Yes, that's what I'm doing now. Here's a shot of the ash door open. And perhaps I am making something out of nothing, as I have never burned a stove this size nor this shape before. I am just used to stoves that don't require so much poking and prodding. Now that you said that, I would assume that the stove is designed for the operator to have to break up the ash to some degree based on the fact that it has the slots above the ash pan...

what in the heck are those open slots at the top of the ashpan door for? This is kinda interesting because another poster having trouble with bridging had this same design in his wood/coal combo unit (i forget the make now). I suspect this was made as a dual fuel unit, but I don't like those openings in the sides of the firebox :cry: Its just not what coal likes! If you ever loose your fire clean it out and take some pics inside and around that stove and we will write a user manual for you ;)

You have to get under that front grill, not through the slots. the poker has to go just over the grate. That design seems common to European stoves where primary air is allowed to also go through that front grate. Probably helps to burn higher volatile coal and briquets.

Hmmm, perhaps that could be part of my problem. I've been poking through the slots, so I'm a bit higher in the fire.

My little Morso Squirrel had the same type of grate in the font and possible the same bottom grate as yours as well.

Though I tried to burn coal in that stove a couple of times I was never very successful. Knowing what I know now I am sure I could do it. Point being? Like Franco said POKE from the bottom. I am willing to bet you will see a big difference in how the stove reacts.

I have also been looking around and I can't find much info on this stove. Though I will keep looking...

Also the fire will behave badly until you get the bed built up above that front grill.

I did some asking around about the stove and here's what I got for a response

That’s an interesting appliance, It was originally manufactured in 1979 and ceased production 6 years later in 1985.
It was sold as a small cooker, utilising a hotplate under the top cover, and was very popular in Japan. Unfortunately there is no longer a part breakdown or instruction available.
