Loose band

edited 10:10AM in EggHead Forum
I have had trouble with the band on lid of the BGE coming loose and slipping off. Is this a normal problem? Does the band have to be tightened ever so often?


  • Ken, you probably need to just tighten it good and tight. Stainless nuts and bolts are easy to damage with overtightening,, but I cranked mine down pretty good when I installed them and so far,, so good. The threads of stainless bolts will stretch when a nut is tightened and may be difficult to loosen,, but it should be easy enough to snip them off if needed in the future. I'm bad about ringing nuts off. I usually tighten them as tight as I can possibly get them,,, and give them another half turn. After re-reading my reply,,,,,, I'm sure I have cleared this up for you:^)
