Review of Woodwarm Phoenix Fireblaze 6kW

Good stove but noisy

7 years ago

Had the stove 2 months, easy to light over a Dovre stove we inherited but that had the flue liner installed upside down.

Build quality is good for me as I have big hands so could do with a deeper gap from handle to the door.

The annoying thing is latterly the stove is very noisy as it heats up as the metal expands I presume, but still makes noise as I put on more logs when the stove is up to temp, apart from this I would recommend it if I could get rid of the noise

Stove expert replied: Have you gone back to the supplier? Do check the internal parts are located correctly as I have known a noise as described from a baffle plate that was not installed in the correct position and made a noise on expansion and contraction.
