Every stove may have slightly different characteristics, so what works for one, may not be perfect for someone else.
My stove is like 1995 vintage Hyfire 1, so the components may be a bit different.

One of course would be the coal. Two, when your stoker motor arm that moves the carpet was made and welded up it could be slightly longer than most others which means it would feed more coal per revolution. Three, your combustion fan may only produce 40cfm instead of 45cfm. All of these stight differences in mfg will cause these stoves to not be exactly the same.

I put all new gaskets on the grates, hopper, etc...seemed to help the burning.
