  1. Well, our Stoves Vanette CG7000 is falling apart, and we can't afford to replace it. It was original equipment on the boat, which makes it 21 years old. A few months after we took possession in November 2016 we noticed that the oven wasn't cooking food in anywhere near the expected time. Investigation showed that the flame didn't get any higher regardless of the control knob setting, suggesting the thermostat had failed. We've learned to live with that - you just have to allow approximately 4x the stated cooking time because it seems stuck on low setting, which means planning two or more hours in advance if you want to cook a pie or something. Yesterday though, i had trouble keeping the grill alight, the flame died as soon as i released the knob. A bit of manipulation with the thermocouple suggests this is the fault because after a little bit of gentle pushing and poking i got the thing working again - but if it is disturbed the flame dies. I looked around the internet last year and could find little in the way of spare parts for this cooker, and the one oven thermostat i found was several hundred £. Does anybody know where parts for this model can still be sourced, and also of any documentation in the way of maintenance manuals anywhere around the Web? EDIT: the relevant model is possibly a GG7000, because this is all i can find on the Web, which means the original fitters misprinted this in the boat manual.
  2. I am looking for some advice one a less than perfect situation. I spent my summer doing up a narrowboat that I now live on as a continuous cruiser, however the Stove now seems to be giving me grief in making my Asthma unbearable and I have recently been travelling back to my parents just to breath. There seems to be really differing schools of thought on this, but I seem to have a theory of what may be happening. My stove seems to have a decent draw (bare in mind I have nothing to compare this to as it's my first stove) but As the flue Pipe I have used is vitreous enamel and barely a mm thick I wondered whether as I shut it down for the night, after sometime (in the early hours I pressume) the flue may be cooling due to it's lack of thickness and letting some of the gases drop and enter the room via the tiny gaps in the vents. The chap at my local chandlery is really helpful and believes that if it's not setting any of my co2 alarms off then it's probably nothing to worry about and is not convinced that changing my flue will work but suggested changing coal instead. He also handed me a smoke test match to test for any leaks but I think this is unlikely as I sealed everything as best I could. In another local stove shop the bloke at the desk practically threw a catalogue in my face and said 'nothing less than this £800 double insulated flue would do', I left as briskly as I entered. If anyone has any experience of breathing troubles or flue pipe tekkers and knowledge I would really like to hear it as I desperately want to stay on my boat. thanks, Pete
  3. This may well be covered elsewhere, in which case my apologies, but I've not found it yet. We have just changed boats, and the new one has a Squirrel stove. Under the ash lip there is a lever for secondary ventilation. It appears to be stuck, as it moves perhaps 3mm left or right from a central position. Reading the Morso manual and going online to their site hasn't given any more insight into what is probably an embarrassingly simple thing to solve. Help please.

  5. Hi whilst in a garage today I came across wood coal it was an asian selling it so he demanded a huge sum of money because he did not know the price! (he wanted £16.95 for 15 kilos its £9.99 for 20 kilos delivered) Anyway googled it when I got back and it turns out to be brown coal which I used to burn in Scotland. does anyone use this? and is their a supplier in south yorkshire? found national suppliers but would rather just pick up a bag as it says it can be used in a woodburner Cheers Peter
  6. Hello Canal Forum Folks This is my first post so, first off, hello. Let me introduce my boat. She's called Barnacle and is an aluminium hulled 28 foot former liveboat that runs off a solar and wind powered electric engine. I wonder if any of you folks could give me some advice about whether to install a back-boiler or not. I have a both a woodstove and a Mikuni diesel heater but, annoyingly the Mikuni only works when its sunny or windy. (When there is enough renewable energy to provide the battery power the Mikuni starter motor requires). In the winter my woodburner is often my only source of heat. I need to replace my woodburner because it has cracks in and I was wondering about replacing it with a woodburner with a back-boiler so that I would get hot water as well as heat in the winter. The backboiler would presumably be fitted with a 12v pump to feed water into my calorifier. I've asked every boat owner I know and I've got a lot of conflicting advice. Some say that back-boilers are troublesome and dangerous, others love them. Do you have any advice? I am particularly concerned about the safety aspect. My 12v batteries are often rather low on power in the darkest months of winter. The pump that pumps water from the back-boiler to the calorifier would need to rely on these batteries. The stove is in the lowest part of the boat so there is no possibility of installing a gravity feed radiator as a heat sink if the pump should fail. Any thoughts would be gratefully received All the best Gi (and Barnacle)
  7. Recently 'inherited' an antique wood/coal burning stove; never used one before and cannot find any instructions for it; any advice please? Thanks. It was made by L.LANGE. Don't know how to 'set it' or what the dials on the front do. The top one seems fixed and doesn't turn, the bottom one does. How do I use this stove safely and what maintenance is required? Any info appreciated.
  8. hi everyone, I'm trying to find long Double skin chimney, ideally over 28" (28" would do too). The longest I was able to find were 24" but that would keep my flue just around 2m altogether, I would prefer it a little bit longer. Could anyone recommend a chandlery which stocks these? Thanks!
  9. Website Name: Chivers Stove Centre - Devizes Website URL: http://ww.chiversstovecentre.co.uk Any other comments: Agents for Aarrow and Villager Stoves. They also stock spare parts for other popular stoves. e.g. 2014, Squirrel 1430 glass £30 - fitting £20.
  10. Just letting anybody who might be interested know that we have a Chilli Penguin Chillie Billie woodburning stove and kettle rest in Mojave Red for sale. We are rearranging the internal rooms on our boat and we no longer have room for it. We are selling the stove only, not the flue (that's already gone). We bought the stove about one year ago and have used it a fair bit. I will give it a clean up before it goes. I can deliver it to the Wirral, Liverpool or the south Lancashire area. Alternatively, anybody can come and pick it up; we are usually between Burscough Bridge and Appley Bridge at this time of year. Anyway, here is the company site with all the info on the stove: http://www.chillipenguin.co.uk/product-range/stove-range/chilli-billie/ We are looking for £450 for it. I have attached a couple of photos of it in situ. Apologies for the quality, my 'phone is pretty terrible. Cheers Ava
  11. We bought our boat in November last year, and amongst many other things had the jets on the cooker checked and cleaned. We have a Vanette hob and a Vanette cooker, i can't give the model number atm because am not on the boat, but it's the equipment originally fitted to the boat in 1997. The oven has never really produced enough heat to cook efficiently requiring extra cooking time, but recently it's got worse to the point where it's not much use for cooking anything requiring high temperatures, merely for warming things up. I've done a bit of investigating and there are two separate gas pipes inside the cupboards, one leading to the hob and one to the oven and grill. Now curiously, not only does the hob work well, but so does the grill. It's only the oven that doesn't perform satisfactorily. We've cleaned the holes in the gas jet matrix to the best of our ability but to no avail. Now the thought did strike me that the oven is the only part of these appliances that would employ a thermostat, so maybe it's this that's at fault, but i'm not sure if or how this could be replaced. Certainly there is no noticeable to change to the flame when turning the control knob up from low to high. Another possible clue is that our surveyor noted that the gas regulator looked to be over ten years old and that it is good practice to replace every five years; however, our boat passed the BSS test a few months after purchase and, as previously mentioned, sufficient gas seems to reaching both the hob and grill for them to run satisfactorily. Any ideas?
