Hi guys

The top plate gasket is basically non-existent on a stove I've just bought used.

Just got off the phone to the Jotul suppliers. They say the gasket for the top plate (the big flat cover that sits on top of the stove) is a rope gasket: 9.5mm @ 2m to be precise.

How do I install this gasket? Is it just a matter of cleaning out the old gasket, then placing the rope in with some gasket cement?

Yes, That's essentially it. Clean out the gasket channel thoroughly. Wipe it with alcohol, then apply the gasket adhesive per instructions and bed the gasket.

Don't stretch it, as it can stretch too thin to seal.
