Question about Masterbuilt 20070106 Electric Smoker

1 Answer

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.

The unit worked the first time, when I seasoned it according to the instructions. The next time I went to use it, I heard a beep when I plugged it in, but there was no display on the controller, it appears to be dead. I checked all of the connections and everything is hooked up correctly. I used my Masterbuilt electric smoker 4x and went to use it today and my controller was flashing heat but i couldn't use the time or temp is there anything i can do?

    I discovered that the temp control unit is very cold sensitive. It usually requires a little preheating prior to use. But it work fine afterwards, I have not had any problems.

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.

Take the display back to where you got it from and swap it out with a display model or something. Having a display that controls temperature and a timer is basic electronics in the modern world. Who ever builds these things should be ashamed.

Need to reset passcode on skylink g5 garage door opener

G5K Reset

  • Remove the batteries for 2 minutes
  • Remove the T-shaped cover at the back of the keypad
  • Below the ABCD switch, there is a 3 prong jumper
  • Move the jumper from [Left & Centre setting] to [Centre and Right setting]
  • Put batteries back in
  • Enter [7 6 5 4 #] (2 slow beeps must be heard, if not, repeat the process)
  • Move the jumper back to [Left and Centre setting]
  • Wait 2 hours and the MPIN will be [0 0 0 0 #]

If the reset did not end according to my instructions, do it 2 or 3 times more. Remember, the battery has to be out of the unit for at least 2 minutes before doing the reset.

To change the PIN:

  • Enter the current PIN, (factory default PIN 0 0 0 0), press *
  • Enter new 4 to 6 digit PIN, press *
  • Enter new PIN again, press *
  • You should hear a long beep

Note: You only have 5 seconds to complete the task otherwise it won't work. If you failed to complete it, simply do it over again.

For example, if you are changing the PIN number from 0000 to 123456, enter the following sequence, 0000, *, 123456, * , 123456, * .

Keep in mind that you need to do this within 5 seconds only.

If confirmed, the backlit LED flashes and the unit emits a long beep.

My smoker does not smoke at 220 degrees it did fine in colder weather

Either the heating element or the controller on top of the smoker has failed. This is a chronic problem with Masterbuilt electric smokers. That's probably the reason it on has a 90 day warranty.

You can purchase the part(s) from Masterbuilt or from Factory Appliance Parts

Hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

Smoker was working great. Went to smoke some ribs this morning and my controller won't go above 90. Help!

Your heating element is now probably inop. You'll have to go onto and order another element. Try this site:

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.

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 smoker model 20070910 with controller error code eaaf. email:

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
It is telling you that the temp is below 40 degrees F. All you need to do is warm up the temp probe to 40F and it should work just fine. Use a hand held hair dryer or a warmed up shop vac on b.l.o.w to warm it up.

Happy New Year,

My fireplace was purched in 2005. Since then I have replaced the Vanguard Thermal/rheostat blower twice, the last time was last fall. It is now going bad. Is there a problem with these blowers? My next one...

I have not heard of a problem with the blowers or a recall. But depending on what unit you have, and who you purchase the blower from, perhaps you could get a warranty so that you aren't spending out of pocket everytime. The original Vangaurd manufacturer, Desa International, went out of business in 2008, but there is a new company that took over some lines of the units and are still making the blowers for most of them. They hold a warranty on the blowers if you purchase is from a Distributor. I hope this helps a little!
