As we were setting off for France 3 weeks ago I did all the usual checks got in closed the door put seat belt on and started the engine when there was a loud noise like a drinks can being opened astounded as to what it was I was amazed to see the glass lid to the cooker had exploded leaving thousands of little squares of glass everywhere. Luckily enough no one was near it I have just rang Thetford and Marquis and as the 12 month warrenty on fitted items has expired replacement is £72 , but the good news is my son being a builder has asked his glazing supplier for a price for a piece of smoked toughened glass to replace it £15 ready Tuesday " Result !! ".

Hi Nuevo EK
Pleased to read no one was injured after the glass door exploded and you had a replacement made locally.
Hope you had a nice hoilday.

This is not the first time that I've heard of this, sometimes the hob cover, sometimes the oven door glass.

Picked up the replacement piece of Bronze Toughened Glass to-day and it fits a treat , if you did not know it was a replacement piece you would not know "£15 cash" compared to Thetford replacement £72 job well done ,

Can you believe it last Monday entering the City Europe Aire in France the front glass grill door shattered , so on the way home we popped into Marquis and hopefully they are having a go at claiming new glass lid and door from Thetford what the worry now is which one will be next ? the oven door or the bottom pan door .
