output much easier than with the morso. It is the only heat source in an old cottage and every room is warm including upstairs. the big door allows for large logs to be used which keeps fire in all night. very pleased. The morso was also a good stove which will be put into outside office.

completely. Rooms 15metres from the fire still feels its warmth. After being out for 11 hours I still have glowing embers to relight my kindling, after 8 hrs I could just put in small logs.The fire is well made feels solid. A bonus for me was the installers fitted a T shaped junction between the log burner and the flue pipe at the back of the log burner instead of an L.This means that to clean the flue I just unscrew the exposed end of the T and clean my flue pipe. Looks ugly but its practical and gives peace of mind to know the flue is "clean" between visits by the chimmney sweep. Great stove.

Stove expert replied: You do not say what the problems are that you are experiencing so unable to advise specifically things to check. The installation is key and would be a good starting point along with having the chimney swept, making sure there is enough air in the room and the fuel is a good quality.
and also smoke leaking out around the seals when lighting from cold. Initially the flue pipe went horizontally out of the back. Changing this to top exit orientation plus lining the chimney ( 6" double wall stainless) which is a 10 inch clay liner design, 7 meters, with 2, 45 bends has improved matters no end. An earlier stove, Villager with the flue again, straight out the back suffered no problems. Apart from that very satisfied.
Stove expert replied: Different stoves can react using the same flue system due to the manufacturing process, style, flue diam etc.
I HAD THE 1950'S FIREPLACE REFACED AND HAD THE SMOKE LEDGE OPENED UP TO MAKE THE JOTUL GO STRAIGHT UP WITH NO BENDS. I'VE HAD, RIGHT FROM THE START A "SMOKING" PROBLEM AND JOTUL IN ITS INSTALL MANUAL SAYS" CHIMNEY MUST BE 14' AND I HAD 12.5', PLUS THE PITCH OF MY ROOF TO THE CHIMNEY COULD BE A PROBLEM. I CHECKED THAT OUT AND THERE IS NO PROBLEM. SO I PURCHASED A 3' EXTENSION AND THAT HELPED PUT ME OVER 15' AND ON WINDY DAYS IT LET'S THE SMOKE GET OUT OF THE PIPE MORE FREELY. SO, THE ONE THING MY INSTALLERS DID NOT DO WAS WRAP INSULATION AROUND MY LINER AND NOW I AM THINKING THIS WOULD HAVE HELPED WITH MY DRAFT TO THE STOVE. WE NOW TRY TO FEED THE FIRE WHEN IT'S DOWN, BUT STILL THE SMELL OF SMOKE GOES THROUGH THE HOUSE. IT LOOKS LIKE I WILL HAVE TO TAKE THE JOTUL APART AND REDO IT FOR THE THIRD TIME. LAST YEAR I GOT THROUGH TO JOTUL AND LEFT A MESSAGE FOR HELP FROM A TECH. PERSON,,,,STILL WAITING. THE AREA REP. DID CALL, BUT MADE NO ATTEMPT TO COME BY AND SEE WHAT HE COULD DO. I HAVE SPENT Â£3,000 SO FAR AND IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE IF JOTUL COULD HAVE HELPED. I AM THINKING ABOUT HAVING THE TOP OF THE CHIMNEY MADE HIGHER BY ANOTHER 18 TO 24" AND THEN SEE IF IT HELPS. I HAVE WATCHED VIDEOS OF JOTULS AND OTHER STOVES WITH THE DOORS WIDE OPEN AND NO SMOKE. I HAD A WOOD STOVE BEFORE THE JOTUL, BUT EPA STANDARDS IT WAS NOT, SO I GOT THE F400. I WILL TRY AGAIN WITH JOTUL AND THEIR "CRICK IT" WEB SITE AND MAYBE, JUST MAYBE I WILL GET SOME HELP.
Stove expert replied: Ask you installer for further advice or speak to a flue expert. May be an anti down-draught cowl is required.
Stove expert replied: Disappointing review of the Jotul stove. Is there an airbrick in the room? The flue draw may be an issue and should be checked to insure that the stove can function correctly.
Stove expert replied: Always give a stove a short period of fast burn (15 - 20mins) twice a day to insure that the residues produced during a slow burn period are burnt off and do not build up as this can cause chimney fires and smoking problems as described above. Regular checks should be made to see that the flue remains clear.
