Time for new hinge assembly..,

Morning All:

Last evening while cooking dinner when I opened the dome one time to check the internal temp I heard a "POP" & then a couple of "pings"...when I lowered the dome it was WAY out of alignment so I looked at the hinge area & found this...


Two of the bolts attaching the hinge to the bands had popped off...I have been debating on changing out the hinge assembly on the other large Egg as I have a new base section to replace that one as it has a crack, but now I guess I'll replace both of them.

Have a GREAT day!

    Morning:

    Thanks...I've just been putting off doing it with the other Egg, but now I will probably do both!

    Have a GREAT day!
