Smoke coming through Top Glass sides of the Glow forge with Portable filter set up

I have received my glow forge and set up everything via the Instructions. Set up a portable filter which is very close to my Glow forge and Smoke is pouring out the top of the unit in between the cracks where the glass closed. This can’t be normal right?

USER ERROR please forgive me. I had my Filter turned on but the Dial was not turned on. I didn’t realize that.


Welcome to the forum. You aren’t the first that made this error.


And most assuredly, won’t be the last, either. Glad it was a simple issue.


Welcome to the forum @angela1! I am so glad you got that figured out. I am going to close this thread for now. If you have any other questions feel free to start a new thread or email us at
