Turns out a smoke flap, for lack of a better term, fell off. It was standing against the front of the fire box. All is well.

No, not yet. Right now I'm waiting on a barometric damper I ordered.

It's been kinda warm here the last few days, but that's going to change pretty soon.

I'm really looking forward to seeing it up and running. It looks to be a well built unit.

Were the damaged screws the ones that hold the cast parts on? Doors etc.?

I wonder if it would be worthwhile removing them while my stove is new, (and they will come out without the heads breaking off), and replacing them with stainless steel screws?

What do you think?

Well I took CapeCoaler's advice, and replaced the fire door screws on my new DSM. The weather guy predicted temps in the 50's so I let the fire burn out. Not being as fast as I used to be I figured something bad might happen if I left it running. :lol:
I used 1/4-28 X 3/4 cad plated gr8 bolts w/ the nuts on the outside, as suggested. I even put some nickel never seize on for good measure. It may not help but it can't hurt. I replaced them one at a time so not to disturb any gasket.
FYI when I went to install the lower right door bolt, I needed to grind one flat down on the bolt head. The angle iron which holds the brick in was a little too close to the bolt hole. My stove may be the only one like that, but best to check...........

Nothing like drilling holes in a brand new stove. DW will mostly likely give me the same look as when I ripped out the front seat in our brand new Crown Vic to modify it.
