Hi,
I am new to this forum but I have been using wood stoves for a number of years. I got my first englander 15-W03 installed this January. I am having issues keeping fires burning hood if the door is not cracked open. If I completely close the door the fire pretty much goes out. Any ideas on what I can try to help fix this issue?

What moisture content is your wood at? What is your chimney setup like?

Not sure what the moisture content is but it’s wood that I have had in the open drying for quite a while. The flue does have two 45 degree angles right below the roof to get around a beam but then straight out the top.
Not sure if this stove needs to get to a certain temp before it burns correct? I have never owned a stove that was this efficient.

How tall is the chimney? What size is it?

How long was the wood cut and split?

What was the outside temperature

The chimney is 20’ tall and it’s 6” double wall pipe. The most of the wood I have has been cut and split for a year or more and the outside temp is high 30s low 40s.
