You may need to try this solution to see if it's a problem with cross sectional area at some point:

who never learned the right way ?
Having learned the the hard way, if your whole outdoors lay-out does not work for you, immediately come off of the transitional area with a vertical chimney at least 6'
above any obstruction/high point outdoors and try it again ! If it works, fine the 'problem is in the Thermal Mass, it may only need more drying, or it may have too many
elbows as built.
If it does not flow well with a Vertical chimney immediately off of the Transitional Area, then you do not have your cross sectional area figured right,
or you have a problem in flow within your Transitional area, a very common area for trouble, this is an area for 3Xs the Cross Sectional Area and sweeping curves with
very smooth side walls, think sheetrock !
See also the other suggestions on the thread this came from here: http://www.permies.com/t/29861/rocket-stoves/rocket-mass-heater-rockety - some of the stuff I already mentioned to you on Facebook - increase space between top of heat riser and barrel, fuel feed / burn chamber x-section area..
Also, the leaks you mention may be significant..
Hope some others can chip in with their thoughts..
I'm thinking to put 2 meters at 45 degrees, and then a final 1 meter outside vertically (which would take it above the roof), while keeping most of this rise inside the heated area.
Going straight up would not be ideal here but I'll leave that final section uncobbed so it will be easy enough to change if it proves necessary.
Thermal Mass ends at a " T" fitting with a clean out cap were it meets the final vertical chimney . For the Craft ! Big AL
