Stove expert replied: Please make sure that you do not over-draw the stove - can you shut it down if you want it to. If the flue draw is excessive this could lead to damage so worth checking you are able to shut it to a slumbering mode. Great review.

A nice looking stove but have fitted two in the last month. The one thing I will say is the heat to the rads is excellent getting 7-8 roasting hot rads, but absolutely no heat to the room. I... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: It is always good to have a radiator in the room to insure that enough heat is generated as once the water and heating are up to temperature the stove will automatically close controlled by the thermostat.

Stove expert replied: The stove size should be calculated for the size of tank and kW required to satisfy this and the central heating requirements, it will also depend on the quality of fuel being used and the thermostat temperature setting. There should be priority given to the domestic hot water circuit with central heating only coming on when the returning water is up to temperature, do discuss with your heating engineer who may be able to adjust the system to suit..
Overall we're happy, it's a LOT better than the back boiler we had with the open fire, and when our daughter complained that the house was hotter than at any time during her 21 years of existence... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: The thermostat knob on the side of the stove is a sensor that measures the water temperature in the boiler jacket, it operates a flap behind the panel that will open and close automatically depending on what number it is set at. Therefore it will appear to have little resistance at times which is normal depending on the water temperature and the setting of the dial.

Stove expert replied: Did you have the heat load calculations carried out to check that the 12HE boiler is large enough to drive the system you have? The stove will give between 2 - 6kW's of heat to room so the average would be about 4kW. Have you an airbrick in the room? Is the chimney lined? What height is your flue system? The installation as a whole needs to be looked into so that you can ascertain if the stove is performing as expected or if perhaps you are asking it to do too much. The glass should not blacken with the air wash control fully open and hence my question about an airbrick. Was your flue draw checked to ensure it meets the manufacturers requirements. On what number are you keeping your thermostat? Further investigation suggested as it may not be the fault of the stove.
Has anyone had a problem with taking the feds plate out the stove and refitting it after cleaning lugs that the plate sits on ok just cannot get it to fit
Stove expert replied: Have you tried moving them as they sometimes slightly distort and may slot in another position than the one it came out from?
I have to say this wasn't any good for us, we work all day and the only way we can get this stove to produce any heat to the radiators or any hot water is literally to sit in front of it all... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: I am afraid that if the boiler is not being used and has been disconnect then the stove should not be used as a room heater only. This is manufactured to heat water and no modifications can be made to alter this with regard to safety etc.

Stove expert replied: It may be worth trying an alternative smokeless fuel as they do vary greatly, otherwise seems to be working well.
