More reviews for Morso Badger stove (page 1 of 3)
bought and fitted in 2002 used for 8 months of the year. Price paid £750 used to heat a room 60 m2 / not often used on a high setting mostly medium. Can stay in all night if desired. fuel: Pure Heat / occasionally wood Parts replaced / 1 x glass Fire bricks are now cracked but still in place Riddling grate distorted and jammed, not replaced yet as a poker easily cleans the dust left behind from Pure heat Ash-pan does not quite catch all the ash but this is not a problem The stove still seals really well and can be closed right down if needed I have managed to accidentally let the stove 'rip' a few times after getting distracted after lighting. This was the cause of the riddling grate getting distorted The air wash system is OK but not brilliant, better with clean fuel The handle is a good positive motion but does get hot Benefit of the convector model is furnishing can be closer Obviously a very well made bit of kit that looks set to last a long time...

Stove expert replied: Good solid stove providing great service over many years.
Just got a badger stove installed. Instructions not the best. Primary control on the front only turns fully once, doesn't seem to make any difference... Do I need to loosen it? Also when first... [ read more ]
The badger will keep you very warm to the extent we keep the doors open in the living room but its not without faults. We also have a Morso owl which is easier to control and refuel. The problem with the badger is it is difficult to light on cold still nights due to down pressure in the twin wall stainless flue and it ends up emitting smoke into the room when refuelling. Morso say to leave the door ajar when refuelling but it doesn't always work. Ours is installed correctly and I think it is over damped which in effect inhibits gases getting out of the stove. We're going to bin it and install something simpler.... [ read more ]
Brilliant stove. Those Scandinavians certainly know what they are doing. It's easy to use and contrary to what Rodney Strain says, the airwash works brilliantly. OK, so it's dear, but you certainly... [ read more ]
Great stove, have had no problems. Not sure how to use as multi fuel as only using for wood at present. It is really lovely would buy again.
Stove expert replied: Great review.
Agree wholeheartedly with Michael Botham and others. This could be great little stove ... good-looking, very efficient, beautiful castings and overall build-quality, but is let down in a couple... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Disappointing problem with the grate and ash removal system.
Took a long time to decide which stove, but I am glad that we decided on this one, we also have Dunsley Highlander 8 in another room, but the Morso is easier to light, keep in and seems to give... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Take care not to stack your wood too close to the stove, it is combustible!!!
Superb stove. Heats up 2 rooms, one of which has a vaulted ceiling about 4m in height. There has been many a Dec/ Jan / Feb that we have had to open the windows to let the heat out. So happy... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Another great review for a Morso stove, amazing heat produced for such a small model.
I bought this as a replacement for a Squirrel which was moved to another room. It works mostly OK but there ase a few minus points. Once the door seal is bedded in, it no longer seals so the door rattles. The grate is wider than the pan, so some of the ash drops outside the pan. The seconday air control sits tight against the stove when turned clockwise, so you risk touching the stove when you need to move it. Tertiary air is uncontrolled, so you get a mini 'blast furnace' when there's a strong wind. It might work better with a chimney damper. Where the glass gets hottest it develops what look like little star like cracks which leave it looking dirty. Not as easy to start as a Squirrel as you cannot open the ash pan door on it's own to get a strong draft. On balance I think a squirrel is a better stove, maybe not quite as efficient, but without the drawbacks. ... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: There appears to be an over-drawing issue in certain weather conditions which should be investigated further to prevent damage occurring to the stove. There should be adjustment on the door but if the rope has seated it will need replacement as this will add to the overdrawing problem.
