    Bin a while since I last posted, but I am having a weird problem with my Enviro M55 Insert.
    I noticed some chipping on the porcelain and immediately blamed the wife. She insisted that she did not bump into it with the vacuum of anything else for that matter. I was a bit suspect but had no proof. Next day I noticed more chipping of the porcelain on the door. No flecks on the floor in front just more and more porcelain peeling off and disappearing. I now believe my wife but have no idea why the porcelain on the door of my M55 is disappearing. The only thing that I noticed over the past week or so is a faint smell of smoke in the house and a couple of loud cracking sounds after a few hours of running.
    Has anyone else experienced this issue with your M55 Insert????
    I have not contacted my dealer and I think I am still under warranty but it is really bothering me since i can not figure out what might be going on here.
    Any ideas????
    Thanks

    I have the plain cast, so no problems with mine.

    There are some other limitations(of coarse) But it looks as though if it is deemed a defect. You might get a replacement, if its under 1 year old?

    OP first posted in Jan, 2011, and stated in the first post that his stove was a year old then........the plot thickens......I wonder why after 2 years it would start flaking......better waterboard your wife, Freddo!
