Height of Saputo tiles in Pizza Party 70 X 70 oven?
« on: July 01, 2016, 03:54:18 PM »
We've installed the new Saputo's (took all of 5 minutes), but have been having a problem with the door hanging up on them. The "feet" on the door hit up against the tiles...especially when the oven is up to temp. Unable to close the door when this happens. Can't seem to push the tiles down any further than we've got them now. Anyone else had this problem. Is it just that the tiles need to be "broken in"? The top of the tiles are about 7/16" above the lip of the opening.

I have had the same issue.  I think the metal in the door expands enough at the highest temperature so that the "feet" will not go in all the way.

I have not really cared about it because I use it with the feet tilted out (I think most do this) so that it is a draft door.

The door shuts completely fine as soon as the floor temperature drops down (maybe 800) and/or if you leave the door off the oven for awhile.

7/16" is excessive, mine is maybe 1/8" at most and I have no trouble closing the door. Are you sure you removed all the ashes and the insulation is not sitting on top of the metal brick supports underneath?

All of the ashes were removed after we took out the stock tiles. The left/front Saputo tile is a bit higher than the one on the right so we'll be taking them out to see what that's all about.

I had this issue initially with the door feet, and to remedy it, I applied a little force with pliers to bend the ends of the feet on a slight upward angle...the door now works great, without any "catching" issue with the feet on the front tiles.

Hope that helps...Adam

Yes. That's the plan if we find no other remedy. Thanks!
