  • Please help: Crack inside of dome

    I cured the oven per the instructions. I have used it since curing about 5 times. Last night I had a good fire going and my oven developed a verticle crack about 18 inches long, 1/8 inch wide. Two of the firebricks cracked along this path. The outside of the dome is fine, has no cracks and is cool to the touch. Should this cause me any concern? Any advice is very much appreciated. Thank you.

    It's been noted and said many times - cracks happen. Doesn't sound like it will be a problem.

      Was it bending over?

        Was it bending over? Who?? Oh, the plumber with his head in your oven? Yes, he was bending over, didn't you see the crack?
