Stratford TF 50 stove
The Stratford TF 50 stove is a boiler model with a built in boiler of 45000btu -
as these Stratford stoves send most of the heat to the boiler & central heating system -
some people put a radiator in the same room as the stove - to assume enough heat in the middle of winter.
It can be advisable to provide good air flow to the stove in the summer time if you do not use the stove -
to avoid rusting.
This stove has now been replaced with the Aarrow Ecoburn 20
You do this by suplying extra air ventilation by leaving the door open or
lowering the baffle plate.

Stove expert replied: The trim on these stves is there to hold the glass clips in place. If it shrinks then the stove may have been over-fired at some point. They are in my usual experience a good boiler stove but of course this appears to be an unfortunate experience. Would suggest getting a new trim otherwise the glass gasket can fail which would lead to further complications.

Good stove. Only problem has been with the airflow dial which broke and needed to be replaced. The parts are not cheap! Otherwise a very satisfactory item.
Good stove. I have found the best fuel to use is Anthracite Stovesse although getting hold of it now is difficult. The stove is good on wood but needs to burn flat out to get the best from the... [ read more ]
