Review of Morso 6140 stove

Terrible, wouldn''t buy another

5 years ago

Within several months of installation (approx 4 years ago )the glass had become patchy and discoloured. It's never burnt well and the glass was often sooted up.

Now it's smoking extensively from the rear to the extent that we cannot use it. About to buy another brand. In my experience my Morso fire was aesthetically great but gave dire performance. Given the high purchase cost I feel very disappointed.

Stove expert replied: Did you get the flue draw checked as the problems experienced sound indicative of a poor drawing flue system. The glass discolouration also indicates insufficient air for combustion to occur correctly which can't be blamed on the stove but down to the installation. You say it is smoking from the rear, have you had the chimney swept? What horizontal run is there as it should not exceed 150mm! Expert investigation suggested to ensure the stove has been installed as per the manufacturers guidelines.
