I broke something on my Hopper lid slide last night (I think). The lid pulled out about six to eight inches and got stuck, so I used a little persuasion and yanked it open. Closed the lid and then it would not open passed the 6 to 8 inch mark again, so in my pie eyed state, I yanked harder and heard something fall to the Hearth. I found a small steel ball, assuming it's a slide bearing of sorts. Being it was throwing heat on level 3 and I was at least 1.5 sheets to the wind, I did not explore the problem much longer. Since I could not get the lid open far enough to turn the stove off, I removed the bolts that hold the lid on and shut her down. Anyone have any experience with a similar problem, I am all ears??
