Musa 22 and Club 22 Hydro wood pellet stoves removed from MCS list

Posted by Cathy Debenham on 3 November 2014 at 11:30 am

Homeowners who have installed a Musa 22 or Club 22 Hydro wood pellet stove manufactured by Italian MCZ Group received a letter from the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) last week advising them of potential faults and advising them not to use them. 

The MCS warns that it has been made aware of "four serious incidents involving these stoves". The most recent was last month. "We understand in each case that the glass door on the stoves shattered, but fortunately in each case, no one was seriously injured. 

The letter added: "BRE Global, as the relevant certification body for the products concerned, are investigating the incidents and have made contact with MCZ to investigate how and why the incidents occurred. We understand that MCZ will be writing to you shortly. MCZ suggest that the incidents have arisen as a result of incorrect installation or inadequate maintenance. At this stage of the investigation, MCS and BRE are not in a position to determine whether the incidents were as a result of a product, installation or user fault or a combination of more than one of those factors. 

Stove owners are advised to contact Specflue Ltd, the UK distributor of MCZ products on 0800 881 5112 before using their stove again.

MCS installers who have installed one or more of these stoves have also been contacted. BRE Global suspended MCZ's certification from the MCS scheme pending investigation.
