    I have a friend with a Lexington Forge free standing natural gas stove that stopped working the night of the storm and i have not been able to get it working properly since. If I leave the door open a crack the stove will run properly. If I close the door, the flame slowly burns out.

    Does anyone know where the combustion air comes from, is it inside the vent pipe or is it from the room? Any suggestions are appreciated.

    That's a Direct Vent (DV) stove. Combustion air comes in thru the outer pipe & exhaust goes out the inner one. Not really familiar with the venting, but it's either 5"ID 8" OD or 4" ID x 6" OD. Check the cap. You may have an ice build up that's blocking the intake.
