Default Re: Premio2G floor problems

I installed my Premio2G a year ago and the two front tiles have large cracks in them. Forno Bravo sent me a replacement tile but removing the old and installing the replacement seems ridiculously difficult and who is to say it won't crack again. I would like to know how many of you out there who bought the Premio2g have the same problem. I think it is a defective product that Forno Bravo should have told us about when we bought the oven.

fredjana,
FB sent me replacement tiles also - that I still have in my garage. Like you, I thought the task of replacing them was daunting. I decided to keep them in case the problem got worse. The original cracks I saw have gotten marginally longer and larger. I wouldn't minimize their description as hairline - but they do not seem to significantly affect the operation of the oven. If and when they do, I will attempt replacement.

Like you I am disappointed that the floor cracked, if for no other reason it is asthetically detractive.

I expected more, especially after paying as much as we did. The door wasn't available when I picked up the oven, After many delays they sent one. When it arrived, the hole for the thermometer was missing. Instead of replacing it, they sent me a drill bit.

ksmarkel,

Thanks for the response. The cracks on my floor are definitely not hairline and are getting worse (wider, longer, more cracks). Just doesn't seem right that this is happening, particularly for the $$ spent. My oven is still serviceable but who knows for how long. Like you, I am putting off replacing the tiles until I have no choice. Let me know if/when you end up doing it.

fredjana

I just placed my Casa2 G110 floor and dome, I measured the gap between the floor tiles and dome and its seems extremely excessive. I have at least a 1/2" and in some areas over a 5/8" gap around the perimeter.

Is this consistent with what everyone is finding? I can understand a tolerance of even out to an 1/8", but a 1/2" or more just seems excessive.

thanks for any help
The oven is designed to allow a gap between the side wall of the floor and the interior dome. That gap should never be filled in with mortar or sairset, but you can fill it with sand (this also helps with heat transference). The Front landing in front of the interior door from the door jamb forward, you can use mortar to fill in the seam on the side wall. The temperature is lower and the floor can expand backwards.

Optimally, we want to allow for 1/2" gap with + / - 1/8" tolerance in manufacturing. This allows for thermal expansion and contraction.

The dome and floor are hand cast / cut, we do not use a water jet or similar process for tight tolerances. Each dome piece can be laid to fit tight or loose by the installer which could "reduce" the gap, so we prefer to leave a little extra gap to account for "accumulated tolerance" in the install process such as floor / dome expansion contraction, if the installer sets the dome pieces too tight (1/16 to 1/2 inch is acceptable, 1/4" ideal).

The floor gap should never be filled in with mortar or sairset, but you can fill it with sand (this also helps with heat transference). The Front landing in front of the interior door from the door jamb forward, you can use mortar to fill in the seam on the side wall. The temperature is lower and the floor can expand backwards.
