A gas burning appliance requires several things to be in order to ensure that complete combustion takes place and your appliance is in good safe working order. From what you have said I don't believe it is set up that way, if it is backdrafting soot onto the top of the heater I bet you that it is doing the same with the products of combustion, and spilling them into the house. So what do you do, best advice I can give is to call a licensed plumber in, too many variables to deal with, you need a man on the job, ASAP.....Lou
