Review of Tiger Plus stove

lovely stove but....

Tracy Irvine 11 years ago

We have been very pleased with our Tiger stove for the last month or so that we have had it, but unfortunately the glass has cracked, it started as just a little crack and has now gone right across the window, spoiling the look of the stove completely. We have no idea why this has happened and are looking into replacing it, but wonder if it will just happen again.

The stove is great to use and really heats up the downstairs of our house, so very rarely use the central heating.

Stove expert replied: Glass cracking can be caused by a few reasons: knocking when loading the stove, fixings being too tight and not allowing movement, possibly a faulty piece, as it is not covered by warranty a replacement will need to be purchased. Be careful that air is not drawn in through the gap allowing the stove to over-draw, I would siggest getting a replacement sooner rather than later.
