    this is the material that i used.this material presses against the tubes. what youre looking at is the stuff that controls the secondary air that comes into you stove. 2013-01-23_14-45-17_411.jpg

    What was the issue with the flat gasket material--why didn't it work? Do you know how much they want for the secondary air control gasket?

    I will look again when I get home, but I don't believe that my stove ever had those pads. Of course, mine dates back to before the current Quad owners. Did they make any changes? Dunno.

    I remember. Nonpro and I have had some similar talks when he was considering the stove.

    Nonpro - I am betting with the newly tightened screws you will be just fine. (but I am still gonna look for any signs of those pads.)

    the issue was the person before me used to pull the handle too hard to close it and cut the gasket so there wasnt a perfect seal to stop the secondary air from coming into the firebox.

    Chrism - just to clarify - you mean the start up air, not the secondary air, correct? The secondary would be the air going to the reburn tubes.

    Well, according to Quadrafire CS, the pads for the glass clips do not exist.......they also said they didn't have a part number for the startup air gasket that chrism is talking about......sigh.

    That gasket looks like a break-down waiting to happen. I wonder if my QF has similar setup. (The stove side is the same.)
    When new, it always felt difficult and strange to use the startup air. Hard to pull on, hard to push off. Then after a couple years, it just smoothed out and worked. Mine's an insert so would have to pull it out to get a look, and that aint happening unless absolutely necessary.

    (Sorry if I semi hijacked....carry on.)

    If the shut off for your start up air is not working correctly, it will be evident. You will get a jet roar from the stove.

    NonPro - hit up your dealer. There is literally a part number for every screw on that thing.

    Edit: looks like I need to eat my hat. The break down manual does not have a number for that. Still, hit up your dealer.

    Local stove shop has "glass gasket" which is woven and about 1/2" wide.....Chrism is that what you had tried? Why didn't the flat gasket material work?

    Great pics, Chrism. Interesting stuff too see it without taking my own stove apart.
