How to identify which model of Morso Squirrel you have

Carrying the iconic Squirrel image, the first Morso 1410 Squirrel was introduced to the UK in 1980 and has been a firm favourite with both householders and boat owners ever since. New models have been developed over the years all of which, with the exception of the 1440, are still in production.
A common mistake that people make is thinking that the numbers cast on the parts of the stove are the model number however they are actually the casting numbers for the parts themselves.
The following information provides a quick and simple way to identify your stove….

      Hello Mr Chudley,
      The model number has not changed but a number of spares have now been discontinued.
      Was there a particular part you were looking for?
      Kind regards
