    I have a Enviro Meridian pellet stove installed in 2005 and the rope gasket around the glass has become worn at the edges. It looks as though the only option is to replace the glass entirely with part EF-062.

    How would I remove the door and replace the glass? Most of the screws are rusted on tight and one of them just broke off when I went to remove it.

    The door should lift off the short hinge pins on the left side.
    Lay it flat on a protected surface & spray all the glass retainer
    screws with penetrating oil, like PBlaster & let it soak in.
    Get yourself a hammer-type impact driver & carefully loosen the screws.
    If they're STILL tight, spray them again.
    Any screws you break will need to be drilled out with the correct sized drill bit,
    & the threads repaired with the appropriately sized tap.

    I wonder if it pays to use stainless screws.I have to disassemble a door from a brand new Englander SHSS 2400SF stove with only about a dozen fires as the gasket is already falling out. The screws are already rusted and tight.

    Use anti-seize compound on the threads when you install screws in woodstoves.
    You will be glad you did, no matter WHAT the screw material is.

    Thanks for the advice, I've got all the screws out except one with the penetrating oil. Been drilling out the last one since I don't have an impact driver.

    I got the glass out! The glass isn't damaged I'm wondering if I can replace the rope/tape around the glass? I'd appreciate any suggestions on where to source this glass tape. I can order a new glass with the tape attached but it would cost $500.

    Check your local hearth shop or hardware store & ask for "Tape Gasket." There are different widths, so bring a piece of the old gasket with you.

    Hello
    Some local glass shops can cut a piece of high temp Neo Ceram glass the size you need and it maybe a lot cheaper if you want nice new stuff! I like the high temp mirror neo ceram glass but that is hard to get!
    Here is a pic of the mirror stuff on my baby countryside.
    The drill driver is on the floor in front of it. :)
