Multi fuel stove paint problem

Post by Trimmer44 » Sun Dec 20, 2015 4:42 pm

Hi all, I've just finished installing our stove at home. I lit it and went to make a cuppa! Wen i went back into the lounge i i noticed the paint peeling on the stove and a smoke coming off the surface. Its a second hand hunter hawk and i was told it was painted last year, I'm dubious now and wondering it must have been painted in normal paint as my room was filling with this smoke! In Know the installation is fine and my co alarm is still showing 0ppm but the temp it shows is rising! Any ideas on wether this paint is rite or not??

Strip all the paint and re paint with the correct paint.
Fret not, a forum is a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link to find out more.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

You get paint specifically for stoves and flues. It stinks a wee bit after the first fire has been lit but doesn't peel off!!
Carpentry,I can explain it to you but I cannot understand it for you.
