  • Hot handle but lovely fire

    Ashley Harrison 11 months ago

    Purchased this stove in both my old house and now my new one. In my old house the handle never got too hot but with the new one I have, the handle isn't touchable and is a problem? It doesn'... []

    Stove expert replied: Have you gone back to your supplier? This may be a change that has been made and often a manufacturer provides a glove for opening the stove due to the handle getting hot.

  • Update on fire

    2 years ago

    Now we are into the winter months thought I would give update on the stove , Can't fault it no problems to report on stove Door handle etc I when it is up and running , you get a great heat from the fire as explained in last post Now that I have the experience of the air I controls I find the best setting for good burning to set the top & bottom air settings to 1/4 of an inch from shut This gives a good burn on logs , also when adding new logs place log on fire and leave door open slightly till log catches fire ,then shut door , but as said still very happy with this fire...

  • AWFUL AVOID!!!!!!

    Lee Frost one year ago

    I've had the stove for two months, during this time we've not used the stove everyday however the ''fire brick'' material inside has degraded massively, the back is heavily pitted, the two bottom... []

    Stove expert replied: The internal liners can continue to be used if they are cracked providing they are protecting the metal of the stove. If they have become damp they will deteriorate more quickly and care when loading the stove is important not to heavily impact them with the fuel if possible. They are not covered by warranty as deemed as consumable. You could try reversing the ones that are showing most wear so that you can use the stove and purchase replacements when required. Both faces can normally be used.

  • Burning problems

    Helen Wilkinson one year ago

    Having problems with The log burner burning to hard. Even with both top & bottom totally shut.As a result burning a lot of fuel.We had the burner fitted by a heatas approved fitter.Putting a... []

    Stove expert replied: The flue may have an excessive draw on it and you may need to have a damper or stabilizer fitted to gain better control of the appliance. This requires further investigation, as a matter of urgency, as leaving it burning too vigorously can lead to permanent damage to the appliance and will invalidate the warranty.

  • Update after one year

    Colin Anderson one year ago

    The fire performed well over the winter months, still no problems to report after a lot of use , like all fires I guess if you are a novice, like myself, you learn as you go on how to use the... []

    Stove expert replied: Good review. It is paramount that the fuel used is dry and seasoned and has a moisture content of less than 20% not only for the heat that is generated but to maintain a clear flue.

  • Fire bricks

    Anne ValentineSmith one year ago

    We have had our Newborne 40fs since the end of November (3 months) and had to replace the top (roof) fire brick 3 times already! We are definitely not banging it and seems to split and fall... []

    Stove expert replied: The glass discolouring with a white milky shadow is normally caused by the stove over-firing, this may be down to operator error or an over -drawing flue. If the stove is not controllable, so that you can achieve a gentle flame picture, then the flue draw should be taken and if it exceeds the manufacturers guidelines this needs to be rectified. Either a flue damper or stabilizer is required to prevent further damage. The top brick breaking 3 times in such a short space of time may indicate an over-drawing flue and if you get this corrected the problem may be resolved.

    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... []

    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!
