My buddy gave me his 5x6 to try and I can't get it to stay burning. I'm using pellets and have had a few problems. The first is I can't get it to stay lit. I have a MES30. I pulled out the wood chip loader a bit and opened the chimney completely, but it still went out. The one time I got it to start it got dripped on and went out. To solve this I put a piece of aluminum foil over it, but wasn't able to get it to stay lit. I really want to get this thing to work because I've read all kinds of cool things about it and I'd like to be able to sleep through the night. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
