SOURCE: Element won't heat on Masterbuilt smoker

I called Masterbuilt and they said they no longer sell the elements. you have to buy the cabinet @ $189 for the 40" model. I decided to pull my element and see if i could find one that would work by going to an appliance repair parts store.

When i pulled the element, i found that the terminal that plugs into the element was burned/melted in two. i replaced the terminal end, pluygged it in and tis working fine.

to remove the element, you need to remove the element cover/chip loading chute first. its easy, 2 sheet metal screws and 2 nuts and 2 machine screws. one of the nuts/machine screws is a little hard to get back on when you reassemble but it can be done. after the cover is removed, you will see 3 screws where the element goes through the back wall. only removed the left and right ones. do not loolsen or remove thecenter one. after you remove the 2 screws, you can coax a small amount of the wire leads out into the open and you can inspect them to see if they are broken.

if the problem is truly a bad element, you will have to find an element somewhere. i cant help with this except to say that Masterbuilt customer service says they are negotiating with their supplier to see if they can sell the elements seperatly. they hope to have that resolved by summer.

hope this helps.

SOURCE: Masterbuilt Smoker Model 20070108 Digitial Controller not working. Worked the first time, then no power. I hear a beep when I plug it in, but no display.

I had the same problem this morning. I seasoned it two days agao with an outside temp. of 50. This morning it was 8 degrees and when I pluged it in there was no readout. I removed the digital unit from the top and heated it with a hair drier and it worked when I reinstalled it. I think it had some moisture in it although the unit has been covered the whole time. I am going to call Masterbuilt tomarrow and see what their answer is to this problem.

SOURCE: My Masterbuilt electric smoker stopped heating will cooking

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.

Masterbuilt smoker error message EA2


EAA2 means connection to the meat probe is lost. Either a broken, burnt wire or the probe itself. Check the probe wire carefully to spot a break.

Probe reads to high compared to my other meat thermometers


Thanks for the great question. While I am a avid smoker and outdoors men I can tell you that most of these gauges are not real accurate and only measure ambient air temp. Also the placement of the gauges in the upper portion of the smokers will give a higher reading because heat rises. My best suggestion is that you use a stand alone meat thermometer for guaranteed great smoked meats. You can also measure the temp inside the smoker using a stand alone thermometer and read your guage at the same time. Than you can use adjust the door thermometer by turning the center of the probe on the back with a pair of plier. You should see a nut head or a locking nut that allows you to hold while you turn the face of the thermometer to recalculate it. Some of these may not be adjustable and you can purchase a adjustable replacement online.
I hope this has given you a better perscpective on these gauges and will help solve you problem.

Unit beeps continuously


I had the very same problem and some web research suggested my unit was dead. However, I called Brookstone and they informed me that a faulty probe is typically the problem. I ordered a "Replacement Probe for Grill Alert (SKU# 558783)" which cost $15 (plus shipping and tax). This solved my problem, was well worth it as I like the Grill Alert, and I cooking turkey tomorrow!

Masterbuilt electric smoker is brandnew plugged it in runs for about 5 minutes then flashes EAA1 and showing the temp is 32??


Had the exact same problems. I took off the electronic control unit and made sure the probe was still connected (unplugged and checked the pins for damage). After reassembling the unit everything worked fine. My guess is that the probe was not properly connected, therefore it was showing 32 deg all the time. Once it was properly connected, the actual temperature showed on the display. Hope that helps.

Is there any way to increase the maximum operating temperature on the electric masterbuilt smokers w/ electronic controls?


Unfortunately no. What temperatures are you trying to reach. Most smoking of meat is done at 225-250. What is the maximum you can obtain? Keeping the unit out of the wind and cold, better insulation, stopping any leaks, is about the only way to do it.

Hi,
I'm a smoker expert having entered in competitions. Thermometers built into the lid are inaccurate because you want to measure the temperature at the same level the meat is at. Heat will rise and will give you a false reading at the top of the lid. Get a digital thermometer that has a cable and a probe on the end. Cut a small potato in half and stick the probe through it so the point exits the potato and is balanced when it sits on the grill. Then run the cable outside to your thermometer. Shade the thermometer from bright sunlight. If you don't want to do this you can simply get a regular thermometer that will measure at least to 225 or more. Stick the thermometer in the top vent of the smoker or if there is no vent just drill a small hole in the lid. Put the thermometer through the vent or hole in the lid and add 10-15 degrees to allow for heat buildup. Example 240 degree thermometer temp will be about 225 at meat level. You may have to experiment with these readings. Happy smoking! Go to my favorite website for smoking.....Google search " Virtual Bullet" and you should be at the Weber Bullet site. Hank

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.
