Rope gasket replacement P-68

Quick question: I have a kit to replace the door rope gasket on my P-68. The kit says I should allow the adhesive to cure for about 2 hours with the door closed after the rope is in place. My question is, can the stove be running while the adhesive is curing, or must the stove be cool? Thanks!

If you are supposed to wet dampen the rope before adhering, I would make sure it was a cold stove (to allow time to dry). What kind of cement is it? You might get better answers with that info.
Imperial gasket cement from Lowe's. Anyway, I started the stove back up today and put off the gasket replacement for a while. Thanks all anyway.
