Review of Stovax Huntington 40 stove

Would not reccomend this one

Peter Clay 3 years ago

I have the multifuel version. The main problem is to run it slowly. I never use phurnacite or coal for fear of overheating. I even worry with small dry wood. The riddle mechanism always clogs up. The glass never stays clean. The handle on the door has broken twice. Not recommended!

Stove expert replied: The glass will not stay clean if you are closing down the air wash control. If the stove is always busy and will not shut down do have a flue draw test done to see if a damper or flue stabilizer is required.
