Review of Newbourne 40FS stove

Top slider

Jeffrey Wells one year ago

Top slider jams so cannot operate stove properly. Called out some firm to take a look at it and all he did was spray some WD 40 on it which lasted a couple of days.There must be a proper solution.

Stove expert replied: You do not say how old the product is, if under 12 months I would advise that you go back to your supplier to see if this can be addressed under warranty. A longer lasting fix might be to use graphite powder on the moving part, it may need this again in the future if no obvious way of loosening the slider is evident. Graphite powder is not affected by heat whereas WD40 will be. Does this only happen when the stove is hot?
