Which part of your stove have you replaced most often?

Recommended Posts

Our stove (Saey Scope) wares out the pin the latch engages with. Have to change it from time to time or the door does not properly seal

Nothing  often .  Vermiculite board once in 8 years . Door  seal  is still good .

For me door rope is the most common need, then glass,  then firebricks and top baffle plates.

 

On my home stove I replace the door seal every two years and the side firebricks every three,  gone through one baffle plate in 8 years, new one fitted this time last year.

Just got my stove ready for the winter. New firebricks again (every 18 months but I will burn coal, coke and wood), it needs a new baffle plate soon , and grate (6 years old stove) Replaced the glass after we cracked it and the rope this year

 

This year I am trying screed (concrete) fire bricks (had to cast them myself) - the woman on the phone said they would work so here goes and hope they last say, 2 years.

Our fire bricks on the side are loose. Can they be cemented back in somehow? It's one single 'brick' / slab not individual.

I leave cracked bricks in place until the literally fall apart. Cracked bricks in place still do their job IMO. 

I find vermiculite board is better .
