oisin stove

I purchased aan oisin stove 2 months ago. All went well until yesterday flames started coming out at back of stove. I phoned the centre who installed it for me and was told fire cement obviously came out where stove was joined to flue, and they said this was very common. If I hadn't been in the house it would have gone up in flames. Surely if the stove was connected properly this wouldn't have happened . I paid 2000 euro for cost of stove and installation.

Stove expert replied: Surprising and alarming comments as the flue connection should be sealed in place and after 2 months should not be causing a problem, most spigots on a stove twist and lock into place and the sealant is there as back up. This is an installation issue and not directly related to the stove and its quality and performance.
