so far. Haven’t needed to use glove to open door and doesn’t need ashes removed very often but when it does, it’s very easy. Got it 2 or 3 months ago but used it every night for last month. I can’t stop saying how wonderful it is…just hope I’m not speaking too soon!

for 12mm thick hearth and DEFRA approved.For burning coal just open the bottom grill/riddle to let in air from the bottom, and retain the two internal plates at each side, these help keep the coals in place. If burning logs remove the plates and close the grill.Woodwarm also sell a rear flue adapter if you don't want the flue coming out of the top.Stove is so easy to use, with easily adjustable primary and secondary air adjustments. Its a joy to use.

just been adding fuel in the morning and opening vents up and with in tens minutes its burning well again. Rooms tends to be about 22°c when we get up. Stove handle never gets hotter than warm. So easy to open without gloves. Got a couple of stoves fans on it to keep air circulating. If anything it heats the room up to much, have to have vents on there lowest settings but that makes wood last longer. I live in a 3 bed semi detached house. Its warms the house through out. The living room with the stove tends to be about 25°c to 28°c depending on vent settings. This is with kitchen and stairs doors open. This is in early april and Lowest overnight temp has been 1°c Build quality appears excellent. Doors shuts and opens easily and is tight fitting. The glass stays very clean. It can blacken up when slumbering overnight but this all disappears the next morning when fuel added and vents opened a little. Logs fit in easily through a large door and its nice to see the fire through the large viewing glass In the last week, its been continually burning for 4 days without issue. Would buy again, well worth the premium you pay for a woodwarm stove.
Anybody else had this issue
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.
of 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.
expansion noises until it was up to a static temperature e.g. 200 C and then as the stove cooled it again made noises, tings and pings. Once we were tuned into these noises it became very annoying. We've had experience of a Dovre 250 MF and that made no noises in comparison. Our very helpful shop / fitter replaced with a 2nd one and although the noises were less they were still there. This is not a cheap stove and I expected better. Excellent customer service from our local shop / fitter and we swapped for a 3 rd time to another make / model - a HETA 45 Inspire, which apart from the odd noise is silent in comparison.
- 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.
Stove expert replied: Great comments.
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.
