Have you tried adjusting the hinges and/or the latch?
I adjusted the latch and still leaked. No matter how tight i made it.
What about the hinges; I have found them more critical than the latch. One needs to take the time to ensure that when you are messing with those adjustments that the door is closing evenly all the way around or it will leak.
Ok i will try that, have you cleaned your tubes? If so what did you use?
When you do, since you have tightened down the latch, back it off, then go easy. It may take a bit longer initially, but 1/16 of an inch on the hinges will make a considerable difference in how tight the door is. Take a turn on each hinge, then try closing the door; you want it to take a bit, but not a lot, of pressure to close it. After you have the hinges about right then you can fine tune the fit with the latch.
I have a number of different boilers in different investment properties so I keep an assortment of boiler cleaning brushes of different sizes and stiffness. I just use a medium stiffness brush that fits the tubes.
Ok ill try adjusting the hindges, i shut it down cause of the leaking smoke and couldn't get it stopped and started cleaning tubes cause i thought that might have something to do with it.
Good luck, I have to sign off for a bit will check back later.....
Did you get the hinges adjusted? Did it stop your smoking problem?
Well, i found my problem . I had to clean the tubes out. Did that and it has been fine.
Thank you for your help
Can you post a pic of the door? On my EKO I covered the rope with silicone
