Also worth checking is the flue pipe. The type used for oil burners is often Ali or at best a low grade stainless steel. Burning wood requires a high grade stainless steel.

Have my back to the side of a rayburn royale as I write..heats our home,our water and baking our bread soon.All fired on well seasoned birch and hazel.Loved it for the 20 years we have had it.

A word of warning to anyone re converting back from oil to wood..because of the dramatic price in oil a lot of people are doing this....in the first case one neighbour had a chimney fire immediately from the build up of deposits in the chimney...in the second and worse case..due to unknown reasons..possibly some leaked oil in the stove's rockwool insulation..friends lost their home to a fire on the first burn of a re converted rayburn.

when we first tested our Rayburn we noticed some smoke coming out of the side we undid the side panel and noticed the rockwool was on fire!!!there was some kind of oil filled thermostat? leaking oil and this had caught fire! thank goodness we were both there

Almost all closed ovens are designed to be run with the fire-door closed. You should not attempt to run them with the door open, due to emission of fumes. (Even re-fuelling emits some fumes.) So please don't!
