    Trevor Wainwright 2 years ago

    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... []

    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.

  • Stovax 7 inset final polish.

    Trevor Wainwright 2 years ago

    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... []

    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... []

    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.

  • Stockton 7 - Don't buy

    Paul Peters 6 years ago

    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. ... []

    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?

  • Open fire replacement

    Trevor Wainwright 8 years ago

    Decided to have a stove fitted to make it safer and stop the carpet from being burned. Was told that the inset was the only one that would fit and went ahead with it just over a year ago.... []

    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.
