Hello Folks - My husband and I bought a used Jotul firelight 12 for $1000 two years ago off craigslist and we love it! (It's the top and front load model, with the foot pedal). Last week, we ordered the 2 interior burn plates which were getting warped and starting to crack. We took the front plate out no problem - it's the one with the design on it that looks like an eye. The one behind that, which surrounds the catalytic converter chamber, was a bit harder to remove but, being warped, we were able to wrench it out. I just picked up the 2 new parts and wanted to surprise my husband by installing them before he got home. I just spent 20 min trying to get the interior plate into the stove through the front and top openings. It does not fit. It is the correct part and is the exact size of the one we pulled out of there. I am starting to think we need to pull the entire back off the stove to get it in. Has anyone done this before? All advice is welcome.
