Review of Morso s10-40

Very disappointed

John Gaunt 2 years ago

We had this stove installed just over a year ago . Since then the handle bolt has broken twice the fire brick lining has cracked and it is excessively smokey to light. We had a cowl fitted on the flue which has helped but still have a problem from time to time even when wood is very dry . Now having to redecorate the room it is in due to the smoke damage. Would not recommend this stove !!!! We have a woodwarm stove in another room which is brilliant with no problems whatsoever.

Stove expert replied: Tall stoves will require a decent flue length and ideally 4.5mtrs so depending on the installation this may be a factor that is affecting the flue draw. Ensure that there is enough free air in the room to aid combustion and if it causes a real problem then a possible flue fan may overcome this. The lining is a consumable item and is not covered by warranty and care should be taken when loading the stove to avoid knocking with force when loading with fuel. The handle bolt should be covered under warranty and is surprising that this has failed twice in the time you have the stove.
