Also make sure the grate and under the grate are clear. Make sure the gasket at the back of the grate is there. Everything I am seeing is lack of good combustion.
I cleaned out the holes in the grate when I got it, so they're ok.
The grate was separate from the stove when I got it. I put the grate in, and I know there is no gasket. Where can I order one?
I assume I need to shut it down and let it cool in order to install the gasket and check that the fan is clean and under the grate is clear. Is that correct?
Thanks a ton for the info. I've been through half a pallet of coal in the last couple of weeks or so.
