The cleanout door is closed & we'll only open it when someone is there to cut down the draft. I did it yesterday & the manometer read went to .01

Good point. Her stove will run without losing temp with ash door closed & air slider closed as well. It is getting air from somewhere. My door seems to latch a little tighter than hers.
I'm going to have her contact the thieves that sold her the stove & tell them her ash door assembly is defective & we want it replaced.
