Dislikes: Parts are hard to get

Comments: This stove was purchased in 1989 by the previous owner of my home. I have used the stove for 3 seasons and am pretty happy with the stove. The only issue that I have had is getting replacement parts. I had to replace the fire fence which broke in half(this is a cast iron piece that prevents ashes from falling out of the stove) and the glass. The glass took about 2 months to come in but the fire fence took well over a year to come in. I was told that the company is in Ireland and the fire fence needed to be made. This is a catalytic model so I will probably be replacing the ceramic insert soon as well.
