    Hmmm........ fire's dying low fairly quickly lately.

    Hmmmm....... something's different.

    Investigating, I did the dollar bill test on the front door.

    Mind you, I don't use the front door much unless I'm loading small splits n/s or if I am cleaning the glass.

    Hmmmmmm...... gasket seems loose near the latch.

    More "Hmmmmmmmmmm's" and I found the culprit:

    The shiny spacer that the door latch catches on is loose and is slightly tipped to the side.

    Re-seated the shiny spacer and tightened it up.

    Good to go.

    :)

    Glad you found the culprit. It's nice when you can nail the problem quickly.My headaches usually plague me for ages before I finally figure them out.
