Hello, I am currently replacing the gasket on my comb blower exhaust motor fan, and it seems that one side is shiny (almost like laminated) and one side isn't. Does it matter which direction it is placed? In addition, there are these flaps that are not all equidistant, does it matter which way it is fitted onto the stove?

Here is the replacement I bought: Amazon product ASIN B006FXDWCO
