Same problem I have. I think the element or thermostat is gone. You will have to replace them. Here are the part numbers repectively:

SOURCE: Tripping the electrical Breaker

I have used the charbroil bullet electric H2O smokers for years (wore 2 out - currently on my 3rd). I won't use anything else (having used many, many others - HOWEVER - as with every product made there are things to watch or overcome. Learn to use it properly and look forward to many years of great BBQ.

Ambient (outside) air temp below 70 (depending on wind also) will affect these smokers drastically - highly recomend getting or making a "smoker blanket" (got mine at cabelas years back - if you can't find one welding blankets from an industrial supply store can be made into one) to insulate the sides - this drastically reduces heat loss and reduces the electrical load.

Another MAJOR mistake many people make is extension cords - avoid the use of them at all if possible - if not possible then purchase the heaviest gauge you can find.

Always pre-heat your smoker - Always use boiling water (or other liquid) in the H2O pan added after smoker is pre-heated - Always minimize opening the smoker once cooking has begun.

The heater element can be cleaned when cold with a very mild detergent and room temp water.

If you have the large 2 rack but are only smoking enough to use a small amount of rack space on only one rack remember that you are heating a whole lot of air - i have a couple (different size) wood boxes wrapped in foil to take up excess air space - this means less air volume to be heated and better heat control - DO NOT use cardboard boxes or other low temp combustable items in the box construction!

Make sure the house outlet you are plugging into is a 3-prong GROUNDED outlet on a 20 amp breaker.

Finally, make sure your smoker is level and remember there can be up to a 20 degree cooking temp swing in temp between the bottom rack and top rack (top rack 5-20 degrees hotter than bottom).

The heater element will cycle on and off during normal use.

Good smoking and enjoy.

Use approximately 5 lbs of charcoal or a little more that a chimney charcoal starter and let it go grey and get your grill to the temp you are looking for then add the pecan on top of the charcoal in the fire box.

Why does my electric grill trips my breaker


It appears your gfi may be rated for a lower current draw or it may be deffective. You could try changing your gfi to one that matches the 15 amps in your circuit. If this does not work you could try finding another plug around the house that has a higher rating. It would help if you knew the amount of amps your grill draws. Do not change the breaker to a higher rating. The wiring in your wall is matched to the capacity of your brakers and upgrading your breakers without changing your wiring to match the new rating could causes an electrical fire. If you are nor sure what to do contact an electrician.

Eeaf smoker keeps tripping off


Hi sally mako...
Make sure your breaker is strong enough to handle the ampreage draw of the smoker element.
Try a different receptical with a known larger breaker...
If still kicks the breaker, then remove the electric plug from the receptical and check all connections on the element and controls to make sure they are not corroded or broken and shorting out.

I have a char-broil smoker. It's not electric, though. It's a charcoal outdoor grill. I need to know how to use it. Got it at a garage sale and forgot the instructions the seller gave me. Any...


I'm not sure this is the same model you have, but it's the only one Charbroil now makes. In any case, most vertical charcoal smokers work the same way.

Electric smoker is now tripping GFCI breaker


Hi,
GFCI breaker tend to wearout and become more sensitive after time and use. Motor loads are especially hard on them. Also resistance loads such as heating elements. Your smoker may be pulling a bit more electric than it used too.
Check the power draw of the smoker when operating, if it is high then fuigure out why. It it is normal then replace the braker. Use a regular breaker if the GFCI is not required, or run a cord from an outlet that is not on a GFCI breaker.

My electric smoker keeps tripping breakers


My Brinkmann 810-7080-4 Gourmet Electric Smoker was tripping my GFI after it sat for the winter. Would heat for about 3 minutes then trip the GFI. would keep tripping GFI until it cooled down and once again would trip after about 3 minutes.
--SOLVED: took 00 steel wool and olive oil to the heating element and removed what looked like a green fungus. Element is working fine now, not tripping the GFI and will run a full four hours for smoking!
Hope this helps save someone some money in purchasing a new heating element ($40).
