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... [ read more ]
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.
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... [ read more ]
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.

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... [ read more ]

We had the Morso S10-40 fitted to reduce heating oil consumption. Installation required double skin flue as we had no chimney - it took a HETAS engineer and assistant about 4 hours to install... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: A good investment and providing the heat to reduce the oil bill, can't be a bad thing in these difficult times.
