Stove expert replied: I have emailed you the exploded diagram of parts that make up this stove for your information. Did you get a manual with the stove as this gives guidance regarding how to operate it effectively and efficiently? If not this can be downloaded from the internet. The grate in the bottom of the stove will allow you to use smokeless fuel or wood on the stove and for wood burning you would not use the riddling mechanism but leave the ash to build up to a good bed, this will only need to be removed periodically as wood burns best on a bed of ash with an over draught. Perhaps once installed and you are using the stove you will review it from a working point of view.

Stove expert replied: If a stove gets too hot it can cause components to expand and then not be operable. Have you a stove thermostat so you can see the correct operating temperatures? A graphite lubricating spray or powder may help to allow moving parts to run freely. A stove should not be running a full capacity continually but being operated on a nominal setting where the flames are dancing steadily with short bursts of max heat to burn off residues produced when operating on a low setting. (maximum operation should be no more than 15 - 20 mins when the fire is established). The average heat output of this stove is 8kW so is suitable for medium to large room depending on other heat sources etc. If you operate the stove on maximum for long periods you invalidate the warranty and stand to distort components and possible crack the casting.

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
So far so good, only bought it in August 2012 so have not really experienced very cold weather but it looks great and is straight forward...Can a mix of coal and logs be used in this model? ... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: This model can burn wood and smokeless fuels. We do not recommend that you burn wood and smokeless fuel at the same time: burning smokeless fuel produces sulphuric acid and wood can contain a lot of moisture - this combination can coat your chimney in sulphuric acid solution which can quickly eat away at anything. Plus the conditions for burning wood efficiently are not the same as those for burning smokeless efficiently.
The ash pan is a pain to get in and out of the stove, almost doesn't fit. The riddling grate is next to useless and you end up shovelling the ash out. More ash then falls through to the underside... [ read more ]

Stove expert replied: If you shut the air controls for over night burning then the glass will blacken due to not having the correct mix for good combustion, try using a cloth dipped in woodash or vingegar, also insure that the wood has 20% or less moisture content.
