MASTER BUILT 20072010

Do not know if I showed Masterbuilt 20072010- replaced the heating element and the digital readout. Still no heat. It registers as heating . The red light comes on but the temp does not increase. I put a hair dryer on inside the door and it does increase the temp. I read from ground inside the box where you connect the element wires-120v from across each wire. But only about 7 volts across the wires. Appreciate your imput.............Thanks

SOURCE: The heating element doesn't come on,

Hold a warm rag over the end of the thermocouple sticking out of the back, INSIDE the smoker. When the probe gets up to 40F or so the element will turn on and you will be good to go. The computer just doesn't understand whats up when the thermometer gives such a low reading.

SOURCE: Won't heat

I have the same smoker with the same problem. I checked the heat element with an ohm meter, it was good so just cleaned the burnt residue from the male spade connectors attached to the element with a dremel tool. Slipped two new female spade connectors over the ones on the element and soldered them with the wires attached with a 1/16' silver bearing electronics solder. Now the connections cannot become loose and burn up again. I tested everything out and then wrapped the exposed connectores with non conductive fiberglass electrical tape and covered everything with expanding foam that comes in a spray can. Easy fix for me after reading all the posts from you guys here. Good luck and go for it! All I had to buy was the foam insulation.

SOURCE: My kenmore series 80 electric dryer does not heat.

Yes, hook it up, but before you do that Vacuumn every piece of lint out of the cabinet. Also check TCO and check the thermostats for continuity. They should all read zero ohms.If one of them is open, replace it.

Also use your ohmmeter to check the heating element, It should not show an open condition.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Dryer not heating

The motor has to be running for voltage to exit the motor going to the heater. With the back off the dryer and the motor running you should read 220 volts at the heater if all safetys and thermostats are good.
There is a thermal cut out relay on the heat canister. It must read continuity also.
Remember you must remove at least one wire from each component being tested to get a true open or closed reading. If a wire is left connected you get a false reading.
The heating element could be broken and part of the heater wire touching the canister. This would cause a continuity reading and still no heat.
Finally, yes,the centrifugal switch in the motor could be bad and not sending power to the heater on the red wire.

Testimonial: "I did determine it to be the cetrepetal switch..specifically the slide for the weights was heavily gummed up with dryer belt dust. It works now."

Need a heating Element for a Master Build Digital Smokehouse Model# 20070106 Serial# GA040923


Since the - - -holes @ Masterbuilt told me they don't sell them, and after extensive seraches on the net, I found a company that is making me one for $37.50 plus shipping. (As of August 31, 2011)
Contact: david@hhelectricmfg.com and tell him you want to order a heating element identical to one he is making for Lelys. (The mountting plate may be a little different, but all you'll have to do is drill new holes in the new mounting plate.

Good luck!

Upon start up the digital readout shows EAAR and its not heating up


Sounds like the control unit is malfunctioning, possibly the circut board in the controller.
You can try a full reset. Turn off the unit and unplug it from the outlet completely, wait for a minute or 2 so the controller can power down completely.
If you get the same result when you plug it in and try again you might need to replace the controller.
Masterbuilt recommends contacting them directly at 1-800-489-1581

I need to replace the heating element. I've only had this smoker for 18 months and have not used it that much. I'm disappinted that I need to replace the heating element so soon.


it appears all the reviews i have read say that you cannot replace the heating element and they do not sell replacements , but from reading further many customers have been able to have the whole unit replaced . i would call customer support

We have the masterbuilt 700 series digital smokehouse. The wood chips are no longer burning - we have no smoke. Is the repair easy and cheap?


You probably have a bad heating element, Turn the unit on then turn your digital heat to 275 and open door the heating element should become cherry red. If it doesn't then you have a bad heating element. If you do not get a digital readout then you probably have a bad digital control panel. Both of those parts can be replaced, however i do not know the price for either of those parts. If you have neither working then you may have a short or broken wire that is not making a full curcuit. Good Luck

My heating element is not working. How can I get a replacement.


I experienced the same problem. My heating element was not working. After a Continuity Test, the Heating Coil was dead and needs replacement. I asked Masterbuilt if any heating coil replacement parts were available. They said "no", but they could offer a discounted sale on a new Smoker for about $175.00. I am still looking. A local appliance dealer said the internet was the most likely place to find one. After looking on the internet, I can't seem to find one yet. If you know of any, please let me know. Call (616) 772-1332 and ask for Bob. Thanks

Heating Element Failure


I just bought a new Masterbuilt Smoker by default two weeks ago I borrowed a friend’s to smoke about 30lb. of Salmon to then can. Ran the smoker every day for three day. ON my last batch the heating element would not work. Talk about Frustrated! The Smoker was only 2 yrs. old.

Knowing I borrowed I felt I had to replace. So online to Cabelas and I ordered my buddy a new smoker and had it shipped. I then found this website... GOT TO LOVE the internet. I saw many other people had the same problem. Found an Answer...

The Problem was one of the connector to the heating element was poor quality and if you don't clean your smoker on a regular basis. The heat and moister caused the small copper connector to corrode and the wire to come loose. I took a wood chisel and cut off all the rivets on the back. I was then able to pull the back off with no damage and access the small box in the lower back. I found the connector. Went to the hardware store and bought a replacement for .75 cents. A pair of wire crimpers and the problem was fixed. I also bought ½ inch Sheet metal screws to secure the back it was good as new. So I returned the smoker to my buddy and kept the new one. When it arrived I saw Masterbuilt has since fixed the problem and provided an access panel to the element and connectors.

Very slow getting heat up to preset temp


Remove the back sheet metal cover and check to see if the wire connections to the element are good ad tight with no corrosion, if burnt or corroded there is too much resistance and the element will not heat up fast as it should and will very soon not heat up at all.
