  • Crack in oven floor?

    I have just noticed a small crack running through one of my four floor sections in my oven. I have had over 10 fires on top of the intial curing fires.
    Is this serious, I have a good layer of vermiculite underneath so should not loose heat?

    Any suggestions?

    I think you should be fine. Cracks in the dome can be a problem for structural reasons, but the floor is ok... so long as you don't catch the peel on it.

    At least that's what I would think. Any other opinions out there?

      That sounds right to me. Typically, floor cracks don't get larger very fast and you can grind a small lip -- if one develops.

      You should be fine.

        assuming the hearth has reinforcement, it should be fine.

          Thanks for the advice, I thought it would be OK but when you see it for the first time panic sets in.

          Luckily the crack runs vertical so should be no issue with the peel.

          Thanks again

            Keep an eye on it (not that you couldn't), and let us know what it does.
