Is this familiar to any other wsm owner ?
Have to take a better look tomorrow, maybe i was just hungry...
New. I looked again today and theres definetily some kind of bubbles under the paint, i already send email to Weber importer.
To me this sounds like a manufacturing flaw, cant think anything else. I have not left it out in the weather and its not even used much.
Im very intrested to see how the importer will handle this.
When I bought my WSM back in 2005, it had some chips on the lower edge of the dome. Weber sent me another one. While I was waiting on it to arrive, I put some black high temp paint on the chipped area and used the WSM. About 2 smokes later the black paint was also sealed with a thin layer of smoke deposits as well. Still have that replacement dome new in the box in the basement. Been using the "chipped" one since day one.
Same thing for the door. Where they stamped those ridges in had a crack along one edge. When they sent the dome they also sent a new door. I finally used it to make the e-WSM mod last year.
