    So what's up with this Muss? I have a Leyden coming in in a few weeks. Should I worry?

    Well, being the president of the Procrastinators Club, I just got around to do or should i say try to do a thorough cleaning. Following the manual, i took off the cover to the exhaust blower to clean the inside & lo & behold there was a sealed gasket covering the inside to the impeller(fan blades). Too bad cause the heat i had from it this past winter was beyond my expectations but i know i somehow have to do a total clean up job . I burnt 3 different pellet brands & had no problem but with 3 dogs around, i have to clean the guts somehow cause i'm sure some parts must be furlined. Got your PM awhile ago Pete, thank you for that . Tomorrow i'm gonna fire off another email to 'em . Appreciate your concern also Zeta . Stay tuned :down: Muss

    So if you don't mind me asking, what is that telling me? there's not supposed to be a sealed gasket? And while your at it, what is a sealed gasket? Maybe this thread went right over my head :bug:

    Thanks!

    Muss,

    I ran into the same thing on my Avalon Arbor, which is pretty much the same as the Leyden.

    If you are careful enough, you can use a straight razor blade to separate the gasket from the housing.

    I had a spare on hand before I tried this though, just in case I damaged it.

    Good luck.

    Sealed gasket is a complete gasket, i.e. like a cover. Muss

    If I am not mistaken it is just a paper gasket right? Why not just get some high temp gasket material and make your own?
