Review of Morso 7642 stove

Worth every penny.

Darren Rogers 8 years ago

I bought this stove as I know the brand and recommend them to customers. As you would expect the build quality from Morso is excellent. Easy to lite, 6 rolled up newspaper pages with two handfulls of kindling and two small soft wood logs on top with the door pushed shut (not locked) and within 5 minutes its roaring away, after a further 5 minutes you can lock the door. The heat from the 7642 is great. Easy to control with the top sliding air controller. Ash pan is big and well made, great log store. We have installed this using twin wall insulataed pipe from a metre of stove pipe out of the stove for that extra bit of heat.

The draw is good with an overall length of just under 5 metres of flue with one bend in it.

The over night burn is not possible hence the 1.

For the price I would rate this stove far above any other contempoary stove in its output range.

It is heating two rooms. One being L shaped 7 metres x 5 metres and the main lounge area, 6.5 metres x 3.5 metres. The heat is also making its way upstairs, enough to take the chill off but we like getting into a cold bed.

Now we are looking forward to getting our gas bill without having to pick ourselves up off the floor when we open it.

Log rate over 5 hours approx 6 soft wood and 4 hard wood all around 7 inches x 3 inches. Low fuelage with high performance, What more could anyone want.

I will be putting some pictures of the stove on our website, www.dalisafireplaces.co.uk.
