Thought of something could it be that I hit the temp in the oven to high to soon would that have anything to do with it? Is it normal to pile a lot of wood when starting the oven up?

Once your oven is cured it really shouldn't matter. It's not like you can go from 0 to 1000 degree's in a second. Your bricks needed to find their happy place - the crack shows you where that is.

Nope. Every oven cracks. You built a solid structure that WILL expand and contract with heating and cooling. As Les said, your oven found it's happy place.

I promise, in a few months you won't even notice the crack.

Ken,

I remember in the beginning that cracks were appearing. That's what sent me down my path. It seemed if everything could float, and not fall apart, that it would solve the problem. But at the end of the day, we have seen a LOT of cracks and they never have caused a problem (other than the one low arch)

Dave, you are going to be golden - good work.

+ 1 on the advice to not worry. I have a crack just like that. Not a problem at all

End of the day, I think there are two types of ovens: those that crack, and those people lie about not having cracks.

A firebrick by itself will not crack. If you force it into a position it doesn't like, it will, or whatever you used to hold it there will crack.

Hi Dave

That happens sometimes as is nothing to worry about if it is between an 1/8 of an inch. Happy cooking!
