cracked glass on stove

reading, United Kingdom

hallo,

like my wood burner but the window's glass is cracked. i live in the middle of nowhere - makers of the stove not helpful in getting new window plus it would have to be installed properly and i dont have the know-how or money for the astronomical charge the maker wants to levy.

the glass is held in place so will not fall out but would like to stuff the crack with something that will withstand the heat. does anyone know of such a material - some sort of heat resistant glue or some such? if not, any ideas how to put my mind at rest?

thanks

I believe it should be ceramic glass.

This website gives some information about glass in wood heating units.

I put

in Google and a number of UK places show up.

ceramic glass reading england wood stove site:.uk might work better. It depends on how many UK businesses have just a plain .com ending

It shouldn't be hard for a local person to replace. I'd guess that it is just held in place with clips against a high temperature rope gasket.

I hope this helps
