Hi all, 
I took apart the burners on a 425 stove for cleaning and there is a very delicate felt like fabric gasket between the burner and the pipe manifold. What material is that?  I thought it would be a paper gasket but is much more delicate. 

Thanks

A white gasket?  If so, it's most likely asbestos, so just don't play scratch and sniff with it and you'll be fine.

Flammable liquids, open flame, what could go wrong?


I've missed you!  But I'm reloading.

That is what I suspected.  Is there a substitute?

I think those were on the newer models, so probably fiberglass or mineral wool--not asbestos. Keep it damp if you're worried.

I usually use a little wood stove gasket cement on that join. Keeps that annoying candle flame from under the burner.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Hi GH,

That should do the job. It's also great for sealing a candling suitcase stove gen tip, and fixing those stinky joints in the venturi tube of a 200.
