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.

HOW LONG DO YOU COOK A TURKEY


Hi Kathy.

Happy Holidays. The answer to your question is 'it depends'. On size of turkey, how you cook it (deep frying is faster than roasting, for instance, while smoking is really slow), and how you're judging it to be done. The most effective, and safest way to assist the cooking is to have a meat thermometer that can be inserted into the deep part of the ,er, white meat (the word police tagged me here) to monitor when it gets to a target temperature, usually in the 160-170F range. If possible, it's a very worthwhile investment to get a remote probe thermometer, with a cable that snakes out around the oven door and displays the meat temperature. Opening the door all the time to check temperature lets the heat out and runs the cooking all day.

I'm a big fan of the Alton Brown/Good Eats recipe
Good Eats Roast Turkey Alton Brown Food Network if you have the time ahead, the brining really makes for a moist tasty bird, and the actual cook time is usually between 2 and 3 hours, depending on the bird size. The initial high heat sear makes for great browning and crisp skin.

As a general rule, allow 20-30 minutes after baking for the turkey to rest before carving (cover in foil during this time). It'll cook a bit so as not to burn you while carving, and the juices re-absorb into the meat. (carve right away and a lot of the juice will run down onto the carving surface.

Bon Apetit!

No current temp


Inside the battery case is a "reset" hole. Use a paper clip and push it in while the temperature probe is on. The screen will flash and the unit will synchronize once again with the probe.

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!

I have an Mi212 remote meat thermometer and it no longer gives me the temperture only 3 initials like KKK something like that which looks like a code.


I had the same problem with mine. As soon as I replaced all 4 batteries, hit the reset button on the probe unit, turned both off, turned the receiver unit on, then turned the probe unit on, it started working fine.

I used my Polder meat thermometer in my gas grill. The fat off the meat cause flames to touch the probe. When I looked at the read-out it said 406 degrees F and then HI degrees F. Now it just reads HI...


It is possible that the therrmometer has over shot the limit set on it .It can be spoiled because the hat was in direct contact with the probe and has resulted in the failure of the unit.

I've misplaced the operating instructions for my williams sonoma remote meat thermometer. I can't get the probe unit/base to sync with the remote transmitter or to show a temp on the base unit and find a...


This is for a model ET-903WS: Turn the base unit on first. This is the unit with the larger display & buttons. Hold the power/mode button (upper left) down until you hear 3 beeps and the display lights up. Mine then displays "BEEF" and shows 160, with 3 blinking spaces. Next, plug the probe into the smaller remote unit. You should get 1 beep, the remote will display the temperature and the base will now display the same temp where the blinking spaces were. The first couple of times I tried, the base would not display. Unplug the probe, turn the base off holding down the same power/mode button and start over. I've had to do this as many as 4 times but it has worked perfectly while I wrote this!?! I really like this thermometer because I can put the meat on the grill go inside and have a drink while watching the game and then a friendly voice comes on when the internal temp is within 10 degrees of your target and says: Your food is almost done...your food is almost done." If you sleep through that, she comes back on at temp and says "Your food I'd done...your food is done". I take most meat off at the first warning and wrap it in foil. Watch the probe and it will continue to rise for about 20 mins. Enjoy.

I have the same problem. The problem is the probe went bad. I had a friend with another sumbeam digital probe (the mavrick) put that probe into mine and the temperature reading was working properly. So, now I am looking for a replacement probe. but looks like I will have to just buy another digital meat probe.
