If it is for over fire air, it should be closed once the initial gasses are burned.

How about a picture of the stove with both doors open similar to what I posted. I still haven't seen the hopper.

I was doing that and worked well just can't seem to keep it going the shaker wasn't cutting it. Chasing the long burn. I'll post outcome after cleaning all new gaskets and pea coal. All advice is most welcome I don't know if I'm posting stuff right seem to be confusing people with my replies. And some postings aren't showing up. More &£4!;'- confusion thanks for bearing with me coal not only thing new to me this week.....

So that stove doesn't have shaker grates in it? If not you will need to do what Franco said and run a poker thru the slot(?) Just above the grate to clear ash.

I hear ya thanks I figured they been burning coal for hundreds of years I hear it's burnning underground somewhere for years figured lighting it was hard when that was easy thought keeping it burning was the easy part. Thanks with all you good people taking the time to help the coal can't win... Thanks

Does this stove have a dial for the draft and a door that opens and closes? How about a picture of the flue pipe. As franco b (I think) establish a fire and fill the hopper 'til no more coal will fit in the stove. Thanks for the other pic's, keep 'em coming ;)

...also, I see a gap and a chip in the hopper where the 2 halves meet. Fill the hole and any gaps with furnace cement. I get it at Tractor Supply in a caulking gun tube for about 3 bucks.

Hopper is in bad shape. Pea coal will extend the burn. Very important to clear ash buildup on those sloping sides as well, and then cover with fresh coal. Filling the hopper should do that.

If the fire is ash bound it will need tending frequently. Use a flat poker under that small door at grate level. Piece of steel 1/8 by 3/4 about 20 inches long.
