The dome on the large BGE that is. Dome keeps wanting to fall down. Has the hinge worn out or is there a way to tighten it up? See-Yaa

    Hey Mikey. Sounds like time to replace the springs.
    Cheers!

    springs can wear out, but check the mounting bolt for the sprinp as it loosens and tends to tilt in causing that to happen. also get a level on the egg, purhaps its stating to lean forward, it doesnt take much. ive had all three off those happen, one sring fatigued enough to snap once.
  • Your hinge is probably fine. Tighten the two inside nuts on the bolts that hold the springs, they're loose. You can see the bolts wobble when you open and close the dome.

    your egg is an older model too i believe, be aware they changed spring sizes several times til they got it right if your getting new ones

    Now thats funny right there, I don't care who you are. Even better use cialis and it'll keep working for up to 36 hrs.

    Call your Doctor if it stays up any longer than 36 hours though.

    Let me know if your egg has insurance so that I can file a claim.

    P.S. This medication is not for human consumption, so don't even think about it
