Back boiler not heating rads


Frequent Poster
Leper is correct of course but so many people including myself like the back boiler stove, they require some cleaning of course, in my case three times a year does it with the wire brush and scrapers, a dirty job of course, daily glass cleaning and removal of ashes etc, chimney cleaning etc but I would not be without it, I've often said its almost a lifestyle decision, they can be dirty, there is maintenance, waiting for fuel delivery and so on but I'd have it ahead of gas ( which is also in the house )

I've found many owners are like the OP and have little understanding of the operation of a stove, they require tweaking to get the operation the way you'd want it, ours rarely goes out especially during cold spells.
