    Hello everyone,

    I have just moved into a new house which has a stove installed. The sweep said it has been installed professionally and very well which is good. He mentioned that it might be a 'Hunter' make of stove however I can't find anything online to help me identify it.

    I don't suppose anybody knows what make or model the stove is? And also confirm my suspicion that it is a multi fuel stove as everything I have read online seems to suggest that it is (as it has a raised grate, a riddler, and ash pan).

    Thanks!

    Welcome. Not sure yet, but it sure is a lazy one lying on it's side like that. Look on the back of the stove with a mirror for an identifying label.

    Have woken it up now!

    Thanks Billy - that's the one! I've been searching for days online to try and find a match. It looks like the Franco Belge Belfort - and looking at that it confirms that it is in fact a multi fuel stove :)

    Jason, is that wood touching the side of the stove? It's definitely too close and a serious hazard.

    Yes it was actually as my neatly stacked pile next to (but away from) the stove had collapsed and fallen into the side of the stove. Have now had to re-think indoor wood storage strategy!

    You wouldn't want that to happen in the middle of the night!

    Absolutely not - although until Billy identified my stove I hadn't been able to keep it burning for much more than an hour without refuelling! I think the issue is a combination of poorly-seasoned wood and not knowing how to use the airflow controls! I now realise you don't need air flow from under the grate when burning wood unless you want to churn through it...

    Well seasoned wood is the key Jason, best to process your own if possible as most firewood sellers split shortly before supply because they havent got the time or room to store/stack that much wood properly.
    Keep reading & learning on here, best site in the world in my opinion.

    Billy.

    Yes good advice I think. I'll make my way through this year with the pricier kiln-dried stuff I think, and then as soon as I've built my log store I'll start stashing for next year!

    Once I've mastered the stove, I need to move on to the open fires which I struggle to keep anything burning in at the moment!

    I'm sure I've much fun to come and I can see I'll be keeping a close eye on this site in the future ;)

    What's the etiquette for asking new questions here, guys? Do I start a new thread for new questions or is it ok to deviate from original topic once a thread is going?

    Since this is your thread you can do whatever you like, but you may get more responses from a new thread.
