The Morsø 1430 Squirrel is a small but perfectly formed multi-fuel stove. It comes with a stay-clean glass, convenient ashpan. It is easy to see why the Morsø 1400 Squirrel Series is the most popular small cast iron stove in Britain.

Its rated output of 4.6 kW makes the 1430 Squirrel ideally suited for small and medium sized rooms and makes a lovely addition to any home.

The Morsø 1430 Squirrel comes with the option of squirrel or ribbed sides and is also fitted with bottom and rear heat shield.

    Hi – please can you tell me the difference between the 1410 & the 1430. Also, I see the 1410 is not DEFRA Approved, is the 1430? Thanks

    • morsouk

      Hello Abbie
      The only difference between the 1410 and 1430 is the secondary air inlet. This is the air supply used when burning wood and introduces combustion air into the firebox above the fuel bed. On the 1410 it is controlled by the spinner on top of the main door. The secondary air on the 1430 is controlled by a lever under the ash lip which draws air in at the back of the stove. This air is then drawn though a cast iron channel inside the stove where it is pre-heated before it enters the firebox. The introduction of hot air improves combustion resulting in a cleaner burn. However neither the 1410 or 1430 are exempt for use in smoke control areas when burning wood.

    Hello – apologies in advance for not knowing the correct terminology to use….I believe there are stoves which can be left burning (at a low/slow rate) for longish periods of time, however apparently these don’t compile to current building regs. I was told by a friend that their ‘old’ stove can be left buring over night etc and it has something to do with an air supply? Do these exsist? If so can you tell me which Morso stove please? Many thanks

      Dear Lucy,

      Slumbering a stove will reduce the firebox and flue gas temperature which can result in condensation in the flue. This in turn can lead to a build up of tar in the flue potentially resulting in a chimney fire. For a stove to burn cleanly and efficiently it need to maintain a good working temperature.

      It is possible, but for the above reasons it is not recommended.

  • Lorraine Godfrey

    Hi, can you sweep through this stove???

    • morsouk

      Dear Lorriane,

      You would have to get the baffle out to do it, but it is indeed sweepable from the inside.

  • Dan Stanley

    I recently bought a squirrel 1430 from a neighbour and just wanted a little advice. Inside the stove all of the heat bricks are cracked and the top one is also broken. Do I have to replace all of these? Also, the shaking plate is broken and I assume that will need to be replaced otherwise the logs will simply fall down. Any advice would be gratefully received. Thank you

    • morsouk

      Hi Stanley,

      Thank you for your enquiry.

      Cracks in the bricks/vermiculite plates may happen due to bumps from the wood. There is no need to replace the bricks even though they are cracked. They do still insulate the fire chamber.

      The purpose of the bricks is to insulate the fire chamber to increase the combustion temperature. However, if they start crumbling, the insulation disappears. This may damage the cast iron and they do in this case have to be replaced.

      The top one you mention, I believe is the baffle.

      The baffle is a consumable item that should be changed as needed.

      When letting too much primary air through the grate shaker, the temperature in the combustion chamber becomes very high, and this can shorten the life of the baffle. So if it is broken, the baffle should indeed be replaced. And the same goes for the riddling grate – depending on the condition.

      Any replacement parts needed can be bought from your nearest Morsø dealer which can be found using the below link. I hope this helps!

    Hi Jake,

    125mm (5”) diameter refers the internal diameter of the flue pipe. The wall thickness of the connecting flue pipe will vary depending the materials used in its construction.

    Typically stainless steel will be 1mm thick, giving it an external diameter of 127mm, vitreous enamel may have a wall thickness of 2.5mm giving a 130mm ex-dia. It is also acceptable to make the connection with mild steel or cast iron pipe providing the wall is a minimum 3mm thick, equalling an ex-dia of 131mm. For this reason, and to leave sufficient room between the flue collar and the flue pipe for a gasket seal, we produce the collar with an internal diameter of 134mm.

    There is a length of 5mm diameter gasket supplied with all our appliances which will be sufficient to seal the connection regardless of the type of pipe used.

    Hi Dave,

    The hearth needs to be a minimum of 225mm in front of the stove (from the door) + 380mm stove depth (438 is taking from the edge of the ash lip, and not from the door) + minimum 50mm to the rear of the stove to non-combustibles = at least 655-670 approximately.

    Is the 1430 as clean burning as the 1410 and if not can the 1430 be upgraded to make it as clean?

  • Noel

    Sorry, is the 1430 as clean burning as the 1412?

    • morsouk

      Hi Noel,

      The 1430 is not as clean burning as the 1412.

      The 1412 has a tertiary air system, which is a third air intake; there is no control for this and it is pre-set.
      Tertiary air guarantees sufficient air into the stove to give a cleaner burn when using wood.

      Unfortunately it is not possible to upgrade the 1430 into a 1412 since they are two quite different appliances with a different design.

    Hi Phil,

    Yes the 150mm and 250mm legs are available for the Swift and the Squirrel models.

    Also, we can confirm that our Swift and Squirrel stoves (with longer legs as well) will not heat the hearth underneath above 100 degrees centigrade, and therefore it can be fitted on a 12 mm thick non combustible hearth.

    On my 1430, once the fire is burning well, should I close the primary air control (bottom one) and just leave the secondary open? It’s not clear which ones to leave open to ensure the most efficient burn. I only use kiln dried wood.

    • morsouk

      Dear Simon,

      Once the fire is burning well and you have a sufficient draft, I would indeed recommend closing the primary air and leaving secondary open.

      The heat output of your stove is regulated by means of 2 air inlets.

      1. The primary air supply, the air which passes through the shaking grate, is controlled by the bottom air control. This air supply is mostly used for a start up boost, or when you are burning solid fuel.

      2. The secondary air supply, i.e. the air supplied to the fire across the glass window, is controlled by the air control slide under the ash lip. This air supply is used when burning wood.

      • Simon Johnson

        Thanks for the help.

  • Kerry Kendall

    Could you please tell me how far the 1430 needs to be from the back of the fireplace. I only have a very shallow recess. I also notice in some of the pictures that the stoves are sitting forward to the surround or chimney breast is this acceptable in reality rather than just for photographs and if so how far is it acceptable for them to protroude.

    I am interested in the 1430 with longer legs.

    Thank you Kerry

    • morsouk

      Hi Kerry,

      The minimum clearance to combustibles for the 1430 Squirrel to the rear is 600mm.

      The minimum clearance to non-combustibles for the 1430 Squirrel to the rear is 50mm.

      The 1430 Squirrel can protrude from the fireplace opening. The maximum distance is going to be controlled by your flue requirements.

      I would recommend contacting your local Morso dealer for a survey to be carried out for your installation.
