Default wind cover question

i know that wind covers are typically used to retain heat, but every time i try to use it in a session the wind cover always puts out my coals..its becoming quite annoying lol so any ideas?

im using an MZ 28'' hookah with a phunnel and 3-4 coconaras and reynolds hd wrap if that makes a difference

Are you sure your coals are fully lit? I have never had this problem.

Are you using a big enough windcover for the phunnel or is it resting on the coals?

never heard of this happening before.

does the windcover have vents or holes in the sides or top? if its something just like a makeshift can or aluminum foil windcover with no holes, the coals may be going out if they aren't getting any or enough oxygen.

Is it a Tangiers sized windcover or just a regular windcover? Does the bottom of it touch the ash tray?

Yea pictures are needed. Must be doing something wrong here, I don't see how it wouldn't work unless it just cut off air flow.

For some reason I think the windcover isn't touching the ashtray and it's resting on the coals.
