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.

  • Don’t buy Stovax

    Barbara Snell 2 months ago

    Bought a Stovax 5, so far the glass door has fallen out twice and the rope strip has peeled off all this in less than a year. We paid 4000 for the stove, hearth installation etc and now can... []

    Stove expert replied: Your warranty should be dealt with by your stove supplier initially and not direct with Stovax, your contract is with the company that you paid to supply it. It is unusual for glass to fall out - has the gasket failed? Was the stove fully controllable when first installed or has it always been busy? The rope seal is classed as consumable and may only require glue to reattach it. Do get the installation fully checked as there may be an issue with the flue draw that is affecting the way it is performing and if the draw is excessive will lead to premature failure of components.

  • Can''t Control the Burn for Love Nor Money

    David Thorp 7 months ago

    Installed in September 2019 and whilst the company installing did a good job on the fireplace and ''were'' extremely helpful at first, the stove itself (wood burner not multi) just couldn''t... []

    Stove expert replied: It does sound like you have very strong draw where you are David. You're right you need to select the stove and design the chimney system based on the characteristics at each site - but I wouldn't so much blame the stove here as the system designer. With any stove it's also not always clear how the system will perform until the installation is done - conditions and chimney draw may have been fine when the site visit was done and then later changed.

  • Cold and quick burning

    Alex Ferguson 3 years 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 3 years 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 3 years 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.

    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 4 years 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!
