    Wife went to open the stove and empty the burn put and the handle came off. After looking it looks like the bolt snapped along with the threaded collar the handle turns on. Our dealer said we'd have to replace the door basically, had anyone every done this? If so does the door come in pieces or assembled? 384b30cd716a74fdba8131bad1d83521.jpg e52cba39144cfa7c8cdc1f3113a86fd2.jpg 66f858ecbfbe9aa1fb86e11e11793df8.jpg cf69c5e8333249c9edcd75162209d444.jpg

    Sorry, the fire door handle, and it's a Castle Serenity.

    should be able to just drill out the broken bolt in the door, might need to get a tap to clean up the threads then just replace the bolt.

    There isn't enough material to drill out, the threaded part soap broke off.

    ok just pulled the handle off my stove and understand what happened now, yeah that will be tough fix without the proper tools. I would drill out the collar and weld a shoulder bolt to the door but I have all the necessary tools to do it. my guess is that the new door comes assembled but you can call Ardisam and double check.They may even send you a replacement door for free.

    For what is worth, this is the door assembly picture. It does seem you can disassemble, except the whole door that has that little nut you are missing. Caveat, this is for the stove that begins its serial number with 01232. .not sure if is different with the other.
