Removing the Broken Glass from the Door Panel

To begin, you will want to remove the door, so open the latch and lift the door up off its hinges, being careful not to lose the small brass washers. On the inside of the door you will need to carefully pop out the little clips that secure the glass with a tool, like a flathead screwdriver. With the clips removed, you can now take out the broken glass. When replacing the glass slide the new panel in. Next you will need to replace the clips which will secure the glass in place.

Replacing Glass on the Side or Back Panel

Replacing the glass on the side or back panels involves a slightly different approach. Firstly you will need to remove the side/back panel to access the glass. You can do this from within the fire where you will find 4 Allen key screws on the large (6 on the XL and XXL models) that secure the panel in place.

If screws are tight, try using a lubricant like WD-40 to loosen them. Remember, if you’re dealing with side or back panels, it’s essential to have someone hold the panel in place while you remove the screws as it can be difficult to hold the panel and remove the screws at the same time for one person.

Once the screws are out, carefully remove the broken glass and insert the new one in the same way as outlined above. Then re-attach the panel using the 4 or 6 screws, keep in mind that the thread on the nut is small, so only a few turns are needed to hold the panel in place. Double-check that everything is secured and in the right position.

Reassembly and Final Tips

If you have taken the door off, you will need to slide this back onto the hinge pins and ensure you still have the brass washers in place. It might also be a good idea to re-apply some grease that was included with the fire to the hinges to keep this moving freely. RB73 recommended to do this once a year and aside from emptying the ash, and giving the flue pipe a quick clean every now and then is the only maintenance required for the Quaruba. Congratulations! You’ve successfully replaced the glass on your RB73 Quaruba Outdoor Stove and it is now ready to be used once again. We hope this guide was helpful and made the process easier for you. Remember, safety first – always handle the glass and stove components with care. If you encounter any difficulties or have specific questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to your local RB73 dealer or who you purchased the stove from.
