I like the easy of servicing the magnetic latch side doors have. Unfortunately the older CB1200s have the side mounted magnets mounted in a plastic case the clips into the metal brackets. The plastic clips break and the plastic melts and warps from the heat! Fortunately there is an update kit. It is called:
Quadra-Fire 1200 FS Magnetic Latch - For side curtain air deflector # 812-3821
These new magnetic latches have the magnets surface mounted with no plastic to melt or break! :)
Now the doors stay closed!
Has anyone else done this?
