Door and Glass Gasket

The condition of the rope gasket around the door and windows should be checked periodically and replaced or repaired if necessary. A one-inch strip of paper may be used to perform a test of the integrity of the door seal. Close the door on the paper in at least eight points. It is normal to feel only a slight amount of friction. The door gasket does not need to be “tight” in all areas, since a small amount of leakage is not hazardous or detrimental to the performance of your stove.

#1 Take the door off the stove and place it on a non-scratching stable counter or bench. The door should lift straight up from the hinges. It may require some moving from side to side while pulling up, but it should come off with no major difficulty.
#2 Get a flat-head screwdriver and scrape the old door gasket out. Most of the time it comes out easily. Make sure you get out all of the old cement out of the groove.
#3 Use door gasket cement and put a nice bead all around in the door gasket groove but not too much so that it will spill out when the new gasket material gets put in.
#4 Press the new gasket material firmly in the groove. Do not leave any gaps and cut to fit. Do not stretch the rope. Let it fall in place naturally. Wipe away any excess glue.
#5 Let it sit for a day or until dry.
#6 Put the door back on the stove and shut the door.

Door Glass Gasket Replacement:

#1 Remove the door.
#2 Use a phillips screwdriver or a nut driver (depending on your needs) and gently remove the glass by removing the retainers.
#3 Remove the old gasketing. It should just peel off. Many times they just fall off.
#4 Remove the paper backing and stick the gasketing around the edge of the glass.
#5 Replace all the screws and retainers.
#6 Replace the door and you are done.
