    Stove expert replied: It sounds very much like you have an over-drawing flue system that is sucking the heat out of the stove before it can heat the body and radiate into the room. I would suggest you contact the installer to see if a damper or stabnilizer can be fitted which will given you better control and should impriove the heat out put into the room. I doubt the problem is the stove!

    Stove expert replied: it sounds like a batch of cast iron doors might have either been a little dusty or perhaps damp when they were painted. Various companies to provide 'white labelled' stove paint - there are in fact only a few manufacturers of stove paint but many more brands.
