Tony Johnson 10 years ago

We have had my panther for 12 years,is there an easy way to change the back plate due to a hole than having to remove the top.I cannot see how this will come out with out takeing the top off,any advice.

Stove expert replied: I hope this is the part you are referring to: Procedure for the replacement of the inner back panel Morsø Panther Open and remove doors by lifting them off the hinges Lift the weight of the baffle plate off the side bricks and rotate each brick in turn into the centre of the stove and remove With the bricks removed it will now be possible to take the baffle plate out Remove centre riddling grate and inner grate frame, it is sometimes easier to remove the riddling grate and the riddling arm as one and withdraw through the stove, to achieve this it will be necessary to unscrew the riddling arm knob Now remove the outer grate frame (key 1), the frame is clamped into the stove by two crosshead screws and ‘L’ brackets, slacken the screws and rotate the brackets out of the way Outer Grate Screw Location Point (one either side) Remove the 4 bolts holding the air-wash manifold (key 6) It may be necessary to lever or use a mallet to tap the front edge of the manifold down to remove it Unbolt and remove the inner back panel (key 3) Ensure the channels that the manifold and back plate locate into are clear of debris and replace gaskets if necessary (8mm very soft gasket- Morsø gasket kit 62904300) Loosely place the new inner back plate in position but do not fix with bolts Pull the top edge of the back plate forward and position the air wash manifold on top of it Push both components back at the same time until the air wash hits the inside top face of the stove then use a scissor action to walk the panels into place. Secure both components with the fixing bolts Reassemble grate frame, baffle and bricks Ensure the doors are correctly refitted before operating the stove
