    I just connected a baker stove in my basement and all was going well until I turned on my blower and smoke began to come out of the blower pipes.

    It is a baker wood stove.
    I'm attaching 3 photos.
    You can see the what I will call metal tubes in the inside of the stove and then the other picture shows you the end of them right above the door where the smoke comes out.
    I have to keep the door a little bit open in order to draw that smoke back into the stove so it doesn't go out into my basement.

    That third picture shows your problem, the steel around the welds has cracked thereby allowing combustion products into the room, perhaps someone over fired the stove. This is dangerous also due to carbon monoxide. If you can weld or know someone who can would be the route to go here just make sure it is fixed properly. Carbon monoxide poisoning isn't fun.

    Would that much smoke be coming through those minor cracks?
    When I turned the blower on, all kinds of smoke came out of those pipes, and then the smoke just wouldn't stop coming out so I had to open the door to let the smoke be sucked into the stove.

    yes it would create a venturi effect. as the blower sends air through the tubes if will suck smoke out of the fire box and put it in the room

    Is there some sort of sealant or cement that I could put on those cracks rather than having to weld it?

    That being a Wood stove I wouldn't use high temp sealer. temps in that box get above 1100+ deg. you might try high temp furnace cement. clean them cracks well before you apply. but i would have it welded when you can!
