  • Go back to your dealer and get a new gasket for free,take the dome off the base to put on your new gasket.After that you can align the dome and base while you reassemble your EGG.

  • Geoff, The replacement gasket included should work fine,Just clean the gasket surface with acetone and remove any leftover glue,use the 3M super 77 spray adhesive and apply the new gasket. I would remove the dome from the base while doing this to …
