    Bought a Yeoman CL5 wood burning stove 3 years ago and it was installed by HETAS engineer. I burn kiln dried oak but cannot get it to burn slowly or efficiently. It either burns 2-3 logs per
    hour with huge flames and draws more air than a Jumbo jet and makes a similar noise, or the glass goes black and it goes out if I run it on anything less than maximum heat. Birch burns cleaner but only lasts 5 minutes. I cannot recommend this stove.

    Stove expert replied: The air controls will give you a varying amount of control on the rate of burn and a minimal change should allow for a gentle flame to be achieved, if this is not possible then the installation should be checked to make sure that the flue draw matches the recommendation by the manufacturer and is not greater causing the over-drawing periods. You say the glass goes black is this because you shut the air control completely as this would then be expected?

    We have had our yeoman cl5 4 years now and what a fantastic little multifuel stove it's been, with large glass door so you get a great view of the flames and never fails to deliver. We virtually
    have it lit 24/7 in winter and it even goes overnight once banked up with smokeless fuel, the ecofan is still running in the morning, add a bit of kindling and away it goes again. We find ourselves watching the fire more than the TV. It's a stylish looking stove and definitely a quality built product, it is so easy to keep clean and never lets us down.
