Default Re: how to fix uneven hearth





A little update, removed the bricks today. Sunglasses are for size comparison! The brick on the right isnt broken, well a piece of it is, but it was cut to go around the gas burner in the oven. The bricks are about 1-7/16" thick now.

I am going to get some 9x4.5x1.25" firebrick splits tomorrow and replace them. Charlie, the person that manufactured the oven told me to use thin set to replace the bricks. Can I just use fireclay sand mix dry instead?

No to thin-set, bond will fail during the very first fire...sand fireclay mix is good.
