I'm getting smoke in the coal bin again. Draft seems good. The coal was frozen when dumped in the bin. Can the cold temperature of the coal bin draw in smoke? Maybe the auger is too worn down and allowing smoke down the feed tubes? I've run out of ideas on how to fix this problem so could use some suggestions.
Just checked the airflow through the pot is very low now, and the flames are only 3-4 inches high. Draft is good. Some air is coming out of the blower inlet too so something is clogging the air flow. Does wet coal prevent air from flowing through the coal in the pot causing it to go down the feed pipe?
Right in the middle of a welding project and its freezing out!
