Just an update I am out of luck with too much official action due to not being able to find the reciept and I already tried repairing it with furnace cement (doesn't work).
Swamprb and others made the suggestion to use JB weld to repair it. So here goes. I tried it today and I am going to give it a few days to cure.
I'll have to get a new gasket too. Anyone ever try woodburning stove gasket?
