Hi,

Sorry to hear about your stove. I don't know much but when the guys wake up I know they are going to ask for pictures if possible and a detailed description of the damage; the more detailed the better. They will ask for the brand and damage done. The length of burn and high temps will help, too. I thought I could get you started getting your thoughts together. Lisa

... and the kind of fuel you are using.

Edit: Do you have a barometric damper installed and do you monitor draft or have you checked it with a monometer?

What exactly is the damage? Is the stove steel or cast iron? If the doors seal well and the grate functions properly more than likely the damage is aesthetic. Steel is quite easy to repair, cast can be difficult unless you are skilled at it. Post up some pics of the damage, you will get plenty of advice on your issue and whether or not it really is one.
