Large Fire Ring and Fire Box Are Cracked

My large BGE has a crack in the fire box and the fire ring. Normally, I would take these down to the BGE store in Atlanta and they would replace them for free. These have a lifetime warranty on them. The problem is that the Atlanta BGE store has been closed for months. I emailed the BGE warranty department weeks ago and I have not heard from them. Any ideas of where and how I can get these replaced? I would love to get back cooking on my BGE.

Thanks,
Kirk

    I would imagine that you're still able to cook currently. Not sure I'd get it nuclear hot though. But for regular cooks it shouldn't be an issue. Most people don't rush and put the replacement parts that they get from the warranty in any hurry. I'm guessing any store that sells the BGE can process your claim with a few pictures and proof of purchase. People with more experience I'm sure will chime in as well. Good luck.

    Call BGE customer support directly. They will send you an email that you can send to a local dealer so that they can order replacement parts for you.My firebox cracked as well a few weeks ago and after emailing them I called and they took care of it. It may take a while to get the parts depending on when your dealer receives its next shipment from BGE.

    A solid local dealer is the key to warranty claims. They know how to work the system in order to receive replacement parts in a timely fashion.

    Keep on cooking while you get everything sorted out.  It's not going to hurt anything with a cracked fire box and fire ring

  • Does anyone know if and when the Big Green Egg Corporate Store at The Big Green Egg Headquarters in Atlanta, GA will open?
