Stove expert replied: Expansion noise is not common but nevertheless annoying. Are you certain that it is the stove that is the cause and not the flue system? Have you made the supplier aware? Ratings reflect this issue.

Had this stove fitted in August but on refueling the smoke spills out of the fire and fills the house. Have changed to kiln dried wood, changed cowl and increased the height of the flue with... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Have you an airbrick or room ventilator fitted? Does the flue draw match the requirements of the manufacturer? Is there another chimney in the property? This is likely to be a installation / flue problem so would recommend further investigation. Make sure that you have a carbon monoxide alarm fitted. There is usually a reason why the flue gases are not lifting away from the firebox, not enough air in the room, not enough draw in the flue. Another chimney in the property is stronger that the one being used which is giving a negative pressure preventing the gases from rising quickly when the door is open. If nothing is found to be at fault, a flue fan may be the best way forward, there are several options on the market.
Having bought a number of log burners the Salisbury is proving one of my regrettable buys. Problems with the damper , it seems to expand when hot and gets jerky, the removal of ashes and having... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Do check that the wood being burnt has a moisture content of less than 20% and keep the air controls open so that the glass can stay clean. Perhaps the damper arm / hole location gets too tight when hot and a slight modification could improve this operation, further investigation is recommended. All stoves will require ash removal - you do not say what the actual problem is with this on the Salisbury stove!
I did my research as well and in the end you just need to make your decision, glad I went for the Salisbury. I don't understand the few negative comments here, maybe to do with your installation... [ read more ]

Stove expert replied: Do take note that operating a stove at this temperature is not recommended, short periods of fast burn (20 mins max) is recommended as prolonged periods of high temperatures (that exceed normal usage) will expose internal components to higher temperatures than normal and can lead to distortion or a shortening of their life. The curing of the paint should not require the high temperature burn as stated in this review.
We have a Hunter Hawk 4kw stove in our kitchen. We wanted to progress from an open fire in our lounge to a new wood burner and after much research chose and purchased a Salisbury 5 wood burner... [ read more ]
I only bought our Chesney Salisbury because we were so impressed by the sales team who assured us of the quality and performance of these stoves. They installed it and the installation cost almost as much as the stove itself. This is our 7th wood burning stove over 25 years, so we know how a good fire should perform and I am very sorry to say that this stove under-performs very significantly. I find I am using more wood than I did with my previous fire which was more than double the size! The glass door fogs up unless the slide is kept well open. The lack of an ash pan is a serious oversight as the mess this fire makes is quite amazing. The push in and out slide adjusting control is jerky in operation and is hence very difficult to regulate. All in all, I would love to install another stove but having spent close on £1,900 for the stove and installation, I simply don't have enough money left to burn!!!!... [ read more ]
