Removing the stove door
This can be done in one of three ways. Either lift the door straight off its hinges, or push the hinge pins upwards and remove the door. Sometimes the doors are bolted on, in this case undo the bolts and remove the door.
Remove the glass
Lay the door on a flat surface (please be aware that the door will be dirty). Using a screwdriver remove all the screws that hold the glass clips in place and then carefully remove the glass.
Remove the old rope
Carefully remove the larger outer door rope. If you have also bought the glass seal rope then remove this too. If you are just replacing the rope then leave the glass seal in place.
Cleaning the rope grooves
Using a wire brush clean out the rope grooves until they are completely clear of debris. If you have access to a drill and a rotary wire brush this will be very effective. (PLEASE wear eye protection)
Preparing your new rope
Measure the rope against your stove door and cut it to size (leaving a little extra).
Applying the Adhesive
Using the Premium Rope Fix adhesive provided in your pack apply a line of glue all the way around your stove rope groove. Please make sure you wear gloves to do this and ensure you don’t get any glue on your clothes or in your eyes.
Setting the new rope and seal
Start at the bottom middle of your stove door, place the rope into the groove and press it down into the adhesive, continue this all the way around your stove door. Cut the rope to size and push it into the remaining gap making sure you push the rope down well all the way around. If you are also replacing the glass seal then repeat as above in the glass seal groove and ensure it is firmly pushed down.
Replacing the glass
Carefully remove your glass from its packaging and remove any labels. Place the glass down gently centrally into the desired position. Place the screws and clips back into the holes by hand and tighten up with a screwdriver. Be very careful not to over tighten these screw as this may cause your new glass to crack!
The door is now complete. Please allow 12 hours for your adhesive to dry properly. You can then replace your door and light a fire. You should notice a big improvement in your stove’s efficiency.
