Downdraft when starting woodstove

NY, United States
1 responses

I have a Quadrafire woodstove perhaps 15 years old.  Chimney is all metal, correct height capped and cleaned at start of season.  This year I experience significant drowndrafts when trying to start a fire.  I can feel cold air comming down into firebox.  Tried rolled paper, small starter fires, slightly open firedoors, etc to start draft,  but end up filling the house with smoke.  Where should I look for a solution?
