Cracked Fire Bricks

Cracked fire bricks are a common issue, however you should only attempt to replace them if they have deteriorated to the extreme i.e. if they have badly or completely crumbled. Common causes of cracked fire bricks are over sized logs, over loading the stove, over-firing the stove or transit damage, but do not fret if they have cracked after the 1st or 2nd firing! As long as in the main they are intact they will be serving the purpose that they were designed for maximising and concentrating the firebox temperature.
