The other day I was inserting a fresh ash pan and it appeared it was being blocked by something. I pulled out the bin and looked in the stove and saw a bunch of fresh coal piled up in the back of the stove behind where the ash bin sits. So every so often I need to scoop it out and put it back in the hopper. Can someone tell me if this is normal and if not, what could be causing this? Thanks.
