Review of The Barrington 6kw

Chesneys barrington


I was told they were the best on the market, I don't think so! Trouble from the first week, paint flaking off flue and now off the top of the stove. Top baffle plate as bowed, so need a new one! Recommend you steer clear, buy another make! you can't get spares from Chesneys, they don't want to know you, they just say see your loacl supplier> NIGHTMARE STEER WELL CLEAR!

Stove expert replied: Paint peeling off flue, did this get touched up after installation as unless the original paint had cured (during the first few firings) then over spraying will cause the paint to peel! The top baffle bowing, how old is the stove? This may be caused by an over drawing flue or by over firing the stove and may not be a manufacturing fault. Many manufacturers do not offer a direct spares replacement service and would expect their dealers to supply.
