Rope Seal

Rope seals will need replacing during your stove's lifetime. It is important to check them at least annually to see if the seal is worn or broken. 


Most stove shops will supply rope seal and suitable glue. We also provide our own rope seal kits, which you can view on our spare parts page. To order these please contact us directly, or your local stockist. 

The Chilli Penguin Stoves use 14mm standard rope seal on the fuel loading door and 10mm seal on the oven door. 


To replace the rope seal please follow the steps below:


  1. Take the loading door (the glass door) off, the other doors can be done in situ
  2. Remove as much of the old rope seal and old glue as possible and key the groove with course sand paper
  3. Lie the new rope seal in the groove to see how much you need, if it is not pre-cut to size already
  4. Remove the rope seal and apply the glue in a continous 5mm line all around the groove
  5. Push the rope seal into the groove making sure you do not stretch it
  6. Place some weight (a couple of books) on the seals for approz 1 hour before you close the doors and replace the loading door
