The main body of the stove apparantly carries a lifetime guarantee and the inside components a 5 year guarantee. The handle is also a dreadfull design, loose and cheap fitting and actually the worst I have ever seen on a stove which is a pity as the main body appears to have such strength and quality. Also the RAM (rapid air movement) does not compare with the performance of stoves with primary and secondary controls for flame picture. Not a recommended purchase unfortunately
Stove expert replied: The failed parts are being replaced with modern better constructed materials that will reflect the same stove that is currently sold by Merlin so the customer is now happy with this product.

more sadly it has gone again for the 2nd time. Also the door rope failed in year 1. The side bricks have failed in year 3. I must say I would expect a stove bought for its quality (and resulting price) should last longer before major returns. As I said this is a good stove but some components/quality let it down and I have recently decided to go for a Morso instead. Andrew Jenkins
Stove expert replied: Internal components such as baffle / throat plates, side bricks and rope seals are subjected to varying degrees of heat depending on how the stove is operated and classed as consumable items. It is a shame that you have had to replace the throat plate twice, it may be that you are overdrawing it and perhaps should operate it on a sightly lower setting - a stove thermometer will help you with the ideal temperature it should be operated at.
