Stovax Stockton 5 stove

The Stovax Stockton 5 stove is available as a wood or multi fuel version.

This stove does not need an air vent into the room as the output is not above 5kw.

The flue can exit from the top or the back of the stove.

The Stockton range is also available in coloured finishes - but the colours are not bright -

more a hint of colour.

  • Cold and quick burning

    Alex Ferguson 4 months ago

    We had this stove installed in October. Following great recommendations... would not recommend now having used it. It seems to burn through good seasoned hardwood very quickly and let''s off... []

    Stove expert replied: If a stove is working hard and producing little heat it usually means that the stove draw is excessive and there will be little control. The controls will struggle to make any difference as the air is being pulled through the stove up the flue before it can heat the body and radiate into the room. I would suggest further investigations to eliminate the stove being at fault when it sounds very much that the flue is the problem.

  • Stove burns slower with door open

    Graham Watts 4 months ago

    Have had our Stockton 5 for 10 years and use it as a back up on cold days. It tends to burn wood fiercely if door closed and the airwash control has no effect on rate of burn. We control rate... []

    Stove expert replied: Has this always been the case or only a recent change? Have the rope seals been replaced? If this has been doing this since day one, then the likely hood is the flue has an excessive draw and hence the lack of control being experienced. If a damper or stabilizer is added to the flue system then this usually allows better control, I would suggest contacting a Hetas Engineer / flue specialist if you think this is what is being experienced.

  • Disappointed with the heat this gives off - or lack of!

    Andrew Andydandlauren@gmail.com 4 months ago

    We have recently had this stove installed and although aesthetically it looks very nice, especially when the fire is lit up and roaring away, we are very disappointed with the amount of heat... []

    Stove expert replied: A 5kW stove would normally be suitable for a small to medium space and depending on the area you are wanting to heat is unlikely to be man enough to heat the bottom floor of a house. Have you enough clearance around the stove to allow the heated air to radiate freely? What fuel are you using? Is the chimney lined? What is the size of the room? What is the flue draw measurement? There are many factors that affect a stoves performance and the stove may be performing well but not big enough for the space. Further investigation is recommended.

  • So far so good

    David Parker one year ago

    We had two of these stoves fitted in our downstairs living rooms at the beginning of November 2016. Having used them extensively over the winter that followed it seems appropriate to review... []

    Stove expert replied: If you are only planning on burning wood you may find that a wood conversion kit would improve the performance, downside is you will need to remove the ash using a fireside tool.

  • Stovax Stockton 5 ....... a waste of time and money!!!

    Sarah Curtin one year ago

    Had our stovax Stockton 5 fitted straight after Christmas and had a problem getting heat out of it so the salesperson came round with some wood of their own as they said ours must be too damp... []

    Stove expert replied: If the stove is producing the heat that the manual states then this heat has to be going somewhere! What size is the room that the stove is in? Is this the correct output stove for the space you are wishing to heat? What clearance have you round the stove? Is the flue lined? Does the stove respond when you shut the air controls down? There will be a reason for the lack of heat you are expecting so further investigation of the installation and stove size is recommended, this may not be the fault of the stove!

  • Stovax 5 Multifuel

    one year ago

    Hi. Can anyone advise how to slow down the burn on my Stovax. I push in the lever underneath the stove. Close the airwash but it still burns too quickly. Is it too ambitious of me to want... []

    Stove expert replied: Is the stove a smoke exempt model? If not and all vents are closed and still the stove works hard then please check all seals round the door and glass. (Shut a piece of A4 paper between the body of the stove and to door (when cold) if the paper can be pulled out then the rope seal needs replacing or the door needs adjustment to closed more tightly. The flue draw might be excessive and control of this can be achieved by adding a flue damper or stabilizer to the flue system, you should discuss this with your installer who should be able to undertake a flue draw test to ascertain if this is the cause of lack of control. If the stove has had the defra kit added then this will prevent the top air control from shutting fully and it is unlikely that an overnight burn will be achieved. The bleed of air allows the flue gases to be diluted so that this complies with the current smoke exempt requirements.

    We had this stove installed this year. It takes a bit of getting used to as it has quite a small combustion chamber. This makes it quite sensitive to changes in air settings. Once you get used... []
