  • Mark 1 intrepid.

    Martin Cullwick 3 years ago

    The ash pan is fairly small for the size of burner. The fins in the casting under the ash pan collect ash, and virtually impossible to remove without using a hoover. Not popular with the wife... []

    Stove expert replied: The poor draw on this installation may be due to the flue not having an effective draw being that it is in an extension (possibly single storey so short flue length overall) and there is another working flue in the property which may have a better flue draw affecting this stove. Further investigation is recommended into this as there may be options to assist which would improve the stoves performance.

    Clive Baker 3 years ago

    We had a Vermont Castings resolute multi-fuel stove for about 25 years which needed replacing. The Intrepid II looks smaller but has more room inside for logs. The stove arrived very quickly... []

  • Mk1 Intrepid still going strong

    Philip Greenway 4 years ago

    I''ve had this stove for 20 years and it is as good as new. Being a Mk1 it has semi solid doors, so it isn''t quite as good looking as the later models, but it still performs well. It is solidly... []

  • Enamel peeling off

    5 years ago

    The stove was present when I moved into the house in 2008, I think it was newly installed. It has not had too much use, I would reckon at the maximum 20 times per year if that. I note today... []

    Stove expert replied: Enamel is normally a robust finish so for it to be coming off seems rather strange but the stove is now at least 8years old. Have you had any building work in the property (rendering / plastering) both of these have high water content which could affect a stove and its condition. There will be touch up paint that can be purchased to cover the places that are affected.

  • Will I have to buy a completely new stove?

    Rebecca Hanson 6 years ago

    My Intrepid II is about 10 years old. It's gas. The switch (part no 0580869) has gone. Does anyone know how to get one or will I have to chuck out the entire stove?

    Stove expert replied: There are many spares companies that should be able to help you online, hopefully you can get a replacement.

  • Flue Access Problem

    Colin Keane 7 years ago

    Old installation that my sweep says needs a flue access hatch to allow him to sweep it out. Dont know how to go about this

    Stove expert replied: Get an installer in to disconnect stove and add a flue with access point in it. The sweep may know of someone who should be Hetas Approved.

  • finding service engineer impossible!r

    Our stove needs spare parts/service/repair to damper and air inlet and we can find no engineers in Notts/Derbys/Leics that are able to do this. Several retailers sell Vermont but it appears... []

    Stove expert replied: Contact Hetas as they have a list of Engineers who will undertake maintenance.
