Cleaned out the LBGE this morning and noticed that a nasty stress fracture in the fire bowl has grown into about four stress fractures in different locations running in all different directions and suffice it to say this one will be ready for the scrap heap soon. It was very unstable as I placed it back into the EGG. The way the cracks have developed it will likely be in four or five pieces when it finally gives. My question is will the mothership make me wait until it happens or can I take a few pictures and send in a claim for a replacement now! Thanks any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
