After 5 years of Service.....


Recommended Posts

Its time to replace the main body of my Akorn. Ok, In Feb 2018, it'll be five years of owning this Akorn. The bottom part that holds the ash pan finally rusted out. I could have lived with out it, but I figured I might as well us the warranty. Minus the ash pan holder, the main body is in good condition. I also replaced the top lid gasket. In the next couple months, I'll get a new ash pan as its starting to show its age.  

 

The holder fell off after taking this picture. It was hanging on by a thread, a rusty thread.

The old gasket has seen better days.

Was easier than I thought. Looks a lot better and seals a lot better too.

All assembled and doing a burn-in.

I think I can get another 5 years out of it? Maybe more If I keep the bottom well oiled?
