    Stove expert replied: If this is still under warranty go back to your supplier and installer to ask that this is dealt with under warranty, that is providing all aspects of the installation have been adhered to.

  • Waste of money

    Ella Jabroo one year ago

    This is a greedy stove, burns everything really fast, you don't get the control like you would with other stoves, I had my chimney looked at etc, actually not really high draw if anything far... []

    Stove expert replied: Having had the chimney checked and not found this to be the cause, the important thing is to make sure that the wood used is dry and seasoned and leave the top control open as this should assist in keeping the glass clean.

  • Dangerous

    Luke Allan 3 years ago

    I bought the tiger log burner a year ago and tonight for the 3rd time the door has fallen off and I have burnt myself badly. I can't find any contact information for them could anyone help

    Stove expert replied: You should go back to the supplier so that they can follow this up with the UK distributor. There may be something that can be done with the hinge to prevent a similar occurrence, Do check that the door is fully located on the hinges and do this regularly as a preventative measure until you have made contact with the above in the meantime.

  • is it a multifuel burner?

    Deborah Lewis 3 years ago

    I have had my Tiger burner (looks exactly like the standard model, cant find a model number on it)f or about 8 years. Can I burn coal on it? I think I remember the sales guy''s where I bought... []

    Stove expert replied: If you have a grate in the stove then smokeless fuels should be able to be used on the appliance, household coal is not recommended as it burns with a long flame and is a dirty fuel which affects the airwash system.

  • smoke coming from top of stove

    Liz Mcdowell 4 years ago

    Bought this stove December 2016, nothing but trouble. Door handle kept falling off, had that replaced. Fire brick at the back of the stove has cracked and the icing on the cake now is smoke... []

    Stove expert replied: The liners are not covered by warranty but providing they are just cracked and staying in place to protect the metal of the stove they are safe to use. Regarding the smoke, as this has just started happening, do check that the flue way is clear by dropping the throat plate as debris may have fallen down the chimney and stopped the passage of gases. Have you an air brick in the room? It could be due to weather conditions not giving the lift away from the firebox on initial lighting, this is not clear from what has been posted. Does the smoke improve once the flue has become warm? Please make sure that you only use dry seasoned wood that has a moisture content of less than 20%. The key to any stove and its performance is the installation and in this instance the installer had not done what is expected, glad to hear all is well now.

  • Non controllable stoves

    Carol Lowey 4 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... []

    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.

    Stove expert replied: There are only a few parts that can cause problems and the thermocouple is the normal culprit.. Perhaps get in touch with the UK distributor if the Gas Safe Engineer is having problems disposing what part is faulty.
