The rope gasket on my stove is in desperate shape and needs to be replaced.

The screwed-up thing is the size isn't in my manual! Believe me: I've looked and looked!

So . . . anyone know how to measure the diameter of the slot to be sure to get the right one?

It's not just so simple as slapping a tape on it, is it? I mean, the diameter-measurement I need is really the rope gasket itself - right? Not, the size of the slit it fits into on the door. Right?

Or, am I totally wrong?




*Disclaimer: I have indeed been wrong . . . . once.  

Thanks!

Just take the old one to the hardware store and get one that looks like the old one might have before it mostly burned up!

I have a Rais.  The fuckers users proprietary sized gasket. So you have to order through them. To make matters worse, you have to order a kit which includes the glass gaskets as well.  I had to spend $88 just to replace the door gaskets last week.

you are going to glue it into the slot.  get a rope that will bulge out when glued in, then adjust the handle to make the door tighter or looser.

Good advice.
They come in two sizes, I always use a dremel to clean out the old glue, then put glue down and add gasket slowly making sure it sticks. When through I cut off excess, do ' final glue, the close door on it. Don't open for at least 24 hrs. Have to replace mine yearly.

A trick I came up with this year to solve unraveling at cut ends.

Cut rope a couple inches long.  Coat ends with gasket cement.  Let dry.  Make cuts at final measurement through sealed ends.  No unraveling, clean cuts.

I spend as much time there and on AS as I do here lately.

I have a couple of threads there.  They were a great help in getting a WinterWarm insert rebuilt and installed - though I should have listened when they said "Scrap it and get something else."
