    how much fuel does it load up before it gets going again good after you close the door?

    strikes me you are hovering close to the high limit anyway when you get ready to do this and the added loading without draft is pushing you over the high limit. check the room fan make sure its not clogged, also if this doesn't work, reset the mode into mode setting "d" which will unlock the room fan control from the heat range , run the blower speed higher than the heat for a bit before you scoop so the stove will cool down a bit before hand

    The manual for the unit I use in my shop says the E-3 is a blower failure not over temp.

    11. Unit keeps shutting down

    (“E” codes on control board)

    1. Blocked flue (E-1)

    2. Blower failure (E-3)

    blower failure will cause E-3 but trust me, its a high limit error code its a very common cause for E-3 but not necessarily the only reason

    Did you remove ALL of the ash from the burn pot?
    If I remove ash while the stove is burning, I will leave a lot of embers to keep the fire going.
