remember the old adage - if it ain't broke, don't fix it

The stove in my living rm is 18 yrs old, I've never done anything to the brick and they appear to be in great shape. I got my shop stove used over 20 yrs ago [it might be 40-50 yrs old] it has some spalling on the brick in it but it doesn't seem to hurt anything although I don't often have an unattended fire out in the shop.

I don't have a specific answer to your question, just the experience from my wood stoves. Some of the others might have more insight.

I have changed the brick in my stoves only when the brick has cracked all the way through. I have used them with cracked bricks also. Just felt better replacing them.
