Review of Morso s10-40

Disappointed

Emily Ledson 5 years ago

We had our Morso s10-40 fitted over a year ago and so far we are quite disappointed, especially given how much we spent on buying and installing it.

I'd agree with other reviewers. The firebrick cracked after less than 12 months but Morso did send out a replacement quickly. It never really seems to get going. I have the door slightly open to get it started but as soon as I close the door it dies. In fact, we are always running it at maximum and its extremely rare we can turn it down as it just never gets going. I've checked the moisture content on the wood and its OK. We were told we didn't need an Airbrick unless we bought a stove >5kw. It was fitted by a hetas firm.

So far I'm really disappointed. I feel we could have spent less and got something much better. I'd love someone to tell me if there is something we can do to make it run better
