Have had this stove for 5yrs. Already had to call someone out few yrs ago for persistent problem of difficulty igniting then having to hold the ignition knob in for up to a minute before releasing... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Has the stove been serviced by a gas engineer? This is suggested every year and it may be that the igniter needs replacing.
We have recently moved into a house with a Tiger Classic burner. We had the chimney swept last week in preparation for the winter and our first lighting of the burner, and were informed that... [ read more ]
We bought our Tiger Classic back in 2009 and it was the first wood burner we've ever owned and it's more than paid for it self by bringing down our duel fuel bills over the years until this... [ read more ]
We bought our house with a Tiger log burning stove already installed. It seems to work really well and we've had no problems. However, I was recently trying to identify which model we have and... [ read more ]
We've had our Tiger coal-effect gas stove for almost two years and, most of the time, it works very well. However, it has recently begun to malfunction. Ignition can be difficulty, there sometimes... [ read more ]
I purchased a Tiger Gas Stove and followed the instruction to put the stove together. Secured the flue collar to the top of the fire but the 5" flue pipe provided is too small and a 6" flue... [ read more ]
Have had this for over two years and very pleased with it. However the airwash handle is now stuck and will not move. It has always been difficult to operate - very stiff to move. Mine is... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Try releasing agent when the stove is cold, is it stuck open or closed? On Defra models the airwash will always be partially open to dilute the flue gases.
I was reluctant to give up my living flame gas fire, but it had started to show many signs of wear and we were having the room completely stripped of plaster and the ceilings replaced. After... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Crazing that creeps across the glass (like a spiders web effect) is due to the stove not being operated at a high enough temperature (keeping the airwash shut down too much) the gasses stay in the firebox too long and attack the glass. The glass integrity is not compromised but the crazing can't be removed. Try leaving the air wash open more and give the stove short periods of fast burn (no more than 15-20mins max) with all controls fully open.
I have had my tiger for about 4 years now, flue is lined and control is good. I have tried various types of fuel mixes and woods the best I have found is kiln dried ash very hot and slow burning... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: This will be a trade secret and I would suggest purchasing through a reputable online spares company to insure you get it right, you can ruin a stove by using the wring rope!
I've had one of these stoves for a few years now with no problems whatsoever. Until now that is when for some reason the door is locked shut. I did have it pretty hot with coal last night but other than that nothing different The handle is working and moving the catch inside but it won't give at all - also I don't think its dropped at the hinges. Now contemplating smashing the glass as a last resort. Help!... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: As you can see the latch moving inside it seems strange that this is not releasing the door. Can you get into the fire box by disconnecting the flue to see if you can release the door rather than smashing the glass?
