    So far, five years and counting for my cheap little stove. I had to replace a high limit snap switch that I bought from Graingers. Other than removing the fans, lubing and cleaning them, I haven't had any other issues. I think I'll be drilling a hole on the side of the Horseshoe to clean that out in the near future but I think the leaf blower trick has kept it relatively clean. A few burnpot mods recommended by Dexter has helped tremendously!

    I think the driving factors of lifespan are going to be:
    - availabity of replacement parts (stock up now?)
    - epa , city, or other laws that limit burning and don't have proper grandfather clauses (its coming)
    - the phase out of our current line ups for modern devices that are more capable of higher efficiencies, less emissions, and more features like wifi, apps, hot water hook ups, grid-tie, etc etc etc that will come up and replace our 'old' skillets.
