Original parts lasted about six years which I think is fine for this stove. Franco Belge have changed ownership so I was worried about getting spares. Anyway ordered replacements from Stove Spares, there is the potential for problems as FB seem to have a Mk1 and Mk2 for this stove and an Elegance or Classic version. Anyway Stove Spares have a very clear website and I ordered the right parts and they arrived very quickly, they fitted perfectly straight away. All in all a very good experience.
