What can we do if the chimney is full of ice even over the thimble?

If the chimney has an icve block you HAVE to clear this blockage by keeping the chimney warm at all times. If this is an outside chimney you may have to consider building a warm chaise around the chimney. A cold chimney will not draft properly. You have to remove all the ice and have a good hot fire. Call a chimney sweep if you need additional advise and a site visit
