Description: These high quality gaskets are of medium density and 6′ in length. When the stove door is closed the gasket helps to provide an airtight seal. If you don’t have an air tight seal, more air will get into the firebox which will increase the rate at which you burn through wood. A proper seal will increase the efficiency of your stove by a drastic amount.
Why we like this product: These gaskets match the quality of their OEM counterparts but are less money and more available.
Installation Notes: Before installing the new gasket, be sure to remove the old gasket and it’s crucial to remove as much as the debris from the channel as possible. Warm water and steel wool is a successful combination for removing the sticky parts. Once the debris has been removed, apply a medium size bead of gasket cement across the entire channel. Start from one corner and work the gasket in all around the channel, being careful not to the stretch the gasket. Once the new gasket is in place, simply close the door to let the gasket cement properly adhere to the gasket- it is recommended to leave it like this for 24 hours before using the stove again.
