Review of Tiger stove

Non controllable stoves

Carol Lowey 3 years ago

I have 2 Tiger multi fuel burners, both have no control and whistle through the wood and coal resulting in white hot heat, and burning out after a few hours. Both are only 2 years old. I can shut them both off and still have no control. Both have had their seals replaced but makes no difference. I wish I had never purchased these burners, as others who have chosen well can keep theirs burning for hours, and overnight.

Stove expert replied: Are they the Defra Approved models or standard model where the air control can shut fully. If you are not able to shut a stove down then you should get a flue draw test taken to ensure that it meets the manufacturers desired draw, if it is too high then the stove will burn hard not producing much heat for the amount of fuel being used. This is not the fault of the stove but an installation issue.
