Milan 4 Passive
The Milan Passive when connected to an outside dedicated air supply
provides all the air for combustion. When the door is closed air is directed into
the stove for combustion. During refuelling when the door is open the air is
directed to the front face of the stove where it is drawn into the furnace
reducing the spillage of CO and CO2 into the room.
Tested in a “tight room” (leakage level) of 1.3m 3 h-1 m-2.(0-57Pa)
With a flue draft of -6 and -12 Pa the spillage was insignificant (up to 2 ppm
CO and up to 100 ppm CO2)
With a flue draft of -12 Pa the spillage was insignificant (up to 1 ppm CO and
up to 100 ppm CO2) when the door is left open for 3 minutes.
This appliance is not air tight.
Air Supply Details:
The air supply is fed into the base of the stove via an 80 mm internal diameter
82 mm external diameter spigot. This provides all the air for combustion, both
primary and secondary. See Milan 4 Passive Figure 1
Maximum length air inlet: 4.1 meters.
Maximum bends: 4 x 90 degree and 2 x 45 degree.
Minimum internal diameter 80 mm.
The pipe must be non combustible and smooth on the inside. IE: Condenser
CD 80 mm.
Due to the variant in site requirement Chesneys do not supply any ducting or
grills.
The external grill must provide at least 5026 mm2 of free air and fixed open.
Due consideration must be given to the location of the air inlet.
1. Due to the pressure, positive or negative created around a building the air
inlet may have to terminate on two different external walls. Where only one air
inlet can be achieved this should be on the positive pressure side of the
building to windward.
2. No blockages can occur by animals or plants.

This stove contains no asbestos. If there is a possibility of disturbing any
asbestos in the course of installation then please seek specialist guidance and
use appropriate protective equipment.
Metal Parts
When installing or servicing this stove care should be taken to avoid the
possibility of personal injury.
Ventilation
Please refer to Document J section 2 (table 1)
There must be an adequate air supply into the room in which the appliance is
installed to allow the appliance to function properly.
The installation of extract ventilation or other appliance that requires air for
combustion in the same area are not recommended and will effect this
appliance. Refer to page 17 Flue Requirements
15
Chesney‟s recommend an appropriate spillage test be conducted with all
appliances post installation.
Air inlet grilles must be so positioned that they are not liable to blockage.
There must be an adequate air supply into the room in which the appliance is
installed and make sure apertures provided for this purpose are not restricted
and are free from blockage
Carbon Monoxide
Building Regulations require that whenever a new or replacement fixed solid
fuel or wood/biomass appliance is installed in a dwelling a carbon monoxide
alarm must be fitted in the same room as the appliance. Further guidance is
available in BS EN50292:2002 and from the alarm manufacturer‟s
instructions. Provision of an alarm must not be considered a substitute for
either installing the appliance correctly or ensuring regular servicing and
maintenance of the appliance and chimney system.
It is now a requirement for an electronic carbon monoxide detector conforming
to BS EN 50291 to be fitted in the room where the appliance has been
installed. This should be maintained and tested in accordance with the
manufactures instructions.
Hearths
All Chesneys freestanding wood and multi fuel stoves can be fitted on a 12mm
hearth providing there is sufficient load-bearing capacity.
The inset Apollo‟s must be fitted on a full constructional hearth.
Chesneys recommend a minimum distance in front of the stove that allows the
door to be opened fully and not overhanging the hearth. This is a Chesneys
recommendations only please refer to Document J Section 2 dia 26 & 27.
16
Flue Requirements
The chimney must be swept before installation and checked for soundness
and suitability. The chimney must also be free from cracks and blockages.
If you find the chimney is in a poor condition then expert advice should be
sought
If the stove is fitted in place of an open fire then the chimney should be swept
one month after installation to clear any soot falls which may have occurred
due to the difference in combustion between the stove and the open fire.
The chimney and connecting fluepipe must not narrow to less than the size of
the outlet socket of the stove at any point
This appliance must not be used in a shared flue system.
The minimum flue draft is 12 pascals at nominal output.
Minimum flue height 5 meters.
The 150mm diameter flue models may be increased to 170mm diameter.
The 130mm diameter flue should be increased to 150mm. A 130mm flue may
be used when the stove is fitted in the smoke control mode, i.e. Smoke Tab
removed.
It is recommended that there should not be at any time an extractor fan fitted
in the same room as the appliance as this may cause the appliance to emit
fumes into the room. If unavoidable the appliance must be checked with
reference to ADJ 1.21, and necessary action taken.
If appliance is fitted in an area that has another flue (mechanical or otherwise)
a flue interference test must be completed and recorded.

5. Converting Top to Rear Exit
The Apollo stoves cannot be rear exit. All other stoves can be converted and
are pre-assembled for a top exit. A blanking plate is available please contact
your local stockists.
Fire Cement
Some types of fire cement are caustic and should not be allowed to come into
contact with the skin. In case of contact wash immediately with plenty of
water.
To Convert the 4,5,6,8 and Double Sided 10 to Rear Exit:
1) Remove lid.
2) Undo the two flue collar retaining bolts and lift collar off.
3) Remove the rear convector panel by undoing the four hexagonal
bolts and knock out the pre cut panel.
4) Undo blanking plate retaining bolts and remove from rear of stove.
5) Place flue collar onto rear of stove ensuring seal is intact and seated
correctly and secure with the two bolts.
6) Replace rear convector panel with the hexagonal bolts.
7) Place blanking plate from rear of stove into the top of the stove
ensuring seal is intact and seated correctly securing with 2 bolts.
8) Replace lid with the decorative blank.
To convert the Alpine to Rear Exit:
The fire cube will need to be removed from the Alpine cladding.
1) Remove door by opening and taking the weight whilst undoing the
hexagonal bolts that hold the hinges in place, the door is cast iron
and therefore heavy.
2) Look under the fire box and you will see 8 bolts. 4 are holding the
fire box to the cladding and 4 are levelling bolts (these can be
adjusted to line up the fire cube and door to the cladding). Undo
the 4 x retaining bolts.
3) Remove both baffles and undo the flue collar retaining bolts. Push
the flue collar up and twist, it will be held on by two lugs.
4) Remove the rear convector panel by undoing the four hexagonal
bolts.
5) Lift the fire cube out of the cladding from the back.
6) Remove the flue collar from the cladding by twisting.
7) Remove the rear exit blanking plate and place in the top of the fire
cube ensuring the seal is intact and seated correctly.
8) Fit the flue collar to the rear exit ensuring the seal is intact and
seated correctly.
9) Knock out pre cut panel in rear convector panel.
19
10) Refit fire cube, loosely secure fire cube to the cladding using the
levelling bolts to line up fire cube with cladding. When in position
tighten the four securing bolts.
11) Replace door and rear convector panel and place decorative
blank on top of stove cladding.
To convert the 12 series to rear Exit:

6. Smoke Control
The Chesney’s 4,5,6,8 series stoves are DEFRA exempt appliances that
can be used in Smoke Control Zones.
The “Smoke Tab” is fitted on the underside of the fire cube on the left hand
side and must be removed with the retaining bolt and discarded.
The Milan and Shoreditch stoves have heat shields under the stove that will
have to be removed by undoing the four hexagonal bolts to reveal the “Smoke
Tab”. Always replace the heat shields.
Stove
Operation in Smoke Control Zones
Make up fire as described page 28. Do not reduce the Air Flow Bar until the
kindling and logs are fully blackened, this may take 2-5 minutes (moisture
content and type of wood will dictate this) on lighting and on refuelling. You
must always refuel on a hot bed of ash. Do not over load the stove.
The quality of your fuel is of utmost importance.
Only burn HETAS approved wood logs and smokeless fuels (coals).
21
The Clean Air Act 1993 and Smoke Control Areas
Under the Clean Air Act local authorities may declare the whole or part of the
district of the authority to be a smoke control area. It is an offence to emit
smoke from a chimney of a building, from a furnace or from any fixed boiler if
located in a designated smoke control area. It is also an offence to acquire an
"unauthorised fuel" for use within a smoke control area unless it is used in an
"exempt" appliance ("exempted" from the controls which generally apply in the
smoke control area).
The Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has powers
under the Act to authorise smokeless fuels or exempt appliances for use in
smoke control areas in England. In Scotland and Wales this power rests with
Ministers in the devolved administrations for those countries. Separate
legislation, the Clean Air (Northern Ireland) Order 1981, applies in Northern
Ireland. Therefore it is a requirement that fuels burnt or obtained for use in
smoke control areas have been "authorised" in Regulations and that
appliances used to burn solid fuel in those areas (other than "authorised"
fuels) have been exempted by an Order made and signed by the Secretary of
State or Minister in the devolved administrations.
The Smoke Control Tab MUST BE REMOVED for use in a smoke control
area.
Chesney‟s range of Wood and Multi-Fuel stoves have been recommended as
suitable for use in smoke control areas when burning HETAS approved wood
logs and smokeless fuel only.
Further information on the requirements of the Clean Air Act can be found
here: http://smokecontrol.defra.gov.uk/
Your local authority is responsible for implementing the Clean Air Act 1993
including designation and supervision of smoke control areas and you can

7. Apollo 4 and 8 Installation
The Apollo range of inset stoves have been designed to be installed in two
stages. The outer casing needs to be installed before the fire cube, and the
outer frame and door will need to be removed to install this appliance.
1) Remove all internal parts (baffles, side and rear bricks, solid fuel
grate and ash pan (8 series only).
2) Remove the frame which is secured with four hexagonal bolts
under the top edge circled below (figure 3).
3) To remove the door you must release the door retaining bar
before lifting off the hinges.
4) The flue collar retaining bolts are now visible; remove these and
the flue collar will drop down inside the fire cube.
5) Remove the fire cube retaining bolts (circled figure 2).
Figure 2
Figure
3
6) Remove the four transport bolts
in the rear of the outer casing. The fire cube
can now be removed.
7) If in a Smoke Control Zone remove “Smoke Tab”
8) Instal the outer casing. There are eight available securing points
for the outer casing four in the base and four in the rear a
minimum of four points must be used.
The outer box must be sealed with a heat proof sealant and mechanically
fixed to the front face of the chimney breast this will allow the chimney to be
back filled.
23
Chimney Connection
1) Drop the liner through the outer casing and fix the flue adaptor,
then fit the flue collar to the adaptor bending the adaptor lugs to
secure the collar to the adaptor.
2) On the 8 series only there is an additional directional flue collar
that bolts to the inside of the outer casing. This will need to be
done at this stage.
Note: If connecting to an existing chimney you will need to make an opening
in the front face of the chimney breast above the outer casing to make a
compliant appropriate connection to the outer casing flue collar and the
existing flue.
3) Slide the fire cube back into the outer casing and fix in place with
two fixing bolts as previously illustrated.
4) Secure the flue collar inside the fire cube, ensuring a good seal is
achieved.
5) Replace all internal parts starting with the second baffle.
Hearth
The Apollo range must be installed on a full constructional hearth in
accordance with Building Regulations, Document J section 2 dia 26 & 27,
All hearths for all appliances must be secured and level.
24
8. Door Seal Replacement and Door Handles
Always use gloves when handling ceramic rope.
Apollo and Milan
Remove door from the stove and remove rope seal clamps. Discard old rope
seal and replace with Chesney‟s rope seal. Do not tighten rope seal clamps
until all bots are in and hand tight, then tighten all bolts.
Freestanding series stoves
Remove door and place face side down on a suitably protected table. Remove
old seal and clean the rope seal channel thoroughly with wire a brush. Ensure
the rope channel is clean and dust free.
Apply a continuous and even bead of glue in the channel. Place the new
ceramic rope onto the glue, being careful not to stretch or twist. Press the
rope firmly into the channel. Remove any excess glue.
Leave for 2-4 hours before refitting the door, allow 24 hours for the glue to dry.
Door handles
The door handles and mechanism are designed to be adjustable so they can
be wound in or out to achieve a good seal between the door and the stove
body and to get more use from the rope seal. This configuration means that
the stove handle and mechanism are in two parts and are secured using a
grub screw. Throughout use the grub screw will require tightening from time to
time to ensure a firm connection. There is an allen key supplied with the stove
for this purpose. For appliances with the 90 degree handle configuration see
notes on page 21.
25
9. Commissioning
Check all internal parts are fitted correctly and there are no gaps between the
firebricks and baffles and the log retainer is secure:
Wood Burning Only 4,5 and 12 Series
Secondary baffle.
Firebricks: base, back, sides and baffle.
Metal flue protector strip on top of the back brick(not fitted 12 series)
Log retainer (not fitted on Milan 4 model)
Multi-Fuel 6 and 8 Series
Secondary baffle
Ash pan
Cast iron grate complete with riddling section.
Log retainer.
Firebricks: rear and sides.
Check all the levers are operating fully and freely. The riddling bar on the right
hand side of the stove should move the circular riddle grid. The riddle lever is
located on the front of the stove underneath the grid on the Apollo.
Check the Fuel Selector Lever (left hand side of stove) and under the fire cube
front left side on the Apollo 8 operating smoothly.
On completion of installation after allowing any fire cement & mortar to dry out,
the stove should be checked so that all seals/joints are sound. The flue should
also be checked by lighting a small fire and checking fumes are taken from the
appliance up the chimney and emitted safely.
26
Door Seal Testing and Adjustment
Without a good sound airtight seal around the door the stove will not work as
designed and will lead to the glass blackening and a loss of control.
Over time the rope seal compresses and the seal between the door and the
fire cube is compromised resulting in the need to replace the rope.
Testing the door seal
With the stove cold take a piece of paper, open the door and place the paper
between the door and the stove. Close the door. The paper should be trapped
between the door and the fire cube. There should be some resistance when
pulling the paper out. This should be done on all four sides of the door.
Adjusting the door
Where the paper is not trapped the door needs to be adjusted. If the
adjustment needs to be made on the handle side of the stove, wind or unwind
the handle one complete turn and retest. For appliances that have a restricted
90 degree handle, release the grub screw on the side of the door boss (figure
4) to allow the mechanism to turn fully. Replace after adjustment. If the handle
does not line up with the door simply screw the grub screw in or out until it
does.
Figure 4
For adjustments on the hinge side of the stove the door must be removed. Lift
the top off the stove, twist and rest on the fire cube. Open the door
(Shoreditch, Shipton, Salisbury and Beaumont models) and lift from the hinge
pins.
Loosen the grub screws under the hinge pins, rotate hinge pin in clockwise
direction to reduce the gap between the door and fire cube, anticlockwise to
increase the gap. Replace door and check seal before tightening grub screws.
27
Apollo models
The frame and door retainer must be removed before the door can be
removed see Apollo information pages. Then rotate the hinge pin clockwise or
anticlockwise as described.
Alpine models
The door will have to be removed as described in the Converting Alpine to
rear exit section. Rotate hinge pin clockwise or anticlockwise as described.
Milan models
There is limited adjustment on this model. Slacken the hinge retaining bolts
that secure the hinge to the fire cube body. Now the door is free to move in
and out on the hinge about 2-3mm. Retighten and test door seal.
If you cannot achieve an airtight seal with these adjustment the rope seal will
need to be replaced.
Baffles
All Chesney‟s stoves have two baffles which add to the efficiency and ease of
use of the stoves.
The first or primary baffle sits on top of the side and rear firebricks.
The second baffle is secured onto the roof of the fire cube at the front.
Both baffles will wear out over time and will need replacing. This will depend
on the number and length of the fires and type of fuel used.
Refer to 12 series and Double 10 pages
Figure 5 and 6
Note:
The second baffle may be removed when using the rear flue connection.
28
10. The Curing Process
Your Chesney‟s stove has been designed to operate with minimum effort. As
with all wood burning and multi fuel stoves your new stove will need to be
„cured‟ before commencing normal use.
For the first lighting of the stove after installation it is VERY IMPORTANT that
the door remains slightly ajar during the first firing. During the first firing the
paint finish goes through a curing process which will soften the paint with the
heat. As the stove cools down the paint will harden. This process can take
several firings, and will depend on the temperature achieved and for how long
the fire has been left to burn.
Leaving the door slightly ajar during the first firing will prevent the rope from
sticking to the softened paint during the curing process.
It is also very important the paint is not touched during this process. Due to
the newness of materials, the fire will give off an unpleasant odour for a period
of time after commissioning. This is quite normal as the paint cures and will
disappear after several uses once the stove has been operating at its normal
temperature for several hours.
Operate the appliance at a low output for the first few burns to allow the curing
of the materials. Avoid contact with the painted surfaces of the appliance
during the first periods of use. During this process use the complimentary
gauntlets carefully to avoid brushing the soft paint off the door.
Keep the room well ventilated to avoid a build up of fumes.
Please note that the Ivory paint is more susceptible to marking and soot
transference and as a result Chesney‟s cannot be held responsible for marks
made on the stove by the gauntlets or by other means. All paint finishes are
able to be touched up to a factory finish – please see notes on paint
application.
29
11. Stove Paint Application Instructions
Chesney‟s stove paint is quality, fast drying high temperature paint for use on
wood, multi-fuel and gas stoves and other steel and cast iron products with inservice temperatures to 650°C. This product is not recommended for Vitreous
Enamelled surfaces. Stoves, as supplied by the manufacturer, can be
successfully repainted but problems can occur if painting the stove for the
third time. Here it is necessary to remove most of the first two coats in order
that the final paint thickness is not too great. If in doubt please contact
Chesney‟s in advance of using this product for more information.
DIRECTIONS
Allow stove to go out and the surfaces to cool. Scrape off any loose paint.
Lightly sand any existing sound paint to provide key. Remove all dust, dirt,
rust and grease. It is essential that the surface is extremely clean. Protect
surrounding furnishings and carpet from spray mist. This aerosol is designed
to work at room temperature (20-25°C) and should be stored inside for several
hours prior to use. Before spraying, shake can vigorously for 3 minutes after
mixing ball rattles. This is especially important when using light colours as
these have more pigments to mix.
For best results the appliance also needs to have been stored in an
environment to room temperature (20-25°C) for several hours prior to the
painting process commencing. If painting steel flue sections then these will
also need to be pre-heated. Ensure work area is well ventilated and you are
not spraying near naked flames or any incandescent materials. Point spray
nozzle towards object. Hold can between 300-375mm (12”- 15”) from surface
to be painted. Press spray firmly. Use steady even strokes. Several thin coats
give a better finish than one heavy coat. Do not apply more paint than is
necessary. If clogging develops, remove spray nozzle with a twisting motion
and clean. Never stick pins or sharp objects
into the can. Gently replace spray nozzle with a twisting motion pointing away
from you. After use, invert can and spray for a few seconds until no paint, only
clear solvent, escapes. This will clean the tube and spray nozzle and allow for
easier future use. During the painting process, while drying and for the first 3
times you use your appliance, open windows, doors and if necessary use fans
to provide a fresh airflow, as the paint will give off fumes and smoke during the
curing process. Cure Process: Use kindling only on the first two fires which
should burn for 15-20 minutes with the second burn being started whilst the
appliance is still warm. A full fire should be burnt for 45 · 60 minutes, again
starting while the appliance is still warm, then allowed to cool naturally. Your
paint should have now cured and no longer give off fumes or smoke. These
application instructions must be followed strictly for successful application of
Chesney‟s stove paint and the company can not be held responsible for
incorrect storage, preparation, application and usage.

12. First Lighting and Operation
This appliance is not to be used as an incinerator. Only HETAS approved
wood logs and smokeless fuels are recommended by Chesneys for use in this
appliance.
This appliance is design to operate with the door closed, except for lighting
and reloading, failure to close the door during operation will result in fume
spillage.
Warning Note:
Properly installed, operated and maintained this appliance will not emit
fumes into the dwelling. Occasional fumes from de-ashing and refuelling may occur. However, persistent fume emission is potentially
dangerous and must not be tolerated. If fume emission does persist, the
following immediate actions should be taken:Open doors and windows to ventilate room then leave the premises
Let the fire out or eject and safely dispose of fuel from the appliance.
Check for flue or chimney blockage, and clean if required.
Do not attempt to relight the fire until the cause of the fume emission
has been identified and corrected. If necessary seek expert advice.
Your installer should have fitted a CO alarm in the same room as the
appliance. If the alarm sounds unexpectedly, follow the instructions
given under “Warning Note” above.
Note
Before lighting please note the following points:
Chesneys stoves must only use HETAS approved wood fuels and smokeless
coal.
Do not use any liquid fuels.
Do not over load your stove.
Never empty the ash when the fire is alight.
Do not burn solid fuel and wood at the same time. Wood burns from the top
down, whereas solid fuel burns from the bottom up, therefore there is a
conflict of air supply for complete combustion of your fuel.
The fuel selector must always be either wood or solid fuel. Do not set half
way.
Always use the glove provided to operate the handle and controls.
This appliance will get very hot and fireguards must be used where
appropriate.
31
The Wood Range 4 and 5 Series.
These are designed for wood burning only although, there is a “drop in multi
fuel-grate” available to convert to coal burning from your stockist.
There is one Air Control Lever - The Air Flow Bar that automatically distributes
the air for combustion into the top or rear of the furnace.
Pull the bar out for more air giving more heat and a faster burn.
Push the bar in for less air giving less heat and a slower burn.
The Multi-Fuel Range 6 and 8 Series
These are designed for use with wood and solid fuel.
They have the following controls:
Fuel selector lever.

34
Double Sided 10 Series Wood Burning Stove
The Double Sided10 has a single air control lever; this controls both primary
and secondary air into the stove.
With the control rod fully out the maximum air is entering the stove at the top
(pre heated air wash) and at the base of the firebox. When the control rod is
pushed in the air is reduced proportionally between the air wash and base of
the firebox to achieve the best “burn”. When the control rod is fully in there is
still a small amount of air entering the stove via the air wash.
The “front “of the stove is considered the side with the control rod, the rear has
a double glazed door and will radiate less heat, these doors can be swapped
round.
Baffle
The main baffle and secondary baffle are one piece and are removed as one
piece. It is removed by folding in the side bricks, it can then be removed
through the front or the rear of the stove.
Take care as there will be sooty deposits on the top of the baffle.
The baffle must be fully removed before sweeping through the stove.
The vermiculite floor, side, rear and baffle are consumable these will need to
be replaced as required.
To remove these consumables:
1. Lift out the log retainer‟s 2 in number.
2. Remove the floor brick.
3. Hold the weight of the baffle and fold in one side brick.
4. Fold in the other side brick.
5. Remove the baffle (there will be sooty deposits on top of the baffle).
6. The two side bricks can now be removed.
To replace simply reverse the above instructions
35
Wood Burning 12 Series
The 12 series has a single air control lever; this controls both primary and
secondary air into the stove.
With the control rod fully out the maximum air is entering the stove at the top
front (air wash) and through the rear bricks. When the control rod is pushed in
the air is reduced proportionally between the air wash and the rear brick to
give the best “burn”. When the control rod is fully in there is still air entering
the stove via the air wash. Before lighting the stove ensure the baffle by-pass
is free to operate.
The air inlet manifold must not be blocked.
When the air inlet is connected to the outside and the door is closed fresh air
is delivered into the stove for combustion and not taken from the room. When
the door is opened this air is drawn into the furnace via vents on the front face
of the stove, with the baffle bypass automatically operating when the door is
opened any spillage is reduced to a negligible amount.
If using the air inlet manifold the ducting must be metal and fit over the air
inlet.
If the air inlet manifold is not being used a 50 mm gap must be maintained at
all times.
36
Baffle
The baffle is made up of 4 main parts.
The secondary baffle is secured to the top underside of the stove using the
slots provided, it‟s removed by sliding to the rear of the stove.
The main baffle rests on top of the side bricks. It is removed by “folding” in the
side bricks, it can then be removed through the front of the stove.
The bypass baffle is held in place by two retaining brackets and is free to
swing under its own weight. The baffle linkage closes this baffle when the door
is closed.
If there is a build up of soot/tar on the top of this baffle it will stick, a gentle
nudge on the front of this small baffle should free it. If you need to remove this
baffle gently push it up 15-20mm twist to the right and remove through the
hole in the main baffle, replacing is the operation reversed. The baffle by-pass
is subject to extreme temperature changes and might not always sit flush with
the main baffle when the stove is cold
37
The Baffle By-pass can be adjusted by undoing the M6 nut and rotating the
baffle actuation rod in or out, then retighten the M6 nut. Close the door and
check the position of the Baffle By-pass, it should fit flush to the main baffle
when the stove is cold. The Baffle by-pass will not fit flush with the main baffle
when the stove is under fire.
The baffle must be removed completely before sweeping through the stove,
do not sweep the flue though the baffle by-pass.
The vermiculite floor, side, rear and baffle are consumable these will need to
be replaced as required.
To remove these consumables:
1. Lift out the log retainer.
2. Remove the floor bricks (3 in number).
3. Remove the steel u shaped brick support.
4. Remove the by-pass baffle (refer to page 4).
5. Fold in one side brick taking the weight of the main baffle.
6. Fold in the other side brick and remove the main baffle.
7. The two side bricks can now be removed.
To replace simply reverse the above instructions.
38
Lighting
Open the door place a firelighter at the back of the furnace put 6-8 pieces of
kindling on top of the firelighter. Place 2 split logs on top of the kindling, set
the Air Flow Bar to setting III fully extended. Light the firelighter. If
condensation appears on the glass when the door is closed leave ajar and it
should clear in a minute or two. Do not leave stove unattended when door is
open.
The side and back bricks will go black, when they go clear about 12-20
minutes the fire can be turned down using the Air Flow Bar to the desired
setting (normally between setting I and II ). The quality of your fuel and
chimney draft will dictate your setting.
Refuelling on to a low fire bed
If there is insufficient burning material in the fire bed to ignite fresh fuel,
excessive smoke emission can occur. Refuelling must be carried out on a
sufficient quantity of glowing embers and ash so that the fresh fuel charge will
ignite in a reasonable period. If there are too few embers in the fire bed, add
suitable kindling to prevent excessive smoke
Fuel overloading
The maximum amount of fuel specified in this manual should not be
exceeded, overloading can cause excess smoke.
Operation with door left open
Operation with the door open can cause excess smoke. The appliance must
not be operated with the appliance door left open except as directed in the
instructions.
Refuelling
Always refuel on a hot bed of ash.
Pull Air Flow Bar fully out to setting III. Slowly open the door with the glove
provided equalising the pressure inside the fire cube with the room (if you
open the door quickly ash will be lifted from the furnace into the room). Place
2-3 logs bark side down onto a bed of hot ashes and close the door. When the
logs have fully turned black set Air Flow Bar to desired setting.
Solid Fuel
The grate should be cleaned out before every lighting using the riddle lever.
Set fuel selector to solid fuel (forward position).
Open door, place 2 firelighters at the back of the fire cube and place
approximately 1 – 1.5kg of solid fuel onto the firelighter and set the Air Flow
Bar to setting III fully extended. Light firelighter and close door, if condensation
appears on the glass when the door is closed leave ajar. Do not leave stove
unattended when the door is open.
39
The majority of air for combustion in the coal setting comes from under the
grate below the fuel. This action reduces the ability of the air wash system and
some blackening of the glass may occur.
When the solid fuel has an even glow over the fuel bed set Air Flow Bar to
desired setting.
Over-Firing
In the event of over firing the stove (flue collar, top of stove or log retainer
glowing red/orange) push the air control in fully (with gloves provided) this will
shut the appliance down. Over-firing will damage the stove and is not covered
under the warranty. Over-firing can be caused by: over filling the appliance
with fuel, burning on maximum setting for prolonged periods, or with the use of
non recommended fuels.
In the event of a chimney fire push the air control in fully to prevent air getting
to the fire and call the fire and rescue services. Do NOT use the appliance or
chimney until inspected by a registered installer/chimney sweep.
If a fire is "uncontrollable" when the air control lever is in check and the door is
closed properly, allow the stove to cool and perform a paper test as outlined
on page 21.
This appliance is designed to radiate heat. Do not stand too close to the
appliance for prolonged periods of time, loose clothing, man made fibres and
soft furnishings are at particular risk of burning.
When using the appliance in situations where children, aged or infirm persons
are present a fireguard must be used to prevent contact and be manufactured
in accordance with BS 8423 fireguards for use with solid fuel appliances.
Chimney Fire Action
If the chimney is thoroughly and regularly swept, chimney fires should not
occur. However, if a chimney fire does occur push the air control lever fully in
turning “off” the stove tightly close the doors of the stove. This should cause
the chimney fire to go out. If the chimney fire does not go out when the above
action is taken then the fire brigade should be called immediately. Do not
relight the stove until the chimney and flue-ways have been cleaned and
examined by a professional.
40
13. Maintenance
Guarantee
Your Chesneys stove comes with a 5 year guarantee on the stove body and a
12 month warranty on the non consumable parts such as the door, handle,
hinges and air plates.
Consumable items such as fire bricks, baffles, glass, rope seal, ash pans and
grids are consumable items and are not covered by a warranty. These items
will deteriorate over time and will need replacing. The length of time that these
parts last will depend on the type of fuel used, and how hot and long the stove
is left to run. The firebricks, rope seal and primary baffles are subjected to a
huge amount of stress while the stove is under fire and will appear stressed
quite quickly and the bricks can sometimes crack. This does not mean their
integrity is compromised and they will have plenty of life left in them.
There must not be at any time an extractor fan fitted in the same room as the
appliance as this will cause fumes to emit into the room. (seek guidance from
a competent person if this is unavoidable)
The chimney must be swept at least once a year for smokeless fuels/wood
and a minimum of twice a year for bituminous coal.
Ensure adequate access to cleaning doors is maintained where it is not
possible to sweep the chimney through the appliance.
If the chimney is believed to have a served an open fire installation previously,
it is possible that the higher flue gas temperature from a closed appliance may
loosen deposits that were previously firmly adhered, with the consequent
risk of flue blockage.
It is therefore recommended that the chimney be swept a second time within a
month of regular use after installation.
If the stove is to be left unused for a prolonged period of time then it should be
given a thorough clean to remove ash and unburned fuel residues. To enable
a good flow of air through the appliance to reduce condensation and
subsequent damage, leave the air controls fully open.
It is important that the flue connection, any appliance baffles or throat plates and
the chimney are swept prior to lighting up after a prolonged shutdown period
No aerosol are to be used near the stove when it is alight.
To maintain the effectiveness and efficiency of your stove it should be
serviced or inspected annually by a competent person. This should entail
checking these consumable parts.
Door seal: still effective
41
Glass seal: still effective
Glass not cracked.
Fire Bricks: sound. Replace any that have cracks greater than 3mm
Baffles: not warped or distorted
Grates: not warped and functioning.
Log retainer not damaged or warped.
All controls free and smooth to operate.
The installation and flue connection should be checked and the chimney
swept annually.
Only genuine Chesneys replacement parts should be used and are available
from your local stockist.
To find your local stockist log on to: www.chesneys.co.uk/stockists.asp or
phone 0844 880 8375.
Cleaning
The body of the stove should be vacuumed with a brush attachment; any
marks should be wiped with a very lightly damp cloth.
The glass can be cleaned with damp newspaper dipped in the wood ash, or
use a proprietary glass cleaner, no abrasives should be used.
Always ensure the ash is cold before de ashing. Do not let the ash build up to
the underside of the grate as this will lead to damage. On the 4 and 5 series
stoves lift out the log retainer and scoop out the ash from the base of the fire
cube. On the 6 and 8 series stoves carefully remove the ash pan from under
the grate using the ash pan tool provided and dispose ash in a suitable
receptacle. Replace the ash pan close the door and use the riddling
mechanism to drop the rest of the ash into the ash pan, open door and
remove the ash pan as before.
42
Useful Information
Always use the glove provided when operating or refuelling.
The better the quality of fuel you use the better the efficiency,
controllability and clean burn you will experience.
Aim to get the stove and chimney up to normal operating temperature
as quickly as possible.
Do not turn down the stove down too early.
Fully blacken the logs before turning down.
Always reload on a hot bed of ash.
Let the ash build up when burning wood 25-35mm deep is ideal.
Always clean out the grate when burning solid fuel (coal).
The heat output will differ with different types of fuel.
Cracks and splits do occur in the firebricks if they are less that 3mm in
size, they should pose no problems.
Atmospheric conditions do have an effect on your chimney and
subsequently the stove. Some of these conditions will cause your
stove to “blow back” into the room, or even prove difficult to light. If
these symptoms persist please contact you installer, who will be able
to advise if your flue arrangement needs to be reviewed or a new
specialised cowl installed.
Over tightening the door can damage the rope seal and the handle
mechanism.
