    We have a Westfire 23 which is burning too quickly. It's like the controls at the bottom have no effect on the scale of burning. It's like a lot of air is blowing through the grate causing... []

    Had the Westfire 23 installed just before Christmas and luv it.We've already burnt through 3 cubic meters of seasoned logs so you can imagine how many times it's been fired up.So easy to use... []

    Stove expert replied: There is an option coal basket that can be added to this model which would allow for up to 20% of smokeless fuel to 80% wood being used. If the stove is burning too fast it would be advisable to get the flue draught checked as it may be too high and may need some control to regulate this.

    Stove expert replied: Fine tuning how to use a stove takes time and is worth pursuing, try using only one lever at a time to see what it does and you will soon get to know the best settings for your installation!

    I bought the Westfire 23 over 2 years ago and am very happy with the purchase. It looks great and pumps out a lot of heat. My living room is 6m x 5m and is 3m high with huge draughty bay windows... []

    Stove expert replied: Using damp unseasoned wood can cause problems with the chimney so insure that you are having it swept at least twice every season as the potential for chimney fires increases due to the residues that will be produced.

  • Westfire 23 ... Great Stove

    We looked at various stoves before choosing the Westfire 23. We have an Edwardian house and wanted something modern but which would not clash with other features of the house. We wanted a fire... []

    Stove expert replied: on Westfire stoves a good trick to lighting them is to crack the ashpan door a little open when you first light them.

    A design classic (pure cube sitting on four small cylinders - it doesn't get more classical than that) that actually works, as well as looking good. Rated at 6.1 KW, it chucks out twice as much... []

    I own the floor standing version with round legs. Great looking stove - convection system really provides great flow of heat throughout the room. Our room is 7x4m and this stove is perfect... []

    Stove expert replied: yep on the first few firings your stove will tend to smell a bit funny and give off some white smoke. This is the hi temp paint curing. I'd recommend opening some windows until the smell goes away. One or two firings should do the trick. If the smell is still there make sure you are getting the stove nice and hot.

    This is truly a very very good woodburner, the only fault I found was that the handle seems to be to close to the face of the stove, because, when hot if you touch the face with the 'free'... []
