    I bought one of these stoves in October 2015. It was installed by a registered fitter. Within one winter the handle for the riddle had detached itself. Winter 2016 saw one of the two spin wheels
    jam shut. Now in February 2017, the inside of the fire has completely detached itself and as such renders the stove unusable.

    Stove expert replied: Disappointing comments. The spin wheels have you tried leaving a releasing agent to soak on the internal part to see if this frees its movement? Did it just stick or gradually become harder to turn? Do you mean the internal liners or the actual metal of the stove, if you refer to the liners then normally replacements can be purchased.

    Installed March 2011 in lounge diner 28ftx11ft, heats up very well, when hot enough in lounge then open door for heat to go upstairs.Air vent fitted at rear of stove as before when lounge door open it was drawing cold air across the room, this has now been cured by air vent, we also have placed a small fan at rear of stove to help push out the heat. We burn dry mixed logs and have to refuel every hour, but when using smokeless coal mixed with logs every 3hours, or smokeless on its own 5/6 hours.We had to have a liner fitted as chimney pots were upside down.It is so easy to light we do not keep it in over night, but a couple of mornings we have managed to get it going when late to bed. It's installed in a detached house 25 years old. All in all a very good stove would recommend, but the Little Thurlow was first choice, but had issues with the flue liner.

  • Very Good Stove

    Absolute minefield choosing a stove as there is so much choiceAdvised on this one by the installer and have been more than pleased with its performance, only really burn wood which heats most
    of the house. Has substantially reduced heating oil costs and much better than an open fire which it replacedHighly recommended

    i bought this over six years ago,it has served us well in that time conrolability second too none,it looks great in the croft house in harris. where all weather conditions are thrown at this
    wee gem of a stove it burns peat,wood,&coal with ease the only down side i find the riddle grate is a bit cumbersome but do not find that it detracts to much.i am always glad to see it on a cold winters night.
