  • Love it But. :/

    Sandra James 3 months ago

    Fell in love with the Morso S10. It's modern. I love the large window, the positive opening and closing of the door. A quality thicker than some ash tray. But 2 weeks in and the door handle... []

    Stove expert replied: Try using a graphite lubricant on the mechanism as this allows for ease of movement. Do make sure that wood is dry and seasoned with a moisture content of less that 20% and give the stove short periods of fast burn during any period of use. This allows for any tar deposits to be burnt off that can adhere to movable parts and cause them to become stiff. Rather a disappointment for this well known brand that is normally known for its quality.

    I bought this Stove about 4 years ago and it has been superb. However when we returned from vacation last year we found that a large corner of the glass front had broke away. When we returned... []

    Stove expert replied: It is part of the stove but classed as consumable and therefore not covered by the warranty as is the case with other manufacturers. You may be able to claim on the house insurance as this is a fixture in the property.

  • Great looking stove, shame about the issues

    Paul Birnie 5 months ago

    I will start this review on a positive. I have had it 6 years now and I can say that it is a lovely looking stove with a great viewing window. It produces a good amount of heat and the external... []

    Stove expert replied: If the stove had a flue damper or stabilizer fitted to the flue there would be more control and thus would prevent distortion of the door / components. A flue draught test can be undertaken to establish if this is required. If the stove is not controllable and responsive then this is the first place to look. If the welded parts buckle then the stove has been overfired for long periods and a manufacturer will not cover this under warranty.

    Rod Hodgkinson 6 months ago

    I've owned a Morso S10-40 for about 12 years now - and am very pleased with it. Initially I found it a little difficult to light - but I now use one firelighter and kindling. Once that has caught... []

    Stove expert replied: Nice review. Liners can be used, providing they are staying in place and protecting the stove body, should they become cracked.

  • 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... []

    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.

  • Very disappointed

    James Drury 2 years ago

    Had the stove 2 years as back up to CH. Very stylish, but performs very poorly. Very often I need to have the door open to get it going. We always use fire lighters and kindling so it should... []

    Stove expert replied: This model is a woodburning stove only. Interesting that extending the flue system has helped could it be extended even further? Is there an airbrick in the room or a direct air kit added to the stove? The lack of performance may be due to lack of air which is required to allow combustion to occur. Is the flue lined as this can aid the draw where draw problems are apparent? Further investigation regarding the installation is recommended. A short flue can be an issue with contemporary cylindrical stoves due to their height and the recommended 4.5 optimum flue length.
