I thought the temperature wouldn't be enough but saw that it worked from 110C, so got one. Sure enough, it started to spin at 96C the first time. The second time, it was 116C. If you give it... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: As there appears to be considerable heat in the surrounding materials was this installed as per the manufacturers instructions? Inset stoves often require insulating around the inset box so that the generated heat radiates from the stove front and not from the sides.

Stove expert replied: Insulating an insert stove well will make all the difference to the heat generated. Good review.

I don''t know is it says anywhere about which way to lay logs in a stove but with this model, it pays to lay logs across the stove with the thickest at the front. This must slow the burn and... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: In most stoves the wood burns best when placed side to side rather than back to front.
To get the best out of this stove, buy a cheap Apollo oven thermometer and sit it on top of the stove. You should be aiming to get a reading approaching 200f. The metal temperature will actually... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: A stove thermometer is the best solution to insure that you are using the stove efficiently, it has the markings to guide you for the correct operating temperatures. This is a problem though when an inset stove is being used, seems the customer has found his own alternative.
I just love my newly installed Stockton 7.It brings a warmth and ambience to the living room which,in the winter months was uninviting and very cold. It takes the chill off the room very quickly... [ read more ]
This stove is pathetic. I have done an experiment with a thermometer. Temperature of (what is supposed to be a small) room rose from 14C to 17.5C after 4 hours of vigorous burning. Like other... [ read more ]
I have had this stove for about 5 years now. I have tried everything to get to get it to work like other stoves I have seen working. I have made sure the chimney it set up correctly and spent £1000 of a liner even though I was told it was not really needed. I have had the chimney cleaned and a number of stove specialists check it out, each who tell me something different. My wood is very well seasoned. Some kept indoors and dry for well over a year. I have refitted the glass robe and door rope 3 times and done it well I have to say. Stovax are poor when it comes to customer support. Even though I have been a 'nice guy'. The stove continues to eat up logs, there is minimal air control and the glass always gets browned up unless I have the stove on full burn. Therefore, this stove is very poor value, the manufacture delivers poor service as do their outlets I have found. ... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Have you an airbrick in the room? Perhaps there is not enough draw !! What height is the chimney and was the liner insulated to keep the gases warm?

Stove expert replied: Has the chimney been lined? If the stove is working hard and not producing much heat then quite possibly the heat is going up the chimney or into the void that has been filled (may not be filled enough though). Further investigation recommended.
Performance wise it's a bit disappointing . Can be a bit slow to get going. Once fire is established its very hot in firebox! Problem is not enough heat transfers into room when using air wash... [ read more ]
