Wood Burner Stove Gasket ?

I have an air tight wood burner. The door seal is going. I need to replace the seal but I cannot find any info regarding the replacement seal's diameter. The current seal is flattened and is probably about an inch wide now. The channel the seal sits in is 5/8".

Am I safe to assume that I need a 5/8" seal. Is there a correct way to determine the diameter of the seal?

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks

If you don't get any replies, what I did when it came time to replace my stove gasket I took it to the local stove shop (Amish) and they just cut me some right off a spool then charged me by the foot. I know in your case its winter now so maybe you could just talk to a local shop over the phone and I would think they would be able to set you up.

Yup,,PAlimbhanger is spot on. You don't even need adhesive to keep the seal in place. On most stoves it just seats itself in the channel. But some stoves you do so maybe best to pick up a tube. Measure your old seal or take it with you. Any place that sells stoves will know at a glance what you need. While you at it take a look in side at your fire brick lining if your stove has them. Not all stoves do. They get broken and crumble after awhile and need replacing. For the record the place I get my stove stuff at is Amish as well.

It sounds like 5/8 is the size you need. Go to ace, lowes home depot , they sell a kit that you can do it with. Pull out the old gasket, clean the old glue and install the kit. You do glue it in, and not to bad a job.

Back in the golden days of wood stove shops darn near everywhere, sticks in my mind there were two or three different sizes (thicknesses) of door gaskets? Maybe not, too long ago.

Replaced the gaskets on my stove doors a few years ago and only found one size. No problem, as it's worked out okay.

Cleaned the channels, squizzed the glue in them, cut the gaskets to fit for length and locked the doors shut, left them be for quite awhile (wasn't using the stove yet). Still as good as new.
