Your flue is to small for the oven. It looks like a 4 inch and should be at least 6 inch.

yup, you´re right, is 4 inch... you`re saying it should be at least 6" that means I should go for 8" wide, right?

It looks like a corrugated SS chimney liner too. Get rid of that and use a triple wall chimney or box in a traditional clay flue. I realize you are in Mexico and all, but what you have there is a fire hazard.

BTW, are you burning gas and wood in this oven? I was curious about the size of the throat in the vent...that might be hurting your draw too.

That is dryer venting pipe, not flue pipe. Go bigger.

Holy smokes I think you're right....I just enlarged the images and I missed the sectioning before.

I really hope that it is really chimney liner and not dryer pipe....wow. Either way, it's gotta go.
