Gas stoves can be used as a source of heat or as a decoration to add to the design of a room. If your Jotul gas stove is not working, you will need to troubleshoot to correct the problem. Problems that can occur include a bad gasket and a burnt-out accent bulb.

Bad Gasket

Step 1

Open the door to the stove and remove the four screws that are used to secure the glass frame with the hex key. Remove the screws at the bottom first, and then remove the top screws.

Step 2

Place a sheet or towel on the floor or a table. Lay the frame assembly upside down on it.

Step 3

Pry up on the four retainer tabs on the back of the frame assembly with the screwdriver. Take the glass panel out of the frame.

Step 4

Examine the old gasket and see if it is worn or starting to disintegrate. Pull up on the old gasket and remove it from the edge of the frame assembly.

Step 5

Place the new gasket around the perimeter of the frame. Trim off excess gasket material and leave 1/2 inch overlap to connect the two sections.

Step 6

Insert the glass panel back into the frame and press down on the retainer tabs. Reattach the glass frame to the stove to complete the project.

Burnt-Out Bulb

Step 7

Open the door to the stove and remove the four screws that are used to secure the glass frame.

Step 8

Remove the two retainer screws that are used to secure the socket to the stove housing. Pull out the socket from the housing.

Step 9

Remove the bulb from the socket and see if the filament in the bulb is damaged.

Step 10

Insert a new accent bulb into the socket and then reinsert the socket into the housing. Secure the socket by tightening the retainer screws.

Step 11

Reattach the glass frame to the stove and then see if the accent light will not come on.
