So I inherited a VC encore 2550 upon the purchase of my new home and needless to say I am learning as I go, but I must say this site has taught me ALOT!! So thank you for that (More than the pervious owner who did not know how to operate the stove correctly, luckly I found you guys and girls). On to my problem. Upon cleaning the stove to use for my very first time I found these little broken chucks and was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction. Stove operates fine (minus the cat which is no longer ceramic rather just a pile of dust :| ) just wondering.
