Review of Stovax Huntington 40 stove

Honest rating

Bernard Walsh 6 years ago

Top casting plate where the flue pipe exits the top of the stove of the Multi-fuel Huntingdon 40 is weak and poorly cast.

I have replaced 2 tops and now require the part replaced again at 246 pounds sterling.

Replacement parts are very expensive.

The glass, 3 firebrick inserts and top will cost the price of a new stove in Ireland.

Googled prices 882.52 or 1115.00 euros

Stove expert replied: Spares are expensive compared to the original stove price if several are required as in normal circumstances replacement parts are not required often. Have you a stove thermometer as this may well help to insure that you are using the stove at the optimum temperature so that longevity of the product can be achieved?
