which is intentional to allow the fire to warm the whole of my three storey house.Build quality is excellent. Used every day for around six months of the year, the only item needing replacement was the firebricks on either side.Looks good too, particularly when backwash is open with the flames lapping against the glass.

). A large window for better view of the fire, with the single door anyway. Simple controls which have no springs etc to go wrong. Easy to use handle which is easily adjustable if the fire rope flattens out. Large flat top for a kettle or casserole dish. Having used the stove for a month now (couldn't wait till winter to try it out), I couldn't be happier. The stove lights first time every time, quickly getting up to temperature, have found a stovepipe thermometer is a must have. Gives out loads of heat and window stays clear, the one time it did blacken was I think due to me using wood that was not properly seasoned. Easily takes 15" logs although the manual says up to 12", don't understand why Yeoman say this as firebox is same width as the larger Devon which takes up to 15" logs ?. Think yeoman have to re write their brochure as log size is a selling point (less chopping). I saw an on line video how to keep a stove in overnight, tried it and worked a treat. The trick is to bank the stove up an hour or more before you go to bed, run the stove hot until there are no flames just glowing charcoal, then shut down the stove to tick over. Go to bed. In the morning, open up the air supplies, put some kindling on the still glowing embers and wooosh...withing a few seconds, fire going again. Love my Yeoman Exe, roll on winter.

, Stovax, the manufacturer of Yeoman stoves, has changed the highly efficient twin riddler for a single one with a poorly designed & very difficult to operate mechanism with ash frequently clogging the guide tube; altered the secondary control position & design so reducing air wash efficiency.The operating lever is also smaller, awkward to get to & much hotter as a result. The ash tray now sits on rails making the area very awkward to clean. I wrote to Stovax''s product manager about my findings as an engineer & long term user of various stoves. Letter not responded to or acknowledged. I have sold the stove & replaced it with a Clearview...far far better.
. Biggest grievance is the airwash: the glass is very dirty after each fire. Have ruled out wood - seeing same wood burned in friend''s logburners does not give same dirt on screen. Used troubleshooting in user manual so using vents correctly (anyway they have to be fully open or fire just dies away). Other grievance is its burning. Can''t get it to burn anything bigger than a small log without dying out. All in all I can get it roaring and kicking out great heat, but it''s with only small logs and at the expense of having to clean the glass the next morning! Any tips greatfully received!
Stove expert replied: It sounds as if there is not enough air to allow combustion, is there an air brick in the room? Was a flue draw taken on installation, if not I would suggest this is undertaken to check that it meets the stoves requirements. You say the stove dies away unless using small logs, if there is little air then it is struggling to burn a small log and it will fail when anything larger is used. It is not a problem with the stove but likely to be an installation / flue issue causing the lack of performance.
better flame picture. not had any issues in 6 years still going strong. first glass replacement this year as its got hard to see through. i have the multifule kit and its also defra approved for smoke restricted areas. top marks
time.. The mechanisms for the damper and door fastenings are primitive and difficult to use. The door fastening is a semicircular plate that grates and is fiddly and the dampers difficult to adjust and just feel tacky. We have a Charnwood in another room and its just not even in the same league. So nil points from me I am afraid.
to remove & locate back in place, such that my partner finds it too difficult. Over many years, I have used Suffolk Lark, Yeoman, Villager, Franco Belge, Godin & Coseyfire Oakley. All the non Yeoman were easier to operate so I will modify or replace the Exe with a Coseyfire at less cost.
, this has really won our hearts. Lovely and toasty, a wide firebox and the single door opens nice and wide and looks fantastic. So much less mess than the open fire, more heat and easier to use. We couldn't be happier (or warmer) this winter !
Stove expert replied: Great review and refreshing to see that a customer has taken time to learn about how to get the best from the stove, not just expected everything to be perfect from day one.
I have been informed by a couple of local service engineers that it no longer meets current regulations so they are unable/unwilling to carry out any repair. Now looking at replacing with new model as Iâ€™m so pleased with the function
Stove expert replied: They still make the Exe but after 30 years a new version should be more efficient. What a great review for this old timer!
has not helped the problem.
