Running the forge with both the front and back doors wide open will prevent you from acheiving a good heat, It is better to enclose the fire as much as possible while retaining access for the size of the piece you are working.
There is a removable kaowool plug for the back door, and a pedal operated front door.
Make sure you leave the fan running on 3 after you are done forging, this will prevent the heat from backing up into the fan and burning out the motor.
There is a wall wart 12V power supply feeding a custom MMS designed PWM controller feeding a 12V blower fan.
