  1. No right but maybe an expectation.
  2. My stove had cracked glass. I managed to undo the screws. Maybe with wd40, can't remember. Replacement glass was from a stove glass supplier, a google search should take you to some of them and they should supply stove suitable glass. Check their descriptions. I replaced my cracked glass after approx 10 years and it has been fine for the last 5. I did say if about the screws but it worked for me. I checked my history and we replaced our glass in 2018. It was cut to be stove specific and cost under £25. The glass spec was quoted as - All of our glass is manufactured by Schott Robax, a leading manufacturer in Heat Resistant Glass. The very low thermal expansion of SCHOTT ROBAX® glass-ceramic resists extremely high temperatures of up to 760° Okay if you can remove the screws but maybe not otherwise. What stove are you looking to replace the glass for?

  4. It doesn't feel like that where I am. Dry a lot of the time but some very heavy rainfall as well. I'm in South Lancashire.
  5. It was mentioned earlier in the thread that there might be a lot of rain, and therefore water, in the North West region in general but they might have been keeping reservoir levels lower to avoid another reservoir incident. If they are lower to start with then a bit less rain for a period will result in them being lower than usual.
  6. If you can loosen the bolts/screws and remove the glass you can usually order a direct replacement glass (for popular stoves) or measure it and get the glass cut to size. Appreciate this might not help if postage to an address isn't easy for you. Just Google replacement stove glass.
  7. That's what I have and shown in the picture above. As long as you have the side iron liners with a small gap between them to the stove sides ( feel round the top of the sides) that's how they are meant to be . And worked fine for me for many years
  8. A dipstick would be useful, not just to prevent oil spurts. Mine took a lot less oil than I was expecting would be needed on the first full change and I could have easily overfilled without a check.
  9. This is the inside of our stove. The iron "bricks" are still sound after approx 15 years.
  10. We have a firewarm 4 which has been in use with mainly smokeless fuel for many years. It doesn't have traditional fire bricks. It has thick cast iron bricks at the sides and back with a gap to the actual stove sides.
  11. I'm not an expert at all but on a number of threads 12.7v is shown as what you might expect for fully charged batteries at rest. Am I missing something? I just noticed it was 12.17v not 12.7v.
  12. Rechargeable light recommendation https://www.decathlon.co.uk/p/camping-lamp-bl200-rechargeable-200-lumens/_/R-p-324939 It's only a lantern but reasonably decent output and is recharged by usb.
  13. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  14. Bermuda Triangle near Aintree?
