Review of Stovax Riva 55 stove

Drafter not working

Carmel Sullivan 4 years ago

Stovax riva 55b installed last year, fantastic and well pleased with it, had it fully cleaned out and set for this year and yesterday when I went to light it the drafter wouldn't work, checked for blockages and also checked from top of chimney, everything clear, any idea why this is happening, the fitter is away all this week.

Stove expert replied: If you mean the air control, was this taken out or changed in any way when the maintenance was undertaken. Go back to the manual, there may be more in there or contact the supplier for technical assistance.
