Hi Folks. Back again. I have found a 2 yr. old Jotul Oslo that according the owner was really only used the first winter (06-07). Upon inspection, the sealant between the floor and sidewalls is cracked and even missing in one place. Is this unusual for such a young stove? Perhaps a sign of over-firing? What is average life of the original mfg. seal? I'm worried that this stove was over-fired resulting in the cracking of the sealant. I also noticed a white to cream speckled dust on the non-cat tubing above. I didn't touch it to see if it wipes off or is attached, but is that normal? Side and front doors were very tight - had to pull pretty hard to pull dollar bill through. If this calls for a mere re-sealing then I'll be happy. Just thought the cracks in the sealant for such a young stove was odd. Anything else to look out for? Best regards, Burnout.
