I just bought a used Pioneer stove. Is there suppose to be a gasket around the door? I have a damper on the pipe which goes stright up with no elbows. The damper does not move and I don't have much adjustment on the burn as on the lowest setting I have a full grate and the stove is burning at 450 degrees. All help would be useful as I have burned wood for 20+ years.

Yes the door should have a gasket. What kind of damper do you have on it? Hand or Barometeric? How old is the stove? I assume it is manual control with an adjustment knob on the back of the hopper. If it is, turn that black knob counter clockwise about 3 or 4 turns.

I am not sure of the age. It has two knobs on the hopper, the feed speed and the blower, both work as I can slow down the feed and the blower slows down when I turn them ccw. They only turn one full turn. The damper I belive is a hand model as you turn a screw with a weight on the inside.

Those are rheostats for slowing the motors. There should also be some type of knob or adjustment screw on the back that adjusts how far the stoves coal shovel (carpet) moves back and forth with each revolution of the stoker motor. The screw and weight are a barometric damper.

Got ya! There is and adjustment back there. There is a cap nut on it and another stop on the back side. It moves 9/16" on each rotation. The motors are noisey is there a place to oil them?

Yes the motors can be oiled.
Did you back that adjustment screw out?
