Hello,
My brother recently got a very nice jotul 118 from 1979. It’s in good shape but the door doesn’t want to close tight, you really have to push it. After looking at the door for a minute , my best guess was that the gasket material is too big. Does anyone know what size door gasket material we should have in there?

thanks

If like the F602 it may be 3/8".

Does anyone know if there is supposed to be gasket material around the top plate, the one that’s removable?
