I replied to a similar post, but in addition, get rid of the thermistor if possible.

Please check the rating of the CMC and differential inductor and if possible, use a lower resistance inductors.

By the way, please check your primary clamp connection.D2 should be connected to the anode of D3. Please refer to AN49 for further tips.
