Having issues with a NOMEX gasket replacement on my XL
I install a new one each year at this time when I clean up the egg after winter. I always end up setting fire to it doing pizzas!
Each time I take a sander to the rim and make sure all the remnants of the old gasket have gone, then I suck off all the dust with a hoover and finally I clean with acetone.
The gasket on the bottom went on fine, when it came to the top there where sections where it wouldn’t stick. As I live in the UK I keep a stock of 5 or 6 NOMEX gaskets as I always have people bring them back from the US for me, so I even cut small bits from several others to ensure the gasket I was using wasn’t at fault. Nothing would stick.
I re sanded and cleaned the top before finally sticking the gasket, it’s still not stuck in places but I’m hoping the weight of the lid may help.
I’ve never had this issue before, any idea what could be causing these none stick areas?
Thanks in advance for any help!
