Review of Stovax Brunel 2cb stove

cover plate problems

3 years ago

I don''t know if any one else has had this problem but the back cover plate has fallen off twice in the six years we have had the stove. When it first happened we had it put back which involved stripping out the inside,( which saved having to remove the complete stove) all completed, then fell of again this year, tried to remove baffle inside to gain access bolts sheared with rust.

Stove now will be dumped and I say never again.

Stove expert replied: The back cover plates should twist and lock into place and if they fall off can usually be repositioned with fire cement or heat proof silicone. If the failure is due to rust of locating lugs then replacements can be purchased. A shame to discard a 6 year old stove.
