This appliance is a great option if you are in the market for a multi-fuel stove that’s suitable for a normal-sized living room, boasts a modern design and is suitable to use in cities. It is also available at a very reasonable price.
Part and parcel of being a wood-burning stove owner is taking your appliance apart in order to clean it properly or replace parts that have become worn or warped over time.
Removing all the internal parts is the easy part; replacing them can be a little more difficult if you’re not sure about what you’re doing.
With that in mind, we have put together this video guide to assembling one of most popular stoves, the Mazona Rocky 6 kW multi-fuel stove, to help you put it back together quickly and easily.
If you would prefer photos and written instructions from which to work, here they are.
Step 1: Put the bottom grate and back plate in place
Starting with an entirely empty firebox, restore the bottom grate and back plate to their positions. The bottom grate is placed just above the area in which the ashpan will eventually be placed. There are ridges at the front and back of the stove on which the grate will sit.
The back plate should be placed inside the firebox at an angle. It should then be positioned so that it is standing up at the back of the firebox.
Step 2: Put the side panels and baffle plate
With the slanted edge facing towards the back of the stove, place the first side liner in position.
Next, take the baffle plate and place it at the top of the firebox. For now, use the first side liner and the back plate to support it.
Now, add the second side panel. As with the first, the slanted side faces the back of the stove.
Step 3: Add the screws, washers and nuts to the back plate
Add the screws, washers and nuts to each side of the back plate.
Now lower the baffle plate down from its temporary position so that it rests on the screws.
If you want to give your fireplace a refresh without breaking the bank, buying a new fire fret is a great way of completely changing the look of your fire for a very small price.
Laura Campbell, of the pocket_home_renovation Instagram account, used our Bauhaus fire fret to do just that.
With little more than the new fire front, which is available from our online shop for just £32.50 at the time of writing, and a can of spray paint, Laura upcycled her dated 1990s fireplace to give it a much stronger and more modern appearance.
Whenever we compile lists of our best-selling woodburners, there is usually a very strong contingent from the Mazona Stoves collection.

It goes without saying that a wood-burning stove can be used to burn wood (the clue is in the name). But what isn’t immediately apparent is that there are some woods that you shouldn’t burn on a woodburner.
For a variety of reasons, there are woods that are best avoided when you are choosing the fuel for your stove. Here are some types of wood we would advise you not to burn on a woodburner. Continue reading →
When you buy a new wood-burning stove, it will normally be covered by a guarantee. The nature of the guarantee varies between different stove manufacturers.
What is covered by a stove guarantee?
Usually, the stove guarantee will cover only the stove body itself. So, if the main construction of the stove starts to fall apart or deteriorate in any way, it would ordinarily be covered by the guarantee. Continue reading →
No wood-burning stove installation is complete with a trusty tube of high temperature silicone sealant.
For obvious reasons, you will want to make sure that the stove and flue is correctly sealed before starting to use it. Any gases and smoke produced by your woodburner need to be burnt in the firebox when flammable, then make their way up your flue pipe.
To avoid smoke seeping into your room, you don’t want any gaps through the components of your stove system where it might get out. Equally, to avoid causing damage to your stove and get the most value from the fuel you burn, you do not want air to be able to get into your stove through such gaps and cause the appliance to operate at too high a temperature.
