SOURCE: I have just opened up my chimney and took it back

Hi,

You will need to install a flue liner ( i know its a nuisance) to allow the products of combustion to escape as quickly and as safely as possible.

If you installed a gas appliance without a liner, due to the temperature of the flue gases (lower than solid fuel) the emissions would struggle to exit via the flue terminal.

If you install the appliance following the manufacturers instructions, you cannot go wrong. The other recommendation is get a 'Gas Safe' engineer to carry out the commssioning/testing.(house insurance void if not certified)

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: i have a quebb master multi fuel fire/stove

Hi Davebingj, It is quit simple to solve this problem. Inside your Quebb is a removable roof. You can lift up the roof a small bit, fold it together and pull it out of the front door. Then you have full acces to the flue pipe at the end of the stove. With the sweeping gear, which can bent easily, you can sweep the chimney very good because the sod coming out is staying inside the stove and doesn't sweep aroun the room. Hope this will help. If not give me an mail at: marbert2@eircom.net Hubert.

Can't keep the wood burning in stove. How does the buck stove take in air?


To burn properly, it needs proper combustion air and proper draft. Draft is effected by the size and height of the flue the appliance is connected to and by how much combustion air is available. The appliance flue connection should not be reduced to fit a smaller chimney size. That is, an 8" flue should not have an 8 x 6 reducer to vent it into a 6" chimney.

The wood you are burning could contribute to a poorly burning fire. To burn properly, the wood needs to have been "seasoned" for a minimum of 1 year or close to it. Two years is even better. "Green"
or freshly cut wood contains an unbelieveable amount of moisture in it and a tremendous amount of the heat is wasted just "preheating" the wood to the temperature that causes it to release gasses for ignition.

I don't know the style or model of your Buck, but all wood burning appliances should have combustion air dampers of either a sliding design, rotating round design or hinged design with handle at the bottom front of the firebox. I'm sure there are some fancy new designs that have air piped in from outside the structure.

Every wood fired stove, fireplace or furnace has its own idiosyncrasies and its up to the user to determine what's required for making it operate as designed.

Wher to find drawings for metters canberra no2 wood stove


As a farmer's son in Shepparton, Victoria, we have always had a Metter woodstove/cooktop combination that provided heat as well as cooking food. I guess there are a lot of Metters stove still around since the founder, Frederick Metter, started his production of stoves in Adelaide in 1891. Although it was just a wood stove to us without taking much notice of its history, we still have one at our old farm homestead. But I could help you find what you want by contacting the retailer of these stoves, it all depends where you live, and you could find even spare parts for your stove, or from there you could continue with your research by asking the dealer for information. Metter wood stoves are great winter warmers but can turn a kitchen into a sauna bath in summer, unless you have large windows to allow cool outdoor air to enter the room. Here is the link...

If you are talking about the damper flap on the flue pipe. You have to go to a heating supply and buy a new flue that is already attached to a section of new pipe and fit it together. I'm not sure if your flue is free flap type of arm driven. British gas is trying to make a buck off you . Call a regular boiler repair man if you don't feel comfortable doing it your self.. Mine came apart at the hinge. The pin came out..I replaced it with a wire brad (nail) and it works just fine.

Hello, I'm having problems getting a new gas fire fitted in my rental property. I have been quoted at £763. I already have a coal effect gas fire on the wall (no fire place) with a flue and obviously...


Older fires have an exhaust flue and get their air supply from the well ventilated room in which they're fitted. Balanced flue fires are the correct choice for rooms which lack sufficient fresh air ventilation. They have a flue which draws in outside air necessary for combustion whilst also acting as an exhaust for the combustion products. To work the appliance must be completely sealed so that no air is drawn from the room; the pressure of the incoming air and the pressure of the outgoing exhaust is equal so the flue is described as balanced.

The lack of a requirement for fresh air ventilation means that less energy is used; open outside vents let heat out as whilst allowing fresh air to enter.

Balanced flue appliances which exit directly through an exterior wall should cost very little more to fit than a regular appliance: the only additional cost may be in blocking up the old flue outlet and creating a new one but this rarely takes more than half an hour. A sealing collar is fitted to the outside of the flue (included in the flue kit) so there may be additional costs in hiring a ladder (or even erecting scaffolding) if you're higher than the ground floor.

Budget-level balanced flue fires typically cost between £350-£500 and the fitting charge may be fair depending upon your property, but it's also worryingly vague. A properly qualified and experienced gas fitter should be able to give you a precise quote and will already possess all of the tools needed to fit a new flue.

Also, ensure that you have your landlord's written permission to fit the new fire. If you don't then the landlord can claim that you have damaged the property and demand that you restore the property to original condition when you leave. If you get permission then you can also expect your landlord to insist that when you leave the property you do not take the new fire with you and that you supply an original copy of the gas fitter's installation certificate. Without this the landlord is within his/her rights to commission a safety inspection at your expense. Note that subsequent annual gas safety checks are required to be carried out by the landlord at his/her expense as per normal.

(1) The lower "enamel" pipe is possibly Ceramic coated pipe, used for high temperature flue applications.
(2) The "stickey black tar" is creasote. Whoever installed the flue pipe did it wrong. It needs to be reversed so that the "Crimped" end of the pipe is pointing down. That way the creasote will drain back into the stove and get burned up.
