  • Not happy with this stove

    Aine Kelly last month

    Bought this stove in 2017 and was never happy with it from day 1. It heats the water ok but no heat to the room. I have to keep it stocked up with fuel continuously and still no heat. You have... []

    Stove expert replied: This boiler stove can produce between 2 and 6kW's in to the room, was this checked to ensure that it meets the rooms heating requirements that it is installed in? The boiler says that it can produce upto 18kW's to water, again were the calculations undertaken to ensure that this is adequate for the domestic hot water and radiator circuit? You say you have 10 radiators, these can range from small single panel to large double panelled radiators and their demands vary greatly in what heat is required etc; It is essential that prior to purchasing any boiler the heat load calculations are undertaken by a suitable heating engineer.

    Is leaking inside the firebox at the back , typically behind a cover which can't be removed so it's very unlikely I can have it repaired ,,, 7 year warranty,,,,, Stratford did not want to know... []

    Stove expert replied: The seven year warranty on these stoves works well providing that the conditions have been met that the manufacturer states when a new boiler stove is supplied. Their warranty statement is "As long as your stove has been purchased from one of our authorised dealers and installed following regulations governing the fitting of wood-burning and solid fuel appliances in the country of installation, our guarantee comes as standard." Should you make a claim the manufacturer will send details of what information is required, which should be quite straight forward, and then the claim can proceed. Without further information from the above, it would appear that something has not complied fully with the manufacturers requirements for this claim to be able to proceed..

    I've had solid fuel boilers for the last 35 years. My last boiler was a Coalbrookedale Severn I didn't think I would get another boiler good enough to replace it I had to choose another model... []

    Stove expert replied: Do make sure that you use the stove effectively and not leave it slumbering for long periods (short periods of fast burn are recommended throughout the day). Was the stoves' output calculated by a Heating Engineer to suit your requirements as leaving the back door open because it is too hot is concerning. When considering a stove purchase do buy a stove that matches your needs and not one that is too large, having a stove shut down all the time can lead to flue problems.

  • Great Stove

    G.swarbrick 7 years ago

    On the whole I am very pleased with this stove. Heat output is more than enough to supply central heating and hot water to 10 radiators in a 3 bedroom 1960s semi detached house. Build quality... []

    Stove expert replied: The thermostat probe used to be slotted into a pocket on the back of their boiler stoves and the new location is meant to be an improvement on sensing water temperature in the new style boiler jacket. I would expect a stove to need attention at least twice every day to remove ash and for refuelling, if left for longer periods they tend to choke themselves. The thermostat clearance can be checked, and instructions should be in the manual, access through the plate on the left hand side of the stove.

  • Stafford Stove

    Denis McDonagh 7 years ago

    Overall a very good and efficient stove. I would like a flue damper on this stove as I live in an area with high winds. Is this possible ?.

    Stove expert replied: A flue damper can be added to an existing flue system providing there is enough single skin flue to accommodate it, ideally in a top flue installation as this will make it easier to operate.
