I'm not trying to scare you. I'm sure your stove is some what better than the old snowflame I had. I just think you should understand how it works. It takes a fan and forces air into a box into the burn pot first, when you do that it has to come out somewhere and it will be hot air. The easiest way is usually the exhaust pipe hopefully. But if it's not then next easiest is up through the auger into the hopper. Fire hot air against wood pellets can cause the pellets to burn up through the auger into the hopper. The one I had would actually push the flame up the auger. But I know nothing about your stove. What I do know is, I could not sleep with a blow through burning in my house. Now with my draw through I burn 24-7 and sleep well. On a draw through it sucks all air hot or cold out of the stove into and out the pipe. Much more safe.
