    Hi Zaman,

    We are talking with our production guys and will get back to you. This is the first time we've seen something like this.

    We'll get right back to you.

      Hey Zaman,

      We can't think of anything other than the oven might have been set down hard once. Still, it will be fine. We can send you a little patch it and it won't ever be an issue.

      You will be getting an email from our support folks shortly, and we will send the kit right out.

        I think you should Dig it out about one inch wide and 1 inch deep or to the insulation and then use poormans mortar and fill it all in...... then us a Stucco like Dryvit or STO and coat the whole oven with 2 coats....

        This should make it new looking again and stop the cracking

          thanks for the suggestions. forno bravo is sending material and instruction for the repair. do you think using it till the repair shows up will make it worse ??

                I know you are good to go and can cook in it ...it seems you cracked the outer shell some how...... Just wait for the stuff James is going to send you and fix it....I would recommend putting STO or Dryvit on the outter shell....first you can pick what ever color you want and 2nd it will smooth out the crack and last but not least it will water proof it better

                  One quick note. This is a hairline crack in the stucco enclosure (not the oven itself).

                    yes, it doesn't seem like it would hamper the oven. i don't want moisture to seep in. the repair kit will take care of it I'm sure .
