the fire goes off. You are often there an hour until you get the fire lit and to get it to stay on. Gas engineer says it's a common fault now he's not answering my messages. What can I do??????
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.
from it. Would have been better spending a little extra and making a huge saving over the years with wood. Also another small gripe, it said self cleaning glass, black within a few hours use, my mums new non tiger stove has this feature and doesn't smog up at all, she burns a quarter of the wood I do, and has no difficulty keeping the fire in all night even though her stove is not bigger.
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.
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.
it saying it was wood only? Would that be right? It works perfectly, but just thinking coal would burn slower.
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.
you must maintain the item to get the best out of it.
Stove expert replied: No truer word spoken, look after the stove and it will look after you!
coming from the front top near door. Checked the door seal that is ok. it was great for about 4 weeks then the problems started.Further update from customer:got the tiger sorted out now, the installer took it out again and the top of the fire was not sealed properly. The rope in the top was not in correctly. Also top of our chimney was slightly blocked. Problems solved. Running like a train.
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.
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.
had 1 back firebrick. All in all we couldn't be without it, we only burn smokeless fuel and wood on ours but we get great control over the heat, we keep the top control over to the right and start the bottom control to the right then once it is going well move it to the left. We can easily keep it going overnight. The dogs love it as well!!
wouldn't light unless you kept the button pressed for over a minute. Changed the thermocouple, still gave problems, now having to change the tap assembly. No gas engineer wants to go near it, those who do cannot give a definitive diagnosis to the fault, and play guess work. I'm at my wits end and am considering getting rid of it!
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.
