Well it is zero degrees and my new C3 VC stove has no draft. Chimney pipe good, clean good, vacuum good, The minute I close the door 20 seconds later flame go's out. Only used 20 fires so far. How complicated can these be ? I am totally bewildered. Coldest day of the year and stove not functioning.
Seems a couple folks have had the wool blanket get dislodged and sucked into the flue. If you can pop the stove pipe off, make sure the blanket is a couple inches below the flue, and under the thermostat probe.
