I need to get my new gasket on. What do I do? How do I get the old stuff off? Thanks in advance.

    Sandi,[p]Pull off as much as you can by hand, then use a putty knife or wood chisel to scrape off the rest. Wipe the surface with some rubbing alcohol and let it dry before applying the new gasket.[p]Cathy

    Cat,[p]Thanks Cat, as usual, ya'll come through for me everytime I need help!
  • Sandi,
    I'm sure you've got the old gasket off now, but did want to say, I used a pumice stone when I removed mine and it worked really great..It got it down to the smooth ceramic. Without a trace of the old gasket or any grease or anything..[p]Dylan

    After you get the big chunks of the old gasket off, try 3M's 'Rust and Paint Remover' wheel. It's a black porous looking thing about 4" in diameter and an inch thick. It attaches to a standard power drill. It works like a charm with no chemicals or other things that may soak into the ceramics. You can get it at just about any hardware store.
