    I've tried changeling the rope twice around the door I've used the recommended 12mm rope but you can still see the fire through the front of the fire door from the side looking down. I'm now... []

    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.

  • door adjustment on exe twin door

    Steve Casson 3 years ago

    how do you adjust the door hinges as they dont have bolts on them just pins,thanks

    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.

    We love the look of our fire but are having awful trouble with the draw of it even with vents at the front and one underneath. The fire just smoulders and then burns out, we can only get some... []

    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.

  • Paint peals off !

    Not long after we bought this gas fire ( brand new) the paint started pealing off ! So it has always looked a mess since we bought it ! Gives off good heat - and up until today it was easy... []

    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.

    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.

    I have had the Yeoman single door now for 2 years, it would be ok if i could turn down the flame, even with all the vents shut it still roars like a furnace, which is ok of you are happy getting... []

    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.

    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.
