Crack in Vent
 
1 Attachment(s)
my pizza oven developed a crack in the vent - right above the door - do I need to worry about that? It even put a hairline crack in the flagstone on the top of the oven. I have attached a picture (I hope) so you can see the oven. what do I need to be concerned about?

Can you post a close up picture of the crack?

Nice looking outside area are you have there :)

Bottom line for me would be to keep the oven dry inside....Does the crack compromise your dry envelope for the oven? Does the crack cause a smoke leak that bothers you?

I don't have experience with a cracked oven but have read several threads here about patching cracks, you might do a search on fornobravo for 'crack' and read up on the experience of others here :)

Sorry you had to wait so long for a reply. :)

We have been using it with no problems. The crack has not gotten any larger and it is outside of the cooking area (actually, there may be a small crack inside by the door). It really has not impacted it at all, so I think we will just leave it alone. Thanks for the reply! :-D

The crack probably happened on a weekend during the races over by the Interstate ;)

I'm affraid if you do that you will get one gazillion hits. I don't think anything has been discussed more than cracks.

Bauchert,
I think your approach works - if it's not causing any issues, leave it alone.
