Need Help! Large Round Godin

Need Help! Large Round Godin

PostBy: vmi1983 On: Mon Jan 07, 2013 2:44 pm

I just checked the mica glass on the Godin... it looked torn, so I disassembled the firedoor and checked the mica... when I reassembled the door, there is now a large
gap at the top rim of the door and stove. So I took it apart to adjust the assembly so it would seat proporly, but the old whitish-gayish gasketing is all cracked and frayed,
and it looks useless.

I hope I can replace the gasketing with good old fiberglass, does anyone have any tips on what size fiber glass will work? I have some Isinglass and the old mica has seen better days. Thanks, Matt

Not my post but seemed recent enough for your use.... hope it helps sir.

A company called DROLET in Canada now carries Godin stoves. Here is their website: http://www.drolet.ca/EngIndex2.htm

This is their Godin page: http://www.drolet.ca/ProBCA/EIndex-Bca.htm

Here is how to get parts: http://www.drolet.ca/EngOptions.asp?Type=Part

I called the number on that page, 800-363-0566, and the people there were very helpful. This number is for Inventex which is the company that handles the parts sales for Drolet. They had my Godin stove part that I needed and have shipped it.

11/2007 A site search of Drolet did not turn up any mention of Petit Godin. Searching for Petit Goding parts on the inventex website does turn up a few parts. I could not find another source for Petit Godin parts via a google search either. One might try the hearth.com parts page and lookat woodmans associates.

FWI.......

I just called the Inventex Corporation in Quebec. I spoke to Bernard. Yes.. I think he has the parts I need. 'Said he'd have to get out the book and he'll call me
later. Thanks for the help DCrane......
