to last. All this on a fire used 20 times a year. Fortunately my Woodfire C12 used daily is still going strong.
Stove expert replied: Is the flue draw excessive on the Westfire installation as it is surprising to have cracks in the stoves body which is robust under normal conditions, this may be worth checking before you either update the stove or repair the one you have to prevent similar happening again

Stove expert replied: Nice review and as with most things some parts may need replacing overtime and the log retainer may need replacing after 6 years if the distortion gets too bad.
they have no control over it. It caught me out once and couldn't understand why I couldn't control it.. Realised that it was the ashpan draw wasn't closed properly causing to much air for combustion in the firebox. Hope this helps guys. Replacement bricks are costly as well the the door seal.
Stove expert replied: If you have smoke coming back into the room when you open the door then you need to get an anti downdraught cowl fitted, and possibly provide more air in the room for combustion. This is an installation issue and not caused by the stove, the height of the flue system may also need to be checked.
Stove expert replied: Rust on the inside of the firebox may be due to damp wood or the stove not working hard enough allowing condensation to form. Wood should have less than 20% moisture content for use in a stove. Great to hear that the customer service has been responsive so far.
and money. After all this time my wife and I still marvel at the heat from the fire, the effect of the flames, the ease of use. It is easy to light, just read the instructions and follow them, it's that easy. People make the mistake of thinking they know how to light a fire and try to light a stove, it's completely different. (I was one of those on the first day of ownership). If the fire is slow to start just pull the ashpan out 2 or 3mm with the front door on the fire closed, you'll be amazed at how this feeds the fire. Very little ash from the fire if burning kiln dried logs and heat beyond belief. I cannot sing the praises of this fire highly enough, so much so that 2 of our friends have now fitted the same fire having seen ours. The only negative, the handle gets extremely hot, use the glove provided.
the right, we can see that the distance is smaller at the top than at the bottom. We have changed the seals once already and wondered if the hinges are loosened and misaligned and not making stove airtight, making bottom valves inconsequential! Help.
Stove expert replied: There is a technique to adjusting the door, as there are hinges on both the body of the stove and on the door itself. It would be best to speak to the importer direct, Eurostoves number is 01934750500.
and closed once hot.
Stove expert replied: When components distort in a short space of time it would imply that the stove has got to higher than normal working temperature, perhaps not run it quite so hard or run hard for short periods only, a miaximum of 15-20mins twice a day.
