INTRODUCTION
SAFETY
THE PRINCIPLE OF THE STOVE
A fireguard should be used in the presence of
children and elderly or infirm people.
Please note, This appliance should be used
with the fire door closed at all times except
when re-fuelling or de-ashing.
Your Arada stove is built to the highest
standard of craftsmanship using the best
materials and the most modern equipment
available. It is a highly efficient and sophisticated
piece of machinery and when properly installed
and operated should provide a lifetime of
heating satisfaction.
Do not use aerosol sprays or any other
flammable materials near the appliance
under fire.
Do not fit an extractor fan in the same
room as the appliance.
Fire cement is caustic, hand and eye
protection should always be worn,
prolonged contact with the skin should be
avoided.
Arada Ltd will not be responsible for any
consequential or incidental loss or
injury however caused.
Before continuing any further, with the
installation of this appliance please read the
following guide to manual handling.
 Always obtain assistance when lifting the
appliance
Safety is the most important consideration when
installing your fire. If not properly installed and
operated a house fire may result. Installation
must comply with the Building Regulations and
conform to all safety standards.
Arada produce a variety of appliances
ranging from the traditional to the modern in
style and appearance.
The fire door is fitted with a special high
temperature ceramic glass panel through which
the fire can be viewed.
The stove is lined with firebricks or heat
reflective panels which ensure complete
combustion and provide a good heat store to
even out fluctuations in burning.
 When lifting always keep your back straight,
bend your legs not your back
 Avoid twisting at the waist. It is better to




reposition your feet.
Avoid upper body/top heavy bending. Do
not lean forwards or sideways when
handling the fire
Always grip with the palms of your hands
do not use your fingertips for support
Always keep the stove as close to the body
as possible as this will minimise the
cantilever action.
Use gloves to provide additional grip.
Arada Farringdon Stoves
An internal throat plate produces turbulence to
encourage secondary combustion and direct the
flue gas around the whole upper firebox before
allowing it to escape up the chimney.
Arada stoves are also fitted with an ‘air wash’
so called because it provides a curtain of high
speed preheated air behind the glass to help
keep it clean and provide secondary air/over
draught.

INSTALLATION
GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
HEARTH
Note : All local regulations, including those
referring to National standards need to be complied with, when installing the appliance.
The stove shall be installed on a floor with
adequate load bearing capacity. If the existing
construction does not meet this prerequisite,
suitable measures (e.g.: load distributing plate)
should be taken to achieve it.
Ideally, the appliance should stand on a
constructional hearth of non-combustible
materials not less than 125mm (5”) thick
conforming to Building Regulations.
Dimensions of the hearth should project at least
458mm (18”) forward of the front of the appliance
and 203mm (8”) at the sides.
The surface of the hearth should be free of
combustible materials. In most buildings with solid
concrete or stone floors, the requirement will be
met by the floor itself, but mark the hearth to
ensure floor coverings are kept well away or use
different levels to mark the hearth perimeter.
Any Manufacturer’s Instructions must not
be taken as overriding statutory
requirements.
Before any installation work is undertaken
consideration must be given to the Health
and Safety . Safe working practices should
be followed at all times.
During installation ensure that adequate
precautions are taken to avoid unnecessary risk to
yourself or any householder. In particular the
danger from caustic nature of the fire cement
should be avoided by using these accepted
methods :
 Wear gloves when handling fire cement
 Wear goggles when chiselling or looking up
chimneys.
Make sure that Building Regulations are adhered
to during installation along with any local by-laws.
In the case of heating systems make sure that the
pipe work is correctly bonded to ensure electrical
earth continuity.
ASBESTOS
All Arada stoves contain no asbestos in their manufacture or construction. If there is a possibility of
disturbing any asbestos in the course of
installation, then please seek specialist guidance
and use appropriate protective equipment.
HANDLING
The safe handling guidelines are set out on page 5
of this manual, to make movement easier, internal
fittings, fuel retainers, grates, firebox liners, flue
outlets, hot plates, throat plates etc, can be
removed. Care should be taken to make sure that
the hinges are not damaged during installation.
10
COMBUSTIBLE MATERIALS
Please view the technical data (See page 9) and
observe the minimum distance to combustible
materials, which is applicable to your stove model.
Ideally, adjacent walls should be of suitable non
combustible construction, preferably brickwork. In
large fireplaces take care that any supporting
beam is protected by a 13mm (0.5”) sheet of
Fire proof board spaced 13mm (0.5”) off the surface with strips of non combustible material. Make
sure that there is a gap between an
un-insulated flue system and any combustible
material. This gap must be at least 3X the outside
diameter of the flue pipe, or 1.5X the flue diameter
to non combustible surfaces.
AIR FOR COMBUSTION
There must always be a permanent means of
providing air for combustion into the room in which
the stove is installed. A permanent vent with a total
free area of at least 550mm² for every KW rated
above 5KW should be connected directly to the
outside air or to an adjacent room which itself has
a permanent vent of the same size direct to the
outside air. The positioning of any air vent must be
so that it cannot be liable to blockage or
obstruction. Please note : The fitting of an
extractor fan to either of these rooms is not
recommended. Please see note on page 11.
Arada Farringdon Stoves
INSTALLATION
FITTING THE FLUE OUTLET AND
HOT PLATE (Where Provided)
Note:
Not applicable for units supplied with a fixed
flue outlet spigot
The flue outlet spigot is found packed inside the
appliance . The hot plate (blanking plate) is supplied fitted to the top opening and is removed by
turning clockwise (as is the flue outlet).
Smear a very thin layer of fire cement on the
mating faces of the flue outlet and the hot plate.
Fit the outlet to the appliance in the desired
position.
Lock into place by rotating anti-clockwise and
tighten by tapping with a block of wood and mallet
from inside of the appliance. Similarly, fit the hot
plate (blanking plate) to the unused opening. Clean
off any surplus fire cement.
Place appliance on the hearth and make sure that
it is level and does not rock.
Connect the chimney ensuring all joints are sealed
with fire cement.

FLUES AND CHIMNEYS
The flue draw is critical on any installation and
should be checked to ensure that it matches what
is specified. If it is higher than recommended,
provision must be made to correct the over draw.
The draw can vary in different weather conditions
and the customer should be made aware of this.
Failure to correct an over-drawing flue will
invalidate the warranty.
Please remember that chimney draught is
dependent on four main factors :

Flue gas temperature

Flue height

Flue size

Flue terminal
The stove must be connected to a suitable and
efficient flue so that products of combustion
(fumes) from the stove are expelled to the outside
air. To ensure a good up draught it is important
that the flue gases are kept warm and that the flue
size suits the stove. The termination of the outlet at
the top of the flue also needs to comply with
Local Building Codes.
The minimum effective height of the flue should be
at least 15 feet from the top of the stove to the top
of the flue outlet. When warm the flue draught
should be between 0.1 to 0.2 mb. (1-2 “ H20)
A chimney may comply with regulations but could
still be subject to down draught and similar
problems. A chimney terminating above the ridge
level is generally less likely to suffer such
problems.
If a new chimney is being provided it should fully
comply with the relevant Building Regulations that
specify the requirements for solid fuel burning
installations. Suitable types of chimney include the
following :
Fig. 1. Flue & Spigot Fitting
Important note :
For fixed and removable flue spigot types:The flue pipe must be fitted inside the outlet spigot.
Failure to do so could result in the spillage of
condensation and combustion residues running
down the flue onto the stove canopy.
( See Fig. 1 )

Factory Made Chimney:
A HT type factory-built chimney approved UL103
or ULC 629 with 6 inches diameter (15.24 cm)
Chimney Connector:
The Chimney connector must be 6 inches
diameter and have a minimum thickness of
24 gauge (0.025 inches 0.64 mm)
This must be secured into the flue spigot with
3 screws through the holes provided.
11
INSTALLATION
The flue and chimney installation must be carefully
checked by a competent person before fitting the
stove to ensure it is suitable and will work safely.
If the chimney is old (ie: built of brick or stone
without a liner) or being opened up for reuse
additional checks and smoke testing
should also be carried out to ensure the flue and
chimney are good operating condition.
Check the existing flue is in good condition with
suitable access for collection and removal of
debris. If the flue size is more than 225mm (9”)
diameter or 200mm (8”) X 200mm (8”) square, a
suitable lining of 150mm (6”) diameter should be
fitted, or if the flue length is over 5.5 metres one
size larger than the appliance outlet should be fitted. This should be a double skin stainless steel
flexible liner that is independently certified for use
with solid fuel.
It is also important that suitable flue pipe is used
to connect the stove to the flue in the chimney and
that suitable access is provided into the flue for
regular inspection and sweeping of the flue ways.
The installer should comply with regulation
requirements in respect of providing a Notice Plate
giving details on the chimney, flue lining, hearth
and fireplace installation. Chimneys should be as
straight as possible.
Horizontal runs should be avoided except where
the rear outlet of the appliance ( if available ) is
used, in which case the horizontal section should
not exceed 150mm (6”) in length.
WARNING: When wood is burnt slowly in a
closed appliance it produces moisture , tar and
Creosote which will create condensation and
deposits in the chimney.
This effect can be minimised by burning
hard for a short period, about 20 minutes, twice a
day.
It is usually convenient to do this morning and
night.
If the stove appears to be working hard but produces very little output to the room it is likely that excess draw is present in the chimney, and that heat
is being sucked out of the appliance and up the
chimney.
Important Note:
The chimney connector must not pass through
an attic or roof space, closet or similar
concealed space, or a floor, or ceiling.
Where passage through a wall or partition of
combustible constriction is desired the
installation shall conform to CAN/CSA-B365,
Installation code for Solid Fuel Burning
appliances and equipment
DO NOT CONNECT THIS STOVE
TO A CHIMNEY FLUE SERVING
ANOTHER APPLIANCE
FOR ALL APPLIANCES
Access for cleaning the flue should be
incorporated in the system other than through the
appliance (eg: a soot door or access through
register plate). Purpose made soot doors and
inspection lengths are available from manufacturers
of all systems. Ensure that the whole length of the
flue can be reached from the soot door.
Note: if the appliance is fitted with a draught
stabiliser or if one is fitted to the flue pipe or
chimney in the same room as the appliance,
then the permanent air entry opening (or
Openings) should be increased by 300 mm² for
each KW of rated output.
Note: To avoid chimney problems your fire
should not be burnt slowly for longer than 12
hours without a period of fast burning.
Inspection is advised on a regular basis and
accumulations of more than 3mm removed.

INSTALLATION
FINAL CHECK LIST
Before handing over the installation to the
customer it is recommended that the appliance is
lit and the functioning of the chimney system is
checked for satisfactory operation.

Be sure that the chimney is operating
and ALL smoke and fumes are vented to
the atmosphere through the chimney
terminal.

Check all joints and seals.

Clean the outside of the appliance to
prevent any stains becoming burnt on.

Check the flue draught which should
read 1—2mm, or 0.1—0.2 mbar.

Explain the controls and operation of the
appliance to the customer.
SUMMER STORAGE / NON
USAGE
Please ensure that your stove is left clean and
moving components are well lubricated for the
summer months (during periods of prolonged non
use). If possible store the throat plate outside of the
stove, check all moveable components, at regular
intervals, to ensure they are moving freely.
Allow air movement through the stove, by opening
the air wash and primary air inlet control to about
half way open or leave the door ajar. This will allow
a free flow of air through the appliance thus
preventing moisture and condensation
forming inside the stove and chimney. This
preventative maintenance will ensure your stove
stays in the best condition for the coming winter
months.
The following details must be checked and
completed in full by the installer at the time of
installation. Please answer all questions as fully
as possible. Arada stoves cannot be held
responsible for the chimney or installation.

CLEANING
Important; Under some circumstances soot
can quickly build up on the throat plate and adjacent areas. The throat plate should be removed
and checked monthly, and any debris stripped off.
Similarly, clean the upper surface of the firebox.
Remove the firebrick linings and throat plate,
inspect all rope gaskets on doors, glass etc, and re
-order any items that may need replacing from
your Arada dealer.
With a wire brush clean inside the appliance
paying particular attention to the small inlet holes
of the air wash on the inside, above the fire door.
Sweep the chimney and confirm that it is sound.
Examine all joints in the flue pipe etc, and re-seal if
necessary. Re-assemble and leave with the air
inlet and air wash control about half way open.
This will allow a free flow of air through the
appliance thus preventing moisture and
condensation from building up inside the stove and
chimney.
CHIMNEY SWEEPING
Sweeping should be carried out with an
appropriate sized bristle brush and rods to suit
chimney size and type. As with all appliances
regular sweeping of the flue is essential to avoid
danger of blockage and the escape of poisonous
fumes. Access for cleaning should also be
incorporated in the chimney (e.g. Soot door or
access through the register plate).
Any existing chimney should be swept prior to
installation of the appliance, and swept again a
second time within one month of regular use after
installation to establish frequency of sweeping
required. This should be done by a competent
person such as a chimney engineer who will provide a Certificate Of Chimney Sweeping.
The whole flue way including the outlet must be
swept at least twice per burning season. It is
important that the flue ways, flue pipe and chimney
Arada Farringdon Stoves
be cleaned prior to lighting the fire after a
prolonged shut down period.
DOOR GLASS
The door glass should remain clear during normal
burning. However, under certain conditions, such
as burning at a low rate or damp wood, or overnight burning, the glass may become somewhat
blackened. To remedy this, operate the appliance
at a fast rate. Alternatively:-
WHEN THE STOVE IS COLD
open the door and clean the inside face of the
glass with a damp cloth or with glass cleaner
(available from fire stockists). A piece of cloth
moistened with vinegar and dipped in wood ash
will provide a good soft scourer to remove the soot
without scratching the glass.
Do Not Use Abrasive Cleaners
OUTER FINISH
The outer finish of the appliance is a durable high
temperature paint. It is best cleaned, by brushing
down, with a clean shoe brush. Do not allow
moisture to remain on the appliance whilst cold or
surface rust may form.
The high temperature paint should not require
attention for some time, depending on use. The
hotter the fire burns the sooner repainting will be
necessary. Aerosol tins of paint are available for
complete refurbishing.
Before repainting make sure that the fire is out and
the stove is cold.

Remove the door glass

Lightly wire brush, or rub with wire wool, the
body of the appliance to remove any loose
paint or rust.

Mask or remove items such as brass work.

Any adjacent brickwork, mantelpiece, hearth
etc, should be carefully masked for quite a
distance around the appliance. This
precaution is to prevent discolouration of the
surrounding brickwork or wall paper etc.
Re-spray in a well ventilated area, avoid breathing the vapour. Refer to safety instructions on
paint cans.

When the paint is dry refit the door glass &
any other parts previously removed.

Leave the appliance for eight hours before
lighting a fire.

Burn slowly for the first four hours, then build
up heat slowly to gradually cure paint.

Arada Farringdon Stoves
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
FUEL :
SAFETY NOTICE
The most efficient use of this appliance is with
the fire door closed at all times, apart from
re-fuelling (when alight) or cleaning (when
cold).
NEVER leave the appliance unattended for an
extended length of time with the door open.
WOOD— Any type of wood is suitable provided it
is well seasoned and has a moisture content below
20%. This usually implies that the timber has been
suitably stored to allow moisture to evaporate for at
least nine months in the case of soft woods, and at
least eighteen months in the case of hard wood.
We recommend that for general burning, wood
should be split into logs of no more than 100mm
(4”) diameter and no more than 14” long. The
recommended maximum fuel load is 8lbs
(3.5kg)
WARNING :
NEVER BURN PLASTICS OR HOUSEHOLD WASTE
IN YOUR STOVE.
NEVER BURN LIQUID FUELS OR SOLVENTS IN
YOUR STOVE.
NEVER BURN TREATED WOODS LAMINATES
COLOURED PAPER, CARDBOARD OR TRASH AND
GARBAGE IN YOUR STOVE.
WARNING : wet or unseasoned wood must not
be used as this will greatly contribute to the
creation of tar and creosote which may, in
extreme cases, run down the chimney in liquid
form. This will seriously
damage both the chimney and the appliance,
and increase the risk of a chimney fire.
Do not exceed the maximum log length
detailed in the technical data table on page 9
Please Note : If you have sticky tar inside the
appliance or chimney your wood is ‘Green’ or
too wet.
Please Note : The burn classification for all
appliances in these instructions are classed as
intermittent use.
LIGHTING THE STOVE
Prior to lighting the stove for the first time,
check with the installer that :
 Installation and all building work is complete.
 The chimney is sound and has been swept and
is free from obstruction.
 Adequate provision for combustion air has been
made, i.e. a permanent vent of at least 550mm
sq per KW of rated output above 5KW, is fitted in
the room in which the appliance is installed. That
Local Building Codes have been followed during
installation. See installation section of this
manual.
 All firebox liner panels, throat plate and
insulation blanket are in place.
 That the chimney draw has been checked and is
within specification. With the chimney warm, the
draught should be between 1-2 mm water gauge
or 0.1 to 0.2 mbar.
Refuelling
Re-fuel when the fire has burnt down to a hot
ember bed, place in the desired load (do not
exceed the recommended maximum) close the fire
door and adjust the air control to fully open until
the fire is re-established with a good burn rate,
normally within 10 minutes,
Re-adjust the air control to achieve the desired
heat output burn rate.
WARNING : An over drawing chimney can
cause over firing, resulting in damage to the
appliance.
ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE READ &
UNDERSTOOD THESE INSTRUCTIONS
BEFORE LIGHTING THE FIRE.
ALWAYS WEAR SUITABLE PROTECTIVE FIRE
GLOVES WHEN REFUELLING YOUR STOVE.
DO NOT OPERATE THE STOVE WITH
CRACKED OR BROCKEN DOOR GLASS.
The Farringdon is NOT designed to burn any type of coal
Arada Farringdon Stoves

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
BURNING WOOD
 Set the fire by using rolled up newspaper and
place a layer of dry kindling wood on top of this.
 Use 2 or 3 fire lighters to light the kindling.
 Set the primary air control to the fully open
position. See page 28.
 After the kindling has caught light, you may
leave the fire door ajar by about 20mm. If
required to aid flue draw (Initial lighting on a
very cold day for example)
 The flue draw should be established after 5
minutes, and the kindling well burnt down to
form an ember bed.
 Carefully load the stove with a little more
kindling and well seasoned wood.
Avoid building up fuel close to the door glass.
Keep fuel behind the fuel retainer well inside
the firebox, and then close the fire door
 After 5 minutes, regulate the Primary
air control, typically reduce to approximately
half way.
 Refuel as necessary
The exact position of the air control will vary
according to installation factors and some
experimentation will be required to acquire the
optimum position for burning
The primary air control (Left) should be used to
vary the burn rate. 3/4 open will produce
approximately 12 kwh for a 3.8kg load (1 hour
burn time to refuelling) dependant on fuel quality
and moisture content
Please Note : The high temperature paint acquires
durability by being “cured” during the initial firings
of the appliance. It will give off fumes which are
non toxic, but certain persons may find they have
an unpleasant or irritant effect. Ensure that the
surrounding area is well ventilated during this time.
Please Note : To avoid chimney problems your
appliance should not be burnt at a reduced burn
rate without a period of fast burning.
26
Note:
Do not operate this stove with the fire
door open other than for re-fuelling or
de-ashing
Take care to avoid damaging the door
glass by excessive slamming of the
door, or striking with hard objects.
WARNING : Properly installed, with a suitable
flue or chimney, operated and maintained correctly,
this appliance will not emit fumes into the dwelling.
Occasional fumes when de-ashing and re-fuelling
may occur. However, persistent fume emission is
potentially dangerous and must be investigated by
a registered expert installer.
Stop using the appliance if you smell fumes or
see smoke escaping.
If fume emission does persist, the following
immediate actions should be taken :
 Open doors and windows to ventilate room.
 Let the fire die or extinguish and safely dispose
of fuel from the appliance.
 Check for flue or chimney blockage, and clean
if required.
Seek expert advice
Arada Farringdon Stoves
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
OVER FIRING & CHIMNEY FIRES
DO NOT over fire your appliance. Using flammable liquids or too much wood or firing the stove
at maximum for prolonged periods may result in
over-firing. If the chimney connector or casing
glows red the appliance is being over-fired this
may result in a chimney fire. If this occurs :
 Call the Fire Service
 Immediately close all of the air inlets to the
appliance, to reduce the air supply to the
stove.
 Move items of furniture and combustibles
away from the stove, to reduce a risk of fire
and to allow access for the fire service.
WARNING : The ash can be very hot. Empty
only into a metal container. Even if the ash
appears cold, red-hot pieces of ash may be
concealed and could easily start a fire or cause an
injury
TO EMPTY THE ASH PAN
The Farringdon stove is supplied with a unique ash
pan. To empty or remove the ash pan, open the
fire door, wearing a safety glove, draw out the ash
pan and unfold the lifting handle of the ash pan
and remove from the ash pit chamber.
Empty the ash into a suitable steel container with a
tight fitting lid.
Replace the ash pan into the stove and close the
fire door.
 Ensure access to the loft space is available.
 Evacuate the property.
The chimney fire may cause structural damage to
the chimney. Do not use the appliance until the
chimney and connector have been inspected and
any damaged parts have been repaired or
replaced. This should be done by a
registered engineer.
Farringdon Ash Pan
ASH REMOVAL
The appliance will require ash to be removed
periodically but an ash bed of approximately 20mm
(3/4”) should be maintained. Ash may be removed
with a small shovel whilst the fire is still lit by raking
the embers of a low fire to one side of the firebox
and carefully removing the ash, then repeating the
procedure for the other side. Care must be taken
not to risk burning of hands or household objects
from falling embers.
The ash pan should be emptied at least twice a
day or when the level of ash reaches the top of the
ash pan. On no account should the ash be allowed
to build up to touch the underside of the grate bars,
as this will greatly reduce the life span of the grate.
When burning wood it is acceptable to maintain
an ash bed on top of the grate of approximately
20mm (3/4”) without any un-due effect upon the
grate bars.
