Review of Parkray Consort 15

consort 15 boiler model

Graham Hall 4 years ago

ash pan too small and difficult to remove, works fine when all air vents open but ash soon clogs up on the low settings which results in excessive use of riddling, handles get hot so have to use a glove.

Stove expert replied: A stove should not be slumbering for long periods as this will only lead to clogging up. Most stove handles do get hot and gloves are normally supplied with the stove by the manufacturer. Ash pans need to be emptied regularly and should not be allowed to become full as this can lead to a shortening of the grate.
