We bought this stove in 2010 and due to non retail issues (flood & chemical damage) the stove required replacement. Until then all we could offer was wow what a stove, worked in every way. The... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: As this problem is a new one then it is best to look at what has changed to find the cause and rectify - I am sure this can be done so that you can enjoy your stove again.
The biggest problem is the smoke spillage into the house when you open the door to load more wood. I can not seem to solve this problem no matter what I try. I have heard many reasons why this... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Sounds like a chimney problem, not a stove problem. I woudl contact a chimney specialists.
Still a good stove. I agree that the glass gets dirty much quicker than our Pacific Energy Vista Classic. I have found that if you burn it at a decent temperature (400 - 700), the glass will... [ read more ]
I have owned, used, supplied and installed every single Jotul traditional cast iron stove from the F100 to the F600. Some of my customers who have purchased the F400 have complained about the... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Very disappointing on a stove that is well known, this customer seems to have tried and tested several so perhaps a modification is in order!!
My wife and I have burned with wood for 17 years and have had a Jotul before. We had this stove less than 2 months of the heating season when the glass face cracked. A log probably fell forward... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Glass is an item that is not normally covered by any manufacturers warranty, as stated it may have been knocked causing the crack after 2 months use.Regarding the smoke issue, there may be a need for further ventilation in the room, the wood may be wet or other possibilities which should be investigated further with your installer.
We have recently installed a Jotul F400 in our cottage. It's never been so warm!The stove itself is large, sturdy and elegant. It's built in cast iron, oozes quality and is extremely easy to... [ read more ]
I have to say that I'm very disappointed with the F400. I have an interior chimney that is only 10 years old and very robust. We never had any draft issue with our previous stove. The Chimney... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: This sounds like the problem could be partly due to poor fuel - when a stove is hard to control and then suddenly runs away this can be due to wet fuel: it is hard to light and run to start with, and then when the fuel dries out the air vents are still fully open and off it goes! If the problem is partly down to chimney draft then fitting a flue damper may help with that.If you are choosing another stove then we find that very few people have problems with Morso stoves, regardless of the chimney that they are attached to, although burning poor fuel on a Morso would still stop the stove working well.
We purchased our Jotul f400 in Dec 2003 - the two-door model (the latest version has only a single large door). It is the primary heater for our three bedroom house which is an open plan chalet... [ read more ]
