    Hello

    Both door magnets on this Santa Fe have no magnetism!

    Do you think any of these from AC Moore or Home Depot below might work?

    I can send you a piece of a hard drive magnet that will probably re-energize that one or you can just leave it stuck to the factory one because they are skinny. If you have any old or junk hard drives they are worth taking apart and removing the two magnets. I can tell you how to get the backing off the magnet. Use caution with them because two will cause a nasty blood blister.

    The only magnets I have seen lose there magnetism, are magnets thats were overfired (got to hot).

    Does the stove show any signs of overfire? How old is this Quad?

    I noticed one new quad with a bum magnet Dex. I think they had a run of poor magnets. I fixed the one I ran across with a piece of hard drive magnet because they are really thin.

    Hello

    The Home Depot super magnets with a washer seem to work fine! Just removed the old magnet and housing and put the new magnet and washer on with the same screw but no housing.

    The MFG date is Aug 2005. Other than the magnets and a bad fuse it runs great!

    Find one dex. After the two magnets snap together they are almost impossible to pull apart without sliding them. I use them for multiple things... if nothing else someone always thinks they are 'bad' enough to mess with both of them and ends up with a blood blister or really bruised skin. I watched one moron snap one on his year old trucks paint and thought he could pull it off. He ended up sliding it across the paint to get it off. DUUHMY.
