Stove expert replied: It would appear that the stove has become too hot, (it has been working at a higher than recommended temperature). This could be a flue draw problem which should be investigated further to prevent further damage.

rotating bars which open when you turn the lever. If a bit of fuel gets stuck between the bars when you open them you cannot close the bars again. I am convinced that a multifuel stove should have the traditional rotating riddler, to avoid this problem.
- this fits the bill.The best thing we''ve found is the controllability - as easy as controlling a gas fire! This was one of the first Woodwarm stoves the installer had put in. He''s already put another up working in his shop as he too was that impressed. Not the cheapest but worth the extra expense.
Stove expert replied: Strange to have two stoves with same problem, are these kept in by twisting and locking in place or just with sealant?
engineering that would heat the whole house. Although our firegem is not quite as much of a roaring beast as the fireview, possibly due to having a smaller 5 inch flue and different airwash routing (underside feed instead of side), it is still a beautiful bit of kit. It lights and heats up very quickly just using paper and kindling and is very responsive. Its large window at the front gives a great view of the splendor contained within and the handle is much easier to use that than the Fireview and never gets too hot to handle. I'm unable to compare it to other branded burners, since having my first Woodwarm and not wanting to choose another brand due to being so impressed with the design, build quality and service. We have a factory fitted double heat shield installed at the rear which is very effective at redirecting heat and reduces the gap from the rear of the stove to the wall to approx. 4 inches, the outer most metal shield only gets touch warm. We have our stove with a log store below and sprayed in honeyglow brown instead of the usual metallic black, and combined with the modern design it really stands out and forms a main feature of the room. I'm very happy that I decided to go for another Woodwarm and as other owners will agree that once you've had a Woodwarm, you will never look elsewhere. They may not be the cheapest but you get what you pay for and it's totally worth the extra.

Kia (no disrespect meant to Kia owners). The Woodwarm is so easy to light, it gets up to temperature so much more quickly and really kicks out the heat. Above all though the glass is always spotless, we've never had to clean it, whereas the Stovax always sooted up every 3-4 fires and that was burning good dry timber and having it drawing to keep the supposed air wash system operating. I'll never buy a Stovax again. My very strong advice is spend the extra cash and get a Woodwarm. I'm a bit of a pedantic person and quite particular but I just can't fault the Woodwarm, it's just brilliant. I promise you will not be disappointed.

look at another stove and a Woodwarm Pheonix Firegem was fired up, I was attracted to it's heat output and the simple clean lines on further investigation the way it was put together and the thought that had gone into it's engineering design won me over, it is very easy to light with just kindling and paper (I've never used firelighters), and it burns extremely well, the handle is so easy to operate (unlike some of the other stoves I looked at) and being below the fire glass does not get very hot, the airwash keeps the glass very clean, it also seems far more responsive to the air controls than some other stoves I've used, and it can make the fuel last without getting too cool, the old saying "you get what you pay for" seems perfectly true, I would recommend this stove to anyone who was looking for a top quality, superbly engineered stove!
