On the day of your installation, the installer should have taken time with you to show you how to operate your new stove. Stoves vary but follow the same general principles. You will need:

 

Matches

Firelighters

Kindling

2 Small Split Logs

 

Your stove will have AIr Controls and for example on a Mendip stove there is  a Universal Air Control that controls the Primary and Secondary source of air flow. The following points are based on Mendip stoves but can be used as guidelines for most stoves:

Lighting Your Fire

Pull out the Universal Air Control so it is in the 'open' position

 

The lever should also be to the left which allows the Primary supply of air (maximum air supply)

 

Place a couple of firelighters on the bed of the stove

 

Surround the firelighters with a pile of kindling, allowing space for air to pass between the kindling

 

Place 2 small split logs on top of the kindling

 

Light firelighters

 

Leave the door ajar on the latch allowing air in from the side

 

Allow the fire 5-10 minutes to establish

 

Add 1 further log

 

Close the door fully

 

Adjust the air control to a central position between Primary and Secondary (for a further 10 minutes)

 

Adjust the Air Control to the Secondary position (right) and push in 50%

 

Your fire should be established
