    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.

    I bought oen of these stoves a couple of months ago. After 2 days paint on top flaked off. Supplier sanded down and re-sprayed. Still flaked off. Replacement sent from manufacturer - taken
    out box and stove was damaged. Waited 5 more weeks for a replacement. Paint on this one alo flaked off after less than 24h. Will never buy again and still left to sort problem out with the supplier. Supplier service has been ok. Not their fault they have been sent faulty goods. I am lost as to where we go from here.

    I purchased a stove last year. The thermostat has never worked well. I've sent it back a few times now, and it is still not working. Every time I turn the thermostat it keeps flipping over.
    I can not leave my fire on when I leave the house as it just dies. Would definitely not recommend parkray for this reason.

  • Fantastic stove fiddly ash pan.

    Bev 6 years ago

    The stove itself has a tremendous heat output and takes a really big log. You can boil a kettle on it if you have the flat top. I have even cooked on it during a power cut. Overall I am very
    satisfied and I would recommend it. However it does have some design faults. The ash pan is rather difficult to remove as it has a lip so you have to lift and manoeuvre the ash pan over the top of it. The lip also makes cleaning out the ash pan cavity quite fiddly. The handles do get hot, but I use a pair of welders gloves so that isn't really a problem. If it wasn't for the lip where the ash pan is located I would have scored it a 5 all round.

    Space for taking ash pan out too small very dangerous for elderly lady and does not allow enough air through when lit. Would like you to ring back to discuss matter

    Stove expert replied: Seems a sorry tale for this model. Customer is now purchasing a thermostat to see if this helps, also advised to check if flue lined as this may be allowing the gases to cool too quickly! Have suggested contacting Parkray direct as supplier seems very unhelpful.
