    Hi Folks.
    My first posting to this forum. I'm a Morso Panther owner living in Ireland so I get great use out of it as you can imagine. We've had the stove for about 5 years and this year we started to notice that when we opened the door to put in new wood smoke started to billow out into the room. Any ideas anyone.

    thanks

    Welcome aboard,
    When was your chimney last cleaned and/or inspected?

    Have you had a new stove/fan installed in the house?
    A friend of mine tried everything, and finally got rid of their stove because of 'billowing' smoke when they opened the door.

    It was all caused by their new stainless steel yuppie professional gas stove and its exhaust system.

    Something has happened to effect your draft, that's for sure.

    Cheers and a early Happy ST. Patricks Day!
