I'm looking to purchase this VC Radiance 2600. It has a cracked burner plate and does not light any more. I spoke with the current owner today and he tried to call around Alaska and out of state some... no one carries the burner for this model any longer. I've read all about how it's difficult to get VC parts due to the company changing hands so many times. Does anyone have recommendations of discontinued part suppliers or know if a plumber/handyman could sauder or patch the crack somehow?? Here's a link to the unit and pictures of the crack: http://anchorage.craigslist.org/hsh/3571667643.html Thanks for any advice you can lend!
