is extremely efficient, so you can control the way it burns quickly - though this does take a few goes to understand the settings. It's also very good value for money.

we have with the stove is it just never seams to be able to get the room warm....any ideas would be much appreciated. The reason we bought this small little stove was to be able to get it into the alcove we have from our old open fire. I sometimes am so tempted to take it out and somehow get another stove into the same area.I think the stove looks great and it is easy to operate and light.Any help or thoughts would be much appreciated... on another note the back fire brick cracked over the first winter..Overall we like it but just wish we could get more heat out of it...
Stove expert replied: Have you got 150mm clearance either side and back with 300mm above? If smaller then the heat will not radiate freely as the space is restricting its flow. A fan on the top may help to circulate if you have room.

30mins on wood. I have to admit we have done virtually no maintenance on the stove in this time, that's not to say it probably should have had some! All fire bricks are intact and original!! We burn reclaimed wood (fence posts and builders off cuts) 90% of the time and then revert to compacted wood briquettes when wood runs out. Occasionally use coal but takes too long to heat up when we need quick heat form 7pm till 11pm most nights. We have a flue liner within the old stone chimney and whenever swept it has very little soot. Main complaint is having to cut the wood into such small bits takes too much of ones evenings!! As an architect, I also love the clean and simple design of the stove and is mainly why I chose it. Highly recommended for anyone thinking to use it as we do above.
Stove expert replied: Great feedback.
an hour it warms up nicely and is very sturdy.Thoroughly recommended !!!
had no chimney. Gas bill has tumbled. Should add that have access to wood but even if you haven't then no brainer. Changed our lives. Any doubts contact me
stuff roll back out at you. Not a problem if you have a large enough hearth, but the main thing to be aware of with this stove, is that it burns through a baffle plate about once every 18 months, not a big issue, but an added running cost
Stove expert replied: If you are over-loading the stove this can lead to a shortening life time of the internal components, perhaps load less to see if this makes a difference to the baffle life time!
gives the impression of a well designed and well built log burner.
couple of minutes after lighting, this seems to happen especially at the beginning of the heating season when the chimney is cold and damp. I am much more careful now and have learned to cope with this.The problem is that you cannot completely shut-off the air intake, so when the stove fails to light as described, no draught has been established and the smoke in the chimney and firebox falls down and emerges from the stove's underside and spreads across the floor of the room. You are helpless, there is no way to stop it. The oily smell of a firelighter is not a pleasant one. That is a minor inconvenience but demonstrates the real problem. What if you have a chimney fire? The first thing you want to do is shut off completely the air supply to limit the problem. But that is impossible on this and many Morso stoves. How could a company with such a tradition in designing stoves make such a mistake? Ensuring some air supply at all times may improve stove efficiency, but I'm afraid they have compromised on safety.
Stove expert replied: Try leaving the door a jar when first lighting so that the flue gases are lifted out of the stove. If gases are coming back down the flue then this should be looked into as there should always be a draw to insure the stove can work effectively. It may not be the stove that is at fault but a poor flue draw!! Advise getting this checked.
them when carrying out his annual sweep.I guess they will eventually need replacing.The stove easily heats our 28ftx11ft lounge diner area.The stove always lights easily and the airwash seems to work fairly well.The glass very occasionally blackens at the bottom slightly(usually when you overload and smother the fire creating excessive smoke). Although the firebox is not massive, once the fire is established the stove really belts out the heat! We havn't tried keeping the stove burning overnight.Overall we are really pleased with our 04 and would consider buying another Morso.
Stove expert replied: Producing good output and providing the firebricks are protecting the metal can be used. These are consumable so will require periodic replacement.
