Gasket size.. Old Alaskan stoker?

Gasket size.. Old Alaskan stoker?

PostBy: klotzy9 On: Fri Aug 16, 2013 7:47 am

Assembling an old Alaskan stoker got a first time coal burner. Cleaned her up, gabe her a new paint Job and now I need all new seals. Does anyone know what diameter seals to buy? Also does the door/glass have a different diameter?

Also looking for a small blower fan..: the 50-60hz. Where can I get this?

which Alaskan model do you have? Glass gasket is generally different than door gasket (Glass gasket is sometimes called "channel" gasket and has an adhesive back that wraps around the piece of glass itself). You want to be VERY careful about how much pressure you place on the glass when tightening the retainers!!! Just enough to hold the glass from moving is fine. The door gasket would most likely be a round gasket sized to whatever diameter fits (we like the gray colored door gasket which has some graphite and is more dense because it will last longer). On some stoves you will need to use a good RTV sealant to better hold the gasket in place, some stoves have a continuous deep channel that may not even require any sealant to hold it in place but using a sealant certainly wont hurt anything either way (most like the copper for its high temp rating but black is fine too).

You can always call the company since they are still in business but this is the best I can offer flying blind for you, Im certain their are many Alaskan owners here who can elaborate better or search this forum in the upper right corner for "Replacing Gasket in Alaskan Stoker" ;)

Thanks. J have tried the search and I've seen a few rebuilds, but no gasket size
Listing.

It almost resembles the cast console II, but it's old. I believe it
Just called the Alaskan stoker.

I remember some1 did a redman and painted the door haloween orange?

You can simply measure the gasket channel or bracket to determine what diameter rope for door. The glass is pretty standard channel gasket (I believe its 5/8 wide) and you merely wrap it around the entire glass and fold over the edges to stick. PS. the stick will only last until your first firing but that's OK... it does not matter once the glass is in place and you have secured it gently.

That goes at the back of the grate. Hint put some furnace cement at that joint also. You do not want air coming through that far back. If there is not a good seal you could end up with a fire in the bin. I did :(

The PDF is not working. Anyone have a pic where to install the 8" piece of the back of the grate?

Here is the manual for most Alaska stove2 but they are all basically the same. I hope it helps. My laptop died a while back so I had to get it off of my external drive.
