    Tinkerer through and through is all Dave, but thanks buddy.
    Stare at something long enough and it makes sense, hehe. At least if it was built logically anyway.

    Crappybrittle plastic either couldn't take the heat, was side loaded during install, or a bit of both. But all four corners busted off.

    First I'd reconnect the corners lightly to whatever original break lines i could. Then I'd use tape to seal the holes, fill wit the powdered ca binder and recoat with liquid again.

    Anyway, annoyed I had to spend a few hours fixing a relatively new appliance, but happy I didn't have to buy a new display,, yet..
    Cheers men.

    One year warranty? I would be kicking up a storm about that and demanding another display.

    But those emails aren't fit for a thread, hehe. The repair was cause I don't want to wait for the weeks it's gonna take to convince them.

    So I woulda put a metal strap across the ends as well.
    Funny how things like that quit happening as I got the hamfisted youngsters out of the house!

    Funny you say that Tom, my boy was quick to proclaim his innocence, before I even asked...
    Hehe, a little bit of a guilty conscience perhaps.
    Good idea on the metal strips too. If it refails, that will be repair 2.0..

    It reminds of repairs to instrument panel controls on cars. Gotta get pretty creative!
