going to try the 14mm rope just to see if that will work as it''s setting off my smoke alarm when we go to bed after banking the fire up with coal for the night. I''m jumping out of bed checking the sitting room for fire and smoke but nothing is visible or smell. I've got two carbon monoxide detectors and one smoke alarm, just the smoke alarm is going off. I've swept the chimney which is twin wall flue pipe straight through up into my loft space and out through the roof and well above the pitch of my roof top, so the smoke can exist freely can any one help me to resolve this problem please thanks Tommy!!!
Stove expert replied: Check that the smoke alarm is working correctly. See if you can adjust the doors on the hinges so that a seal with the body can be achieved. Do not shut the stove down too much as this means the gases stay in the firebox for longer than suitable and they do not get lifted up the flue system adequately. Do also check that you have enough free air in the room to allow combustion to take place effectively. You should only use the manufacturers suggested rope size on the appliance.

though but really disappointed
Stove expert replied: If the door adjustment is required because they do not line up often a washer is added before the holding / hinge pin, it will depend on why the doors need adjusting. If they are not sealing then it may be new rope is required. Do refer to the manual for specific maintenance guidance.
sort of a fire with the doors continually open which is not cost effective, or how it should work. We have had the retailer out and now a Stovax Rep and still it can't be sorted!! neither of them seem to know what to suggest! Can you help? if it's the chimney itself what can we do?, we don't want to have to replace it with a gas fire, We only had it installed in October so you can imagine it's been quite a miserable winter for us inside and out.Kind regardsLynn I have filled in the ratings for you but where the question is ''would you buy the stove again'' I have only put No because it's not working how we want it to but I don't know it may be a combination of things causing it not work properly! We need some help please
Stove expert replied: Things to check, is there enough free air in the room to allow for combustion, if a well insulated property an air brick is likely to be required? Is the chimney lined? Have you another flue in the property that may have a stronger flue draw than the one this stove is installed in? What height is the flue? Being that the stove seems to work when the doors are open would seem to indicate that not enough air is getting into the stove when they are closed so check8ing the above is important. Also is it a Devon or Exe model as they are different. Do also check that the air controls are able to open when operated as I have known the internal parts being put on incorrectly so closed was intact open and vice versa.
to use . When the paint peals off it looks grey .
Stove expert replied: Shame about the paint issue when the stove seems to be so good otherwise, was this issue reported under warranty so that it could have been rectified? Perhaps a light respray of the affected areas would improve the overall appearance of the stove.
clean dry seasoned wood. Door seals also failed which should not be a problem except the screws retaining glass are cheap and tend to break off no matter how gently you got at them requiring re tapping of holes. The replacement seals Yeoman sell you are hugely expensive and are not good quality and I found the staff very unhelpful. It seems the original Yeoman business went into liquidation. What you get now is a very poor quality product and service. Do yourself a favour and buy something else.
Stove expert replied: You did not say how old this stove was so the replacement parts may be down to wear and tear and not quality alone as you suggest.
up every 15 minutes to put more wood on. I have now had 3 door seals fitted in 2 years, there is always a whistling noise from the bottom of the stove where it never seals properly, after asking for advice from yeoman, they said they dont know why. Not very helpful. Am now looking at getting rid of this stove for one that burns a bit slower, be prepared to burn about 2 tonne of wood a season. Also quite noisy, lots to ticking/clicking sounds.
Stove expert replied: Installing a flue damper or stabilizer may help to get control on the burning rate. Test the seals by shutting a piece of paper between the body and the door. If it comes out easily when pulled then the doors needs adjusting or the door seals need replacing.
of heat it gives out is second to none. Heats our sitting room & hall in a very cold, draughty, single glazed old house. Yet the heat is warm and ambient. Would absolutely recommend it. (many of our friends have more expensive stoves that are less effective and far more fiddly to use)
Stove expert replied: What a great review, full of praise. Well done Yeoman.
prone to getting stuck in slots] plus the flue damper to manage the burn. Glazing tends to tar up readily if run low for meaningful periods. Door seals are simple asbestos string lines run in cast gutter [which come unstuck but can be re glued with appropriate adhesive]. Important these work efficiently [i.e. seal properly] or a dampened burn can cause fumes to leak out. Lighting is OK - doesn't like a very cold chimney - and will take proper sized logs [I use up to 18"].
Stove expert replied: If you are getting fumes back into the room this should be investigated as this is dangerous. Try not to use the stove on a slow burn for long periods as this is not good for the flue system.
lamp initially when the vents are open, but once properly alight (after about 5 minutes)we close it down so that the flames are just flickering. Gives off a tremendous amount of heat - heats all downstairs and keeps upstairs at a nice temparature too.No complaints at all, a great buy.
