I just picked up my mini's ceramic top off of mini Max. And this..what the heck??

I can (don't think it shows in the pic) see the pieces under the therm.

Ceramic top is padded

I barly touched it and it just crumbles some more. Does not really show it but it did.

I can't dig this!! These mini's aren't made on the cheap are they??
Guess I'll be making a call tomorrow.

    My only thought is, you put the cap or the DFMT on a little to enthusiastically at some point and cracked it. Might not have even been noticeable at the time, but after a bit of use, a chunk finally fell off. The "extra" that came off when you touched it was probably just the rest of what was already loose. Just a guess of course. Hopefully, that's the worst of it!

    Hey, maybe Samuel did it. :)

    Naw. It literally is very brittle. I'm not touching it anymore. I gently put my daisy on now to get through my dinner.

    I'd be upset too... my neighbor across the street had his top flip off and cracked a notch our worse than that 4 years ago... he only leaves the daisy wheel on it and never covers it... has stood up to the all the elements without getting worse.

    I chipped my large with the smallest of touches. I patched it with BGE Paint from my dealer over a coat of JB Weld and it's been fine!

    SOAFS! I liken that to when a guy watches America's funniest home videos and sees a guy take a baseball to his boys. :blink: I know every guy feels that. :whistle: I just felt that sunken feeling you had when you saw that piece missing.
  • BacchusBacchus Posts: 6,019
    oh yes, "to cover or submerge in water" I have indeed. ;)
  • OMIGOD! REALLY? :ohmy:
  • I need to repair some very minor chips on mine (lets just say I learned to use a butter knife and not a screwdriver to unstick my dome)and would like to paint the chips. Do I just go to the mothership store and buy some paint?

    Looks to me that your dome came crashing down :whistle: The bolt on the daisy wheel caused the chip(i've seen it happen) :pinch:
  • cookn bikercookn biker Posts: 13,407
    Not sure if I agree with that Doug. It has not crashed downon my watch..wich is all the time. Thanks for your thought though.
