for wood which some friends of ours have. They get a better performance from theirs because the air vents over the top off the wood rather than from underneath.
Stove expert replied: absolutely right - wood burns best on a bed of ash with it's supply of air from above. If you are only going to burn wood then opt for a dedicated woodburner as this reviewer suggests. The firebox will be bigger too as there will be no grate which means you can fit bigger lengths in.

thing that broke was a glass (my fault!) and it was very easy to replace although the nuts needed to be sprayed with easing oil overnight before they would undo.
it from logs to all types of coal, to peat, shoes, paper etc. We wouldn't be with out it. It makes our house a home! It gives out a feeling of being warm and safe!
Stove expert replied: Stick to stove known fuel types, shoes may effect the stove as materials like rubber, glues etc are not recommended and may cause problems!
. It warms the whole flat beautifully.There is one fault, it smokes a lot, we cannot rectify this.
Stove expert replied: If the smoke occurrs just when refuelling try opening the door very slowly, check that you have enough air in the room or fit an anti-down draught cowl. Worth investigating further.
using the fire as I am fortunate that the fire has not already burst. He said the stove could be removed, and the area welded, but at best I would get another year, As you can imagine, I am not happy.
Stove expert replied: corrosion to the boiler is a real classic with boiler stoves, especially where the heat output to water of the boiler stove is undersized compared to the system it connects to. This means that it takes a very long time for the water to come up to temp (if it ever does) if the stove is the only heat source. This increases condensation on the boiler and hence corrosion. Fitting a load valve or load unit would do a lot to reduce this from happening as the load valve or unit gets the boiler up to running temperatures quickly and then keeps it there. This is not necessarily a problem with the stove - it is probably more likely due to the installation in terms of the plumbing. Running the stove briskly and not slumber burning it would also help.
