I agree with Brian. That metal needs some pushback capacity to it or the castings will go out of alignment. I haven't yet faced the door issue but I will soon. I have one spare but it is such a heavy thing that I want to lighten it up and go with a bunch more fiber and a ceramic shell on the hot face.

Brian, how long was that element in service? I occasionally hear about failure's like that. I've just never had one. I just usually melt the connectors.
