How to identify a Morso Stove

Morso have been manufacturing woodburning and multi fuel stoves since 1853. Over this time you can imagine there have been a lot of stove models! So where do you begin when trying to identify a Morso Stove? Well, the first place to look is on the rear of the stove. Most stoves will have a data plaque on the rear. This will detail the model (1), fuel type (4), efficiency (3) and distance to combustibles (2). See example below.

In this instance it gives several 4 digit numbers. Taking ‘6840’ as an example. The first two digits denote the series model ie 6800. This will correlate to the stove body. The second two digits generally relate to the base option ie pedestal, store stand, cupboard base. These are not normally important for the purposes of ordering internal Morso parts. Failing this, you could also look for the stove data plate. This should have been filled in by the HETAS engineer upon install and left in the property. This could be located around the fireplace, utility cupboard, fuse box or similar.

Morso Animal Range

Another way of identifying certain Morso stoves is to look on the sides for an embossed animal motif. Morso produced a range of cast iron stoves named after animals – most notably The Morso Squirrel – which had a squirrel portrayed each side. There was also a Morso Lion, Dove, Swan.
