cracked plate setter

I noticed I have a crack in my plate setter. It just appeared. Is there a way to fix this or will I need a new one? It is almost all the way across. This is for an XL. I would appreciate some advice.


  • If you think the crack is due to a defect, you should get a replacement under your warranty.  If you know you dropped it or something, then maybe someone can suggest something like breaking it and then repairing it with furnace cement?  Good luck!

  • I didn't drop it. It just showed up the other day when I was cooking ribs low and slow. It is about 3 months old.

    I had the same thing happen to my XL plate setter.  I never dropped it (if I had it would have broke into pieces).  My dealer handed me a warranty replacement right away.  No problem.

  • My Dealer has asked me to E:mail a picture. I will tomorrow. I live 35 miles from dealer. Wife says I'm going christmas shopping saturday so I can drop it off then. Hopefully they will take care of me.
  • This happened to a Large plate setter that I had and I just fixed it with some JB Weld and it did the trick.

    You're not worried about JB Weld being exposed to the high temperatures the plate setter likely sees being so close to the fire?
  • I wish mine would break so i could get an adjustable rig. :)
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
  • My dealer warrantied my cracked plate setter. All is good.
  • Dealer replaced mine no problem.  Glued the old one with JB weld, it works great.
