Parkray consort slimline 5

We have had the stove now for 3 weeks. We love the detail of the stove as we spent a long time researching for it. The last couple of days the stove flu pipe coming from the stove has started to make some loud annoying cracking sounds. I do know that metal expands and retracts but is this normal ? We are just burning wood at present and doing whatever the instructions say.

The noise is so loud at times it puts you off watching TV.

Stove expert replied: I would suggest getting the installer back as this does seem strange, it is not normal for the flue to make a noise.
