Controls and Usage

To make sure you get the most out of your stove, below are a few tips on how to use the controls.

General advice for all stoves

We advise that suitable gloves are used when operating the air control, and when opening the door.

Lighting your stove - 

    When lighting your stove you should open the primary and secondary air fully. Light one or two firelighters placed centrally on the grate, allowing the flames to become established before placing several pieces of small dry kindling in a criss-cross fashion above the firelighters, taking care not to smother the fire.

Once you have a good fire established across the grate bed, further fuel can be added as required and the air controls set to the correct position.

Should the fire fail to light correctly open the door and use a poker to spread the fuel across the grate.

 Primary air provides an air draught to the bed of the fire and can be controlled by turning the spinner in the door.

 

Secondary air is controlled via the slider above the door and supplies air to the stove's airwash system, allowing the viewing window to remain clean.

Tertiary air aids in good secondary combustion of the duel and reducing emissions into the chimney and enviroment. 

The tertiary air controls are on the underside of the stove on the double sided models.

The air intake into the stove is controlled by one push pull air control rod. Both Primary and Secondary are operated using this control rod.

 

A) When the air control rod is pushed in fully then both the Primary and Secondary air intakes are in the closed position.

 

 B) To operate pull the air control rod away from the stove. For the Primary and Secondary air to be in the fully open position pull the air control rod knob away from the stove until it stops. This is necessary for lighting the stove.

 

 C) The air intake needs to be between 25% - 50% open to obtain the best result for burning wood.
