Has anyone experienced trouble pushing the digital setting for the 1-5 heat level? Last year and this year, sometimes when trying to adust the 1-5 heat level, it does not respond. I push and push and push and nothing happens. Then I come back to it and it works fine. Just wondering if this control pad is going bad? The stove is 6 years old. Is there a way to clean the electronic pad? Question #2: The felt that is under the combustion fan ( very thin gasket ) usually breaks or falls apart into a couple of pieces when taking out fan for cleaning. Has anyone tried making a gasket out of head gasket material that you use in a car engine? This gasket material is much cheaper. You can buy a roll of it for the same price of 1 gasket. The auto gasket withstands high heat. Would this work?
