FAULTY ITEMS

C1: Should the appliance develop a fault please initially refer to the fault finding / troubleshooting section in the manufacturer’s instructions to see whether you are able to resolve the problem yourself (e.g. Blown fuse on plug with electric fire, battery flat on remote control etc).

C2: If the fire is still WITHIN the particular manufacturer’s guarantee period please contact us to arrange a prompt, free, visit from a service engineer from that relevant fire manufacturer. If the goods are found not to be faulty and the problem is to do with the installation etc, the manufacturers have the right to incur a call-out charge to the customer. Any costs then incurred must then be resolved between the customer & there own engineer.

C3: All appliances are covered by the terms & conditions of the manufacturer’s guarantee – This will be stated on the product page of the relevant item. Their guarantee will exclude any faults caused by misuse, damage, accident, neglect or normal wear & tear.

C4: FLAVEL gas fires offer a 7 year guarantee on the provision that the gas fire has been annually serviced & the flame failure device has been replaced & a receipt from the customers own Gas Safe engineer verifies this. Please refer to FLAVEL directly for their terms & conditions.

C5: ALL gas fires produce some levels of carbon soot which can be created when the flame hits the fuel bed. This can be more apparent on lighter coloured fuel beds or “pebbles / Driftwood”. This is NOT a fault & is totally HARMLESS. The soot will burn off as soon as the fire is re-ignited. This can be reduced by carefully rearranging the “coals” or “pebbles” so that flame tips are not hitting corners of the “coals” or “pebbles” and also the occasional removal & gentle brushing to remove the carbon soot. We cannot be held responsible for any losses or damages should this occur.
