Stove Smokes Back When Loading

Here are a few things to look at if you're getting 'smoke-back' when opening your stove door:

  • Is the stove being filled with wood and run for a "long burn" cycle?

  • Did you open the bypass damper before opening the door?

  • Did you crack the door to allow the smoke to pull into the chimney? AND give it a few minutes before opening? :)

  • If these are all 'Yes' answers, check your installation.
    Consult the Installation and Wood Stove section of our FAQs on our Help Site, AND your stove's owner's manual.
