    I would say you have an serious issue if you load it that full and its at 100 degrees in the morning, this is driving me crazy trying to figure out what's wrong. What size are your splits?

    I'm going to say my splits are about 5 to 6 inches, at least what I burn over night. I try to Burn bigger wood overnight. You think it's driving you crazy, I've been dealing with this For almost a year now, it's driving me insane!

    Typically my pipe temp is around 200 stove top 3-400. My Stove pipe is telescopic,it's not true single wall. I'm assuming temps are higher than it reads.

    Have you ever taken one washer off the inside of the handle so your seal is better?

    Yes I actually put a new door gasket on this season. I tried taking a washer out but it was too tight. I've also tried the dollar bill gasket check.
