Review of Newbourne 40FS stove

The look of the stove is great , I have a couple of niggles , the glass is getting sooty even though this should be clearview. The second niggle is that I can constantly hear the air flow and it gets a bit annoying ,I didn't get that with our old burner.

Stove expert replied: Is the flue lined? Does the air flow noise continue if the controls are fully shut? It may be that the flue draw is excessive for this stove!
