How can I prevent the glass from turning white?


Answer: White glass can be caused by faulty operation, such as:

1. Glass not cleaned sufficiently

2. Burning milk cartons, newspaper advertising material, etc.

3. Stoking with unapproved fuels, such as coke and the like, which creates too much heat.

4. Stoking with impregnated tree or pressed wallboard

5. Excess chimney draft

6. Stoking with the ash pan open. If the glass turns white or opaque and cannot be immediately cleaned, it may have been permanently damaged. 



How do I light my stove? 

1. Use kindling, newspaper to egnite flame. Try not to use to many firelighters (as they can blacken the glass). 

2. Make sure you have at least one of the air vents open as all fires need a certain amount of air. 

3. Once the fire starts to light, let the flame roar up the chimney for at least 20 minutes. You need to do this to ensure that your chimney is warm enough and to get the best draugh on your chimney. 

4. Start to close some of the vents so that you are regulating the air flow and you are in control of the rate in which the fire burns.
