I noticed the following gap when I was cleaning out the burnpot this morning. I'm a little concerned as I do not remember seeing this before. I've had the stove for little over a year. I want to get a good idea of if it is a problem, how to effectively describe the problem (to the stove shop), if it is fixable, and finally can I be using my stove while I wait for it to get fixed. This is really frustrating to a relatively new stove owner. Thanks in advance for any feedback!
