I was doing my stove cleaning and when I removed the oval plate on top I found a crack that goes about 2 inches into the top. When cleaning to attempt a repair I found another one that almost crosses it at a T. Never overfired or mishandled in any way. 9 year old stove. Has there been any reports of these stoves having some casting problems? Crack starts right where the screw hold down is underneath. Never overtightened because I removed the screws when I first got the stove. Been burning would for 40 years and have never had this happened before. Thinking on drilling to stop the crack and patching for this season. New top is pretty expensive.
