Should the door be completly air tight?
The stove is not airtight, there are small leaks here and there, the draft takes care if this. As has been suggested any coal gas smell would be probably draft related. As already stated, when new the stove will "cure" the paint for some period of time which smells slightly but other than that no smell should be present when running. Is the coal wet in the hopper (if you put it in dry and it gets wet) or moisture in the lid? If so this is an indication of insufficient draft, the barometric damper should be fully closed when any Sulpher smell is present, if not you are losing draft and most probably that is the cause of the smell.
As has already been suggested, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE TWO WORKING CO DETECTORS AND BE CAREFUL!
