Creosote Leak on loading door
« on: December 27, 2014, 04:28:49 PM »

I have adjusted my loading door on my one month old HE-2100 and still have creosote dripping/leaking out of the bottom left corner.  I am concerned that any more tightening will crush the door seal and ruin it.  Has anyone else had this issue and found a solution?

I have not had this problem so I don't know if this will help or not but I would try tightening up the differential so the stove fires more often.

Yep. That's where I would start at.
