Default Stoker performance issue in sub freezing weather

Just wanted to see if anyone has had similar problems with their stoker.

Started up the fire at about 4am Sunday; ambient temps were in the high teens. The stoker kept starting up and then shutting down... over and over again. I had to stoke the fire the old fashioned way. I kept trying to get it working for the next couple hours, occasionally turning it on to see if it was working but no luck. It wasn't until around 9am or so the outside temp was around 34 degrees by then, and it started working! I don't recall ever having this problem before... not that I make a habit of cooking in such cold weather... but this sure seems odd to me. Any thoughts?
