I love the look of this stove works well with smokeless but I have problems burning wood as there is no top airwash control that I can see this is my 1 st stove apart from the looks I am disappointed... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: CONTROL How fast the fire burns depends on how much air reaches the fuel. Move the air control slide below the window to the right for highest output, to the left for 'low'. Fuels which produce their own oxygen (such as some types of wood) or those which give off large amounts of volatile gas will be more difficult to control. ECONOMY Surprisingly, best economy is achieved with the firebox very full and the air control set to 'low'. The fire will burn much more efficiently than if you use 'little and often' and will need less frequent refuelling. Try alternative woods to see if it makes a difference as this often solves the problem.
my tiger gets hot but it does not genarate hardly any heat in the room. I've tried using every type of fuel but nothing seems to work unless I have the door open. I've had a flue liner fitted... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Clearances to non-combustible materials should be 150mm either side and back with 300mm above so if you only have 125mm (5") above will certainly restrict the air flow of the heat produced. It may be worth looking at bringing the stove forward so that the heat generated can radiate freely into the room. The hearth may well need to be extended.
I bought my tiger stove 3 years ago. I can honestly say it is probably the best thing I have ever bought. It bought our fuel bill down from £150 a month to £45 a month. My husband... [ read more ]
Have this stove for a weekend now. Good heat and it looks well, however on a very windy night there was a terrible banging from the chimney - is this normal? The control for turning up and down the heat isn't great either. Looks very well thorough. I'm not sure whether I can use smokeless coal or not though, it said it was wood burning rather than multi fuel.. Is smokeless coal still ok. Expert review greatly appreciated ... Thanks ...

Stove expert replied: Tiger stoves are multifuel, the grate allows for smokeless fuel and wood to be used on it. I would recommend that you get the flue checked as you should not get any banging on windy days, seems strange and investigation into what makes this noise should be undertaken.
This is the first stove we have purchased and I have to say that it is very good value for money. I did lots of research before I finally decided on this stove and went for this one because... [ read more ]
We have had the tiger classic in now for 2 years.Last winter was fab, I live in a 4 bed house with all doors open it heats my home well. The airwash, may as well not have one, the best way to... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Coal should not be used on a stove and this maybe why your glass gets black, smokeless fuel only recommended. Also full fast burn should only be 15 - 20 mins as if left longer the stove could get too hot and cause problems with the internal components and can lead to cracking of the casting.
Bought this stove last year and use it as our main source of heating in winter, this stove is fantastic it is easy to light and burns well. Overnight burning can easily be achieved using smokeless... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Routine maintenance checks: door seals, glass gaskets, chimney sweeping etc will help to keep the stove working effectively. Let out monthly to check flue way is clear.
I have now had my Tiger for 4 years. We bought it for £199, knowing very little about stoves and it seemed like a good deal. We run it 24 /7 throughout the winter months. Running on... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Replace the firebricks if they do not stay in place or become thin thus not protecting the metal of the stove. Good review.
Have a Tiger stoves fitted in the open plan living room/kitchen (approx 12 x 24),Tend to light the fire with smokeless coal and then add wood once fire established. Heat output: takes a while... [ read more ]
Had this tiger stove for 3 years, serviced reg, on replacing the door rope,the bolts that hold the glass in place snapped when I tried to undo them, the door needs replacing at great cost,also... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Spares are always expensive on any stove by comparison to the initial price paid. Door clip screws can and do sheer off, especially if you do not apply something like WD40 for a good long while before attempting to undo them. I would have drilled them out and retapped the hole rather than buying a whole new door.
