If you light this, you must open the cover of burner.
You shall do this way:
empty burner. Light a few pieces of paper, throw in burning element, turn fan on manually, set adequate fan speed, throw in a few pieces charcoal, turn fan speed at maximum, when charcoal is red burning, put in pellet, place cover of burner on place, pour water around cover, there should be no smoke out of cover of burner. done!
