Stove expert replied: This problems indicate that the installation needs to be thoroughly checked. Is there an airbrick on the room? Has the chimney been lined? What height is the chimney system? What flue draw is being recorded and does this match the requirements of the manufacturer? The flue draw seems poor, so it may require a fan to assist the gases to be lifted away from the firebox. These are not issues that can be blamed on the stove, in essence you have a box in which you light a fire and the gases are not getting away so the fault is likely to be with the flue system and a poor draw.

If other flues in the property then you may need to lengthen this flue to try to increase the draw.
