Lopi Leyden / Avalon Arbor Wood Stove - Upper Back Brick
This is the "U Shaped" brick that sits around the top combustion brick. #5 in the attached Picture
We recommend that you lay down a drop cloth and clean the firebox prior to conducting the steps below.
1 Remove the doors and place them aside. Remove the top loading door and place it aside.
2 Remove the side firebricks (and clips) and place them aside.
3 Remove the back heat deflector and place it aside (the allows for access to the nuts that hold the firebox back plate in place).
4 Remove the back brick retainer holding the back brick in place (“U” Brick). NOTE: The ½” bolts holding the retainer in place are used only to hold the brick in place. If one of these bolts breaks off, we recommend that you leave the threaded portion inside the cast iron damper assembly. Two bolts are sufficient for holding the retainer in place.
5 Remove the back brick, interram gasket and combustion brick
