Probably trying to keep the exhaust flap closed. Sounds dangerous not only for the heat increase inside but also the fact that the chaff and broken beans will be closer to the heating unit and burn more readily!

I keep it clean but more importantly at least for me, I tilt it back ( front feet about 2" up that a friend of mine came up with here) and start with a 1.5 minute warmup cycle, ( set on my 1 lb setting and Ive used all profiles with 2 maybe being hardest to get past City to city+ depending on origin ) and on P4 I have to stop short often or be in rolling second crack... its not the best for typical vienna but the City+ to Full City and sometimes beyond I have no problems... lol
