Avon stove may be open tomorrow. I believe he has glass in stock. But small cracks probably OK, but without seeing it I cant say for sure,

You don't even have to kill the stove to replace the glass.
Cover the opening with foil or a piece of sheet metal.
Lift the door off and let it cool. Replaced the glass, replace the door.

You can. All you loose is the view and a little bit of radiant heat.
Actually the thinner the better for heat transfer.

Who is they? We have steel inserts for the glass for both of our doors and 2 that fit Alaska as well. They are laser cut I cant remember if they are 10 or 12 ga.
