Hmmm, you have a MPD? yes??? did you open it before tending--did you also have ash door cracked. And YES, put the damn hopper back in--they designed the stove to be run with it. :)

Okay, so first I'll let a flame come in by opening the ashes-door, and only then I start shaking; this is what would help. I have already placed back the hopper and I have the hole open.

I'm going to give it a try!

Depends on how your stove is drafting--you seem to be just fine without. YES, slowly close any door you open.

So, I blew the chimney top off today due to a significant explosion. Nothing else happened but that.

Anyone else achieve this impressive show of incompetence?

I thought maybe it was only me. This was the first of this size. It actually scared me a bit.

Been there, done that. Cracked the glass on the Harman Mark III I used to own! :lol: BOOOM! Shook the house with that one.

Always remember to NEVER feed air to a smoldering (no visible flame after loading) coal fire. Have both doors open, close ash door first, then SLOWLY close the top door, but ONLY after you see blue flame. ;) If you do that, it will never happen again.
