  1. If it is the older style with a long rather than wide firebox,
    and tiles along the side, then the following should get you
    started. It may also be relevant to later models …

    The lever above the door that moves sideways controls the damper
    at the rear of the firebox, which has to be to the right (opens the
    damper and moves an interlock metal tab to the right) to allow the
    door to be opened. The small lever at the top front on the right
    hand side sets the air intake in 3 steps, to the rear for maximum
    air, to the front for minimum. When the damper opens the interlock
    mentioned above should pop the intake lever back to maximum.

    I have experienced 2 well used units, and the damper lever
    linkages on both have been in bad shape. This means to close the
    damper (lever to left) properly may require a bit of technique, see

    To start, damper lever to right, open door; my technique is to
    feed in plenty of screwed up paper, then a layer of twigs or
    kindling, then a couple of decent bits of timber on top. At the
    very last, a few screwed up sheets of newspaper at the very front
    filling up the door, gets everything happening fast. Light this
    newspaper in a couple of places, then immediately almost fully
    close the door, leaving it ajar about 3cms of so. The fire should
    take off like a rocket; move the door in or out to adjust how
    ferocious it is. What you want is for the chimney at the base to
    get pretty hot, and to see that decent pieces of timber are well
    and truly burning. Then close the door properly, using the lever;
    don’t over-tighten as the catch is a bit flimsy and will bend if
    you overdo it.

    At this point the damper is open, air intake is maximum. As soon
    as the fire appears to be really stable close the damper, which may
    need some fiddling — to do this, move the lever to the left, then
    slide the interlock tab with your finger to the left, then move the
    lever again to the left with a bit of a jerk. When the damper
    closes properly it will make a bit of a clang; if your unit has
    this problem you’ll probably have to experiment a bit to get the
    technique right.

    If the fire dies down at this point you’ve been too eager to
    close the damper: damper lever to right, open the door a touch to
    get it going once more, and try again.

    With the damper closed the wood is being burnt in the most
    efficient way, giving off the most heat for the wood used; the only
    thing to worry about then is the air intake. Lever to the back for
    maximum heat, towards the front slows the burning rate, and if you
    fill the firebox last thing at night the front setting should give
    you a still usable fire in the morning!

    Depending upon the type of wood burning and the air intake
    setting, you need to be careful opening the door: do it too quickly
    and you will have smoke pouring out into the room! Only open it a
    few cms or so initially, and leave the fire to stabilise a bit
    before opening further. This is also the way to get the fire going
    again if it suffocates (firebox fills with smoke)

    Good luck!
