It might help to post a pic. As they say all WFO's have some cracks. They will not impede the performance unless they're so big that you lose heat from them. Usually just let them fill with ash and keep cooking. You should really address your concerns to FB as they are the manufacturer. Attempts to repair cracks are usually unsuccessful and removal and replacement of floor bricks is a better solution if you can't bear looking at the cracks.

Be best to talk to the manufacturer if you have warranty. Mess with it before then and there goes your warranty.

This floor appears to be a one piece casting and is full of cracks. How did you go with FB?

not real well, it is the one piece deck made in Italy they said they could sell me a new deck, but never got back to me with pricing
I have read there is a ten year warrantee on refractory parts
honestly this oven hasn't seen heavy usage
Im not sure I would go with another one for our restaurant,
if its only got a life span of 2 years , I was hoping for something better from fb
thought they would stand behind it

Out is easy, hammer a chisel. If the new floor is one piece then you cut it in half.

It is difficult to tell from the photograph, but if the dome is sitting on the floor rather than inside it then removal will be even more difficult. It would then have to be cut all the way around the perimeter and then the same amount trimmed off around the new floor. I made my mobile oven with a one piece cast floor because I was worried about the thing rattling to bits over bumpy road vibrations. It has got some decent cracks in it, but they don't affect it's performance. If I were in your boat I'd just keep using it rather than going to the immense trouble of replacing it. Although if you can get it done under warranty and get someone else to pay for the replacement then go for it.

If the issue is looks rather then performance why can't you lay a fire brick or tile floor over the top on a thin fire clay sand bed?
