Something doesn't look right
I don't think you have the baffle in correctly. It can be in an "up" or a "down" position. It appears it's in the down position, unless the photo is deceiving. In the correct "up" position the flames/flue gasses are literally pushed forward toward the fill door, and would have to curve over the top of the baffle and then back to get up the stove pipe. In your photos it looks like the blue flames are going straight up the pipe
Or maybe it's just installed flipped 180*? Like I said, something doesn't look right.
The other possibility is mine is installed incorrectly, as I have never seen a manual for my stove
But it seems to work fine the way I have it configured.
