Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: None

Dislikes: Front of the stove warped, I thought it was the door gasket, but when it heated up you could see an opening between the door and the box. When the stove was cold, no gap. The ash removel plug is a disaster waiting to happen, you can hit this steel plate, with eyelit, and allow air to enter from under the stove. I ground this eyelet off and would just scoop out the ash. The door bottom collects ash so when ever you open the door it falls on the floor. Only burns for 4 hours, partially because the box is to small. Door closer is cheap.

Comments: I used it two winters and just pulled it out and bought a good stove. Tried to save some money, didn't work. Buy a good stove and look it over good, could design better stove myself.
