Purpose: The gasket ensures a tight seal between the door and the body of the stove.
Installation Tips: Remove the old gasket and clean the channel on the door (using a wire brush works really well). Then place the new gasket in the channel – make sure the two end of the gasket meet on the hinge side of the door. Close the door and let the gasket seal to the door.
Other Notes: This gasket, is the same gasket that Pacific Energy uses when they make their stoves. It is a graphite gasket. Most manufacturers say that, the graphite gasket is more durable and it will last longer compared to the regular white gasket found at the mass merchants. The size of the gasket is 7/8″
Although this gasket comes with a “sticky” side it is usually not “sticky” enough to hold the gasket in place after repeated use. We highly recommend that you purchase the Fireplace and Stove Gasket Cement as well. In addition, you may also want to replace the gasket around the glass (Glass Gasket) at the same time as you replace the door gasket in order to ensure a proper seal.
Also, Friendly Fires stocks Pacific Energy Screen Doors. Add a PE Screen Door to your Pacific Energy wood stove for open air burning.
Note: Wood stove and fireplace door gaskets are also commonly referred to as “Door Sealers” (Asbestos style rope that goes around the door channel).
