How do I stop Gasket Ends from Fraying?

How do I stop Gasket Ends from Fraying?

PostBy: SJ Coal On: Fri Sep 26, 2008 2:00 pm

I replaced my gaskets on my stove last year and by the middle of the season the ends of the gasket on the top loading door frayed back about a 1/2". I am going to replace them again this year but I was wondering if there was any trick to keeping them from fraying. It isn't like nylon rope where you can melt the ends to stop them from coming apart.

You may try sealing the ends of the 'rope' with whatever glue you are useing.. just dip or work the glue into the fibers on the ends , then when you close the door to hold the entire gasket in place, put a small piece of plastic bag over the wet ends of the rope so they won't stick to the stove body, only to the door.

An old piece of gasket rope was taking to a new piece of gasket rope.....


The new piece of gasket rope asked the old piece of gasket rope if he thought he would last one more year....

The old piece of gasket rope replied........




































'fraid not!
