It's been burning pretty good, around 200-230 exhaust, stove around 400-450 on the sides. I check it all the time when in the basement when I am home.
Yes, it was so big, it pushed right off the end of the burn plate and jammed against the front of the stove, between the doors! Funny, there was very little ash in the bin, I just empitied last night. It was all clumped together this morning. I even had to level off the burn plate, it was so mounded up.
I think the furnance kicked on a few times and made the stove go into Idle, so the coals didn't get pushed as far on idle. Will have to check feed rate and idle mode again.
Sorry no pics, didn't think, too concerned about getting it fixed. The fire didn't go out, but sure made a mess with overflowed coal.
Made me think of "The Christmas Story" (ya know, you'll shoot your eye out!), when the father sees the black smoke coming out of the grate "Who Turned the Damper Down , It's A Clinker!!!
Gotta luv it.!
Now it really makes me laugh!!
