I broke my brick fiberboard ..Is the stove safe to operate without it until a new one arrives?

I can't say if it's safe or not. You may get an over-fire error code. Mine broke and was waiting for one in the mail. It came quicker than I anticipated, but I managed to put the two pieces together and held it in place with an oversized washer on the screw that holds it in place. I was fortunate enough to have it break down the middle right through the hole in the firebrick. It only ran for a day with no problems.
If the break is clean, you could try and patch it with some furnace cement and a strip of metal until the replacement arrives.
yeah, what they said, if we can piece it together so its there a crack isnt going to cause a problem especially short term.
Ok I'm ordering a new one today.... BUT if it cant be patched is it safe to use without it until new one arrives ... Or will it make the hopper too hot.
its fine it is just cosmetic
