  • Avoid Waterford Stanley

    WILLIAM BRADLEY one year ago

    Just about to rip out a Waterford Stanley Range Cooker. Hasnt been lit more than 25 times. Parts have burned through. Smoke everywhere. Cannot get anyone to take a look! After sales service... []

    Stove expert replied: Have you been back to the supplier? Was this installed by a Hetas Engineer who is another point of contact regarding problems experienced. You have not indicated the age of the appliance. If the stove has been overdrawing then parts can fail prematurely. A smoking flue requires further investigation and is not the fault of the stove but down to the installation. I would suggest finding a Hetas Engineer who would survey the installation before removing it which seems a drastic step unless all other avenues have been exhausted.

    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... []

    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.

  • Waterford Shire (now Oisin) stove

    Sillykitty B 7 years ago

    Had this multi-fuel stove installed 10 years ago and, until last year, it was brilliant. Then our chimney sweep pointed out that the top baffle had corroded badly and recommended replacement... []

    Stove expert replied: These problems can happen on a steel stove as well as on cast iron models. Wood that has a moisture content of less than 20% should only be used on a stove. Rountin maintainence should be carried out to check all aspects of the installation and may have prevented the flue from dropping off.

  • Nice Stove but suited to a smaller, or well insulated area

    ATC 9 years ago

    Have had the Stanley Oisin in for a couple of days now.I have burnt peat, dry and wet wood and high quality, homefire coal.The stove is listed, generally, from 5 to 6.4kw. Before buying, not... []

    Stove expert replied: Other factors like insulation, open plan areas etc should be considered before purchasing a stove to insure that the stove is powerful enough to heat the space required. The price is low for this stove but if you still require central heating a larger stove which would be more expensive may prove more cost effective. Still every little heat produced will help to cut other fuel costs.
