Parkray room heater - seems to be burning more coal than ever before,constantly boiling the water which then has to be run off.

Solid fuel room heaters with a back boiler can have fairly complex air and damping controls. Driving older types was just as complex as driving a car, though slower, with the boiler damper, flue damper and air control.

In time manaufacturers wanted to widen the appeal of the products and began to refine the designs and make some of the functions automatic or semi-automatic.

I suggest you revisit the instruction manual and if you can't make the fire slumber, or damp it down so it sleeps for the night or close down the hot water, it is probably something inside has seized or broken.

Using excess fuel and constantly boiling the water is a sure sign too much combustion air is reaching the coals. If the coals glow brightly from the fire base excess air is entering the ash space or getting in below the fire basket. If the base is cooler and the top of the fire is hotter the air is being drawn across the fire. This is difficult to avoid if the design uses an air curtain to keep flame and soot away from the door glasses but it could mean an internal air passage needs clearing.
It could be time to take the heater apart for a thorough clean, inspection, replace gaskets and any corroded or broken parts including the clay liners.

Good luck!

Problem with fire staying lit. I start the fire in a chimney starter. after they are lit and i dump them into the smokey joe and put the lid on the fire slows or goes out. The vents are open. I have...

You may be emptying the chimney too soon. Give it time to ignite all the coals. If you spread out the coals too soon, they will not support each other to stay lit. You also need enough coals for them to ignite each other if one goes out. Every briquette should be touching at least one other unless you are doing a long, low-slow roast where you have a separate fire going to heat replacement coals.

Fire goes out gets real smokey then fire comes back on

You need to adjust the air pressure screw in the pump filter housing,should be running at 5 pounds,low pressure will make it smoke and go out so turn the screw out.Also,check your lines for cracks.

Help need some beginner tips in using the Smokey Joe Weber Grill - charcoal

I am the mutha of all smokey Joe grillers. I love this little machine. The secret is to place your coals on one side of that little jewel. Get em hot and do your grilling thang; then place them critters on the cooler side of the grill to get all mellow till the throwdown. The holes in the top are pretty dang handy. If that smokey joe gets too hot close off them holes and cover up that rig. I used to take along smokey joe to the gulf shores of alabama down to the red sand lagoon and feed my little ones with hot dogs burgers and alabama smoked sausage. Best little thang on the planet. Somewhere in south alabama my little smokey joe is cooking away hotdogs and sausages fer my children and grand children. I may never see my little grill again. I won't find another little grill that can brang as much fun as my little smokey joe grill. Just add a small amount of charcoals ans let em get gray. Keep that grill clean. Brang plenty cold bevs. Party on with a Weber!
It lasts fer generations. Now where the hell is my smokey Joe? Damn younguns! LOL!

Dryersmells smokey/hot.

Lint buildup inside the unit can cause all kinds of problems. Have it taken apart for a good cleaning and inspection. A dryer fire is no fun.
