If the temps are warm out, you will have more unburned coal. Less need for heat so you stoker basically idles along. Here's a pic of my ash. Not much different than yours. Stokers will have some unburned coal in the ashes. It's the nature of the beast.
Yes, I thought it looked like there was some unburnt coal as well. It has been relatively warm, and I have the temp. set to 60 through the day when I'm not home so it just idles for 12 hrs a day too. The coal is blyshak rice coal.
