Stove gasket around door won't stick?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I went and purchased 5/8" stove gasket with this black cement. I tried fastening it to the side of my chamber and couldn't get it to hold. I added pressure and let it sit for over an hour and then heated it up. Still comes off. Any suggestions on how to secure this better?

You need to pick up a tube of high temp gasket sealer (the red stuff) from an auto parts supplier. I used it with 5/8 stove gasket on my Char griller and it's still holding well.

Thanks! Do you think a fire caulk would work too? I have access to it here at work?

Is it an adhesive or just a caulk? VHT Silicone is a gasket sealer adhesive.

Not sure? Just went to Advanced Auto and got the High Temp. Gasket Sealer. Hopefully, that will keep the gasket in place.

When I have applied the rope gaskets or 5/8" tape gaskets, I have used the rutland stove gasket cement pictured here:

The trouble is, I have had a couple of tubes that must have been old or something and wouldn't adhere properly. They recently changed the tube that the stuff comes in, and I haven't had a problem since then...that is if I make sure that I buy fresh stuff to start with. Don't buy extra of this stuff and let it sit around, because IMHO it does not have a long shelf life.

Here are several links to online stores,






I would probably go with Ace Hardware myself as they are a known company...

I finally got my stove gasket on last night. In my opinion, the black cement gasket caulk that is pictured below is crap. That stuff wouldn't adhere at all. I agree, I think the shelf live of it is very quick. I went to Ace and purchased the 3/8 stove gasket ($.79ft). I went to Advanced Auto and purchased a tube of High Temp. Gasket Sealer (The red one) for $6. It stuck like a charm and the seal is perfect. I used clamps to hold together for about an hour. Check out this video I found on youtube yesterday, pretty interesting mods. to the CG; Second video.

I used rivets but I don't recommend using gasket. Instead use metal. Like this.
