After cleaning are you sure grate is install correctly. On Ka-6 it'll cause uneven burn issues

I'd start at square one.... disassemble, clean, check all holes, check under grate for ash build up, check & replace gaskets as needed. Even check stove pipe & draft. Don't forget to check the blower itself. Are the blades clean & tight to the shaft?

All fires are representative of the air pattern being applied.

Correct the air pattern and all will be good. Some good tips already given. :)
