Review of Morso 6140 stove

Worst stove ever

3 years ago

Had the 6148 installed. My wife wanted this because of the contemporary design. I have had wood stoves before and this is the worst designed stove on the planet!!! If you want to fill your house with smoke - because you have to leave the door open to create enough draft to get it to burn - then this is the stove for you!!. I wish I had seen some of the negative reviews on this stove before I sunk over 4K into this stove and its installation. When you need to add wood you have to keep the door cracked to get enough draft to get fire rather than smoulder. Wish I had never heard of this brand. Exceptionally poor design in that for it to fire properly vents in the bottom grate have to be clear - how is that possible if that''s where the wood lies when it burns?? Buy some other brand! You have been warned.

Stove expert replied: There may be factors that prevent this stove from functioning as expected. Have you a short flue (less than 4.5mtrs?) Is there an airbrick in the room to provide adequate free air to allow combustion to occur? Wood burns best on a bed of ash so an over draught is required.
