Clayton coal/wood furnance not through heat

PostBy: cracken66 On: Tue Jan 22, 2013 1:53 pm

I have a clayton 1600 coal/wood furnance. Used coal for the past 5 years great. This year can't get a coal fire hot enough to through much heat. I start a wood fire the switch over and have to have ash door completly open to get is coal bed going, when I close door the coal dies out not completly but no heat, I have a barometric damper does'nt seem to help chimney is clear. If I use the injection blow the coal goes cold. Wood on the otherhand burns just fine nice and hot. I've got different coal but it does the same thing Any suggestions

5 years of anthracite or soft coal?
They are very different as to what is required for a good sustainable fire.
