Hi Rene
	We also have the same thermocycler.  I believe ours is a little
over two years old.  And yes, it does have small cracks around the 96 well
plate.  The cracks, as of now, haven't been a problem.  Have you noticed
if the cracks on your thermocycler gotten bigger or have pieces of the
plastic broken off?
