Does it have forced air? It really should. The type door you have is just like mine and while it works pretty well when mostly closed, it cools off really quickly when opened more than half. I like it but my work no longer relies on a that late heat. Heat has to be thought of as a lubricant.

The best glassworker over there is in Northern Ireland but he doesn't teach.
Do yourself a favor and cover the castable on the door and anywhere that doesn't get abraded with an inch of fiber. Then rigidize that. It will substantially help performance. Or if you prefer White board. Don't ever cover the steel.
