Thanks Hog! The door is the brushed nickel radiant model. It was a bit pricey, but it looks pretty sharp. If you look at post #67, the second and third photos show the original crack. However, it is now covered with stove paint and can hardly be seen. I tried to take photos of it, but it doesn't show up that well. It is welded shut from inside the firebox, but I am not sure if the crack was ground out etc. from inside. I will keep an eye on it. The baffle seems to look the same as my old one, in regard to design and the number of holes. I will have to count them to confirm. There might be a difference in the baffle design due to the size differences in our fireboxes (your Summit and my Pacific). As far as getting your baffle replaced, can you not just pick up the kit from the dealer? The dealership here just brought the new baffle kit (during the re-install) and didn't take away the old one. I could have picked it up from them earlier, once it had arrived to their store. You could just pick up the baffle kit (it includes new side rail insulation and baffle gasket) and install it when you are ready. I think in the end the dealership and PE, in my case too, came through with flying colours. It did take a bit of time and effort on my part, and there were some bumps along the way. But in the end I am satisfied with the outcome. I will make a synopsis in a couple of days of this warranty claim, which hopefully will be of benefit for anyone else faced with a warranty claim in the future. With the working stove and wood heat, I now feel like the "Ayatollah of Rock n' Rolla"!! Let it snow!! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Did you get your fill of turkey?
