There are 2 levers in Janta Chulha: 1st lever is for removal of ash and the other is for oxygen,while fueling rice husk and during burning process 2nd lever(oxygen) should be open for passing air.

It is necessary to tap the lever at bottom of the stove gradually at every 8 to 10 minutes to keep the fuel feeding and to prevent the fire from going out; moving lever too hard would cause the rice husks to spill out the bottom and disrupt the cone of stove and frequently allows the fire to go out.
