Consult the parts list in your owner's manual. Some pellet stove technicians say that you need a gasket on the blower outlet flange, and some say that you don't. The pros: initial reduced air leakage, initial sound dampening.
The cons: gasket will compress and deteriorate, causing the blower to loosen, with increased vibration, noise, and air leakage. Don't use a gasket.
Tube of High-Temp Red Silicone RTV Gasket Maker for 4 or 5 dollars (Permatex #81160 is one of several brands). This product is rated for temperatures up to 650° F. Apply a thin bead on the blower flange only, wait 10-15 minutes for it to "skin over", and then bolt the blower to the stove. Let it cure for a few hours before firing up the stove.
You will have about 90% of the tube of gasket maker remaining, for your next project! USERS USE OF THE PRODUCT IS AT THEIR SOLE RISK.
