finally installing the stove, had a local company come out to replace the broken glass and new gaskets on the doors, but they took the doors off then after reinstalling them they do not shut enough for the latch to grab I am wondering if they used the wrong size I bought the kit which had different sizes in the bag.
would like to know what size goes where
I think the doors take 5/16" gasket but let's get a verification. @defiant3 ?
