Review of Morso 1416 stove

Bought to replace another stove as this is suitable for Smoke free zone and old stove was difficult to get going in new house. Fairly easy to light but can be a little temperamental if too much ash is left on grate - possibly blocking primary air from making it to the fuel properly, also needs door leaving slightly ajar until it gets up to full speed. Once going it's very controllable and needs minimum fuss. Very efficient compared to old stove. Like the styling (like previous review was going to go for 1412 but liked the more contemporary look of 1416).

Had it installed in April this year and the only negative I'd say is the amount of time it is/has taken for the new smell to burn off - if it is left to burn too fast (above flue temp thermometer optimum zone), it still gives off fumes after a good 4 weeks of use.

Having said that it's a cracking little stove and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for a small room heater, fills our 4m x 4m room with heat in around an hour even during the short cold snap we've just had.

Stove expert replied: Paint curing can take a while but should not last much longer. Glad to hear you are happy with it bar from that.

    Hi , We have had this stove fitted in May.....and have really just started to use it regularly since the nights have for a tad cooler. Have you for any hints and tips......do you have the lever out for the primary air out full and the same with the secondary......or do you shut off the primary control. I am getting there......had a great fire the other night....but thought I had the primary air out too full. Would really value your hints and tips for lighting and controlling. Many thanks Theresa Rooney
