    So... I get done cleaning, and notice one is missing for the igniter cover...

    So I sift through my ash (Weee...)

    Sift through my vacuum (Weee...)

    Then do it again because I can't find the damn thing.

    Right now stove is running with one bolt, and the cover is on tight.

    I would feel better with another bolt, anyone know the dimensions of the bolt, so I can pick one up tomorrow without having to bring my stove down again.

    Thanks,
    Moe

    Really, mine are wing nuts.

    Actually, now that I think about it, I've never had them off, just loosen enough to remove the plate, so I don't really know what they are.

    I did the exact same thing on Saturday. Found it in the hose of my shop vac after sifting through my ash can and looking under every piece of furniture.

    I feel your pain. Guys, please take pictures of your bolts / wing bolts / wing nuts, because on mine one is a bolt, and one is a wing bolt.
