Whitfield 30 Pellet Stove

I just purchased a home with the whitfied pellet stove insert. It was installed in 05 I think. It has been cleaned and has a new gasket around the door. I am having several problems. One I am getting some smoke out around the door mostly at start up.
The unit fills completely with smoke before starting I can hardley see the flame.
When the flame starts I have twice had the flame "POP" and send a puff of smoke into the room.
then burn fine.
I also see the burn pot fill up and end up with pellets spilled over into the side collectors. Any help would be great.
