Firstly, we would like to thank you for purchasing a Stanley stove. Secondly, we understand how your Stanley stove is often the centre piece in most living rooms. For this reason we know how important it is to take care of it and keep it clean.
A multi-fuel stove can burn smokeless coal, wood or peat which is why they are sometimes referred to as solid fuel stoves. Multifuel or Solid Fuel stoves are now far easier and cleaner to use than ever before, as most have riddling grates to shake the solid fuel ash into the ashpan and airwash systems to keep the glass clean.
Our Stoves come in 2 different types of exterior 1) enamel which is a glossy vitreous enamel and 2) Senotherm or Matt Black. We will show you how you can clean each of these along with the glass
The vitreous enamel finish on your cooker is tough and hardwearing but should be treated with care. General cleaning must be carried out when the stove is cool. If this stove is finished in a high gloss vitreous enamel, to keep the enamel in the best condition observe the following tips:
Note: You only need to use a dry cloth on your matt black stove to remove any dust or dirt. Do not use any water on the matt black finish as this will cause it to rust.
Typically the glass will clean itself when there is sufficient heat generated by burning fuel. If a build-up of creosote occurs on the glass it may be due to draft conditions, poor quality fuel or very low burning for a long time. Only clean glass when stove is thoroughly cooled.
To clean the glass inner surface, use hot water and a soapy cloth. For stubborn stains use hot water and fine (grade zero) steel wool.
