What model Harman boiler are you using? Must be a hand fed unit? Most problems come back to draft or should I say lack of it. Sometimes changing brands of coal or size of coal or even new batch from same company is different. Check all flue pipes and chimney and look at the intake area's to make sure they are clear.
