I was hoping to be able to live with it. It's not a big chunk but, I didn't want to cause any damage.
We will see how it goes.
Thanks again for your input, greatly appreciated...

I wouldn't worry about it. It's not in the hottest part.  Keep an eye on it.

I have a Polar G2. When cleaning up after shut down this year I see that the lower clean out door is missing a piece of the ceramic or firebrick type material in one corner. To replace it I have to buy the whole piece which is about $275 CAD plus shipping.

My question is, it is a small piece out of the lower corner, don't even know where it went, is it something that is really important and should be replaced or should I just keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't get any bigger. Also, I wouldn't want to have to change it out in the winter months...

I have attached a couple of pictures, hopefully they help with my description.

I've seen those sharkbites drip when shutting down too. Good call on swapping them out.

5/1/21 I shut "Little Smokey" down for the season.  I replaced all but a couple "Shark Bites" and had almost no drips while cooling down for this summer.  This last winter was a very trouble free season!!  Now to get to work on next seasons wood pile and there is a new bull at the farm that I need to spend some time with to know how he thinks.  So far all he seems interested in are where the cows are.  Go figure!! ;D

No I didn't. I just took the head off the pump and turned the rotor by hand a couple of times. That freed it up and its been working since. I have been turning the pumps on at night if it goes below freezing and check to make sure the pump is turning, all okay so far. Very strange.... did it to me last year too, we had a couple of power outages in the winter and on the last one the pump sized and had to do the take apart in the very cold weather. Again, once I took the head off and spun the rotor by hand it was fine.

Just makes me wonder every time the power flickers if the pump is sized. No problems with the other pump on the line circulation. It never looses a beat :)

Did you pop the rotor out of the can? If so you should be able to see where it is binding.

I posted last year that my UPS26-99FC circulation pump on the manifold of my Polar G2 seized. Well... I shut down my furnace for the year a week or so ago. Last night they were calling for -12C so I thought I should turn the pumps on to circulate and prevent any possible freezing. The manifold circulation pump was seized again. I had to take it off and turn by hand, it was fairly tight, to free it up. Put it back on and it starts up now. I tried stopping and starting it a few times and all is good.

I am afraid of this happening in the winter if we get a power outage. I have a Generac backup generator but it takes about 30 seconds or so of no power before it kicks in.

When I took it apart, it looked real clean with no build up of any kind that I could see but, it was sure stuck. It seems to run fine until shut down... strange.
I have a new one but I don't want to install it in case there is an issue on the furnace somehow and I screw that one up too.

Any ideas ??

Them Toolkits are slicker than snot on a doorknob. The neighbors have one and even have a finishing mower for it.
