Mine dose not have a gasket it is metal to metal unless you are talking about the door frame itself I just looked at my parts manual and it dose not show one either if you need one for yours you will probable have to make one I am sure that you can get gasket material at a automotive parts store or a pluming store like Webbs. or what ever in you area

I am not an expert on these but check your door latch and see if the bolt is not bent to the left this would keep it from closing tight also check your hinge it may be worn and allowing the door to drop down so the lip on the door is lower the lip on the door frame the only other thing it could be is the door is warped but I would think it would be the first two other them the third that is a pretty solid peace of metal to warp
