WM SGO-7 Rumbling ALOT!

<span style="font-size:16pt">I have a WM sgo-7 which for the 3 months or so has been rumbling quite a bit. It works fine but its gotten to the point where I can here it running thru the radiator above it on the second floor. It seems that giving it more air helps but then the shutter is open to like 5. Any thoughts?? Thanks

    Rumbling

    Yeah I had it tuned up a few months ago. It seems to be lacking air somehow. The rumbling quiets down a lot when I open the chamber viewing port. Any thoughts? Thanks

    If it smooth’s out when you open the observation door, it sounds like there’s too much positive pressure over the fire. This could be caused by incorrect firing rate, improper draft adjustment, a blocked flue passage/s or a partially blocked chimney.
