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: big chief smoker

I am on my third cord. I love the smokers, and own 2 but the cord design stinks. You can clean the contacts all you want, but one always heats up, gets soft, loses its spring, and causes a weak contact. When that happens, it arcs, melts, and finally burns out. You can google "smokehouse cord" and find suppliers from $17.00 to $23.00 (smokehouseproducts.com). I'd like to hardwire a solution or make a replaceable head. If somebody has a good, safe design for this, let me know.

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.

The Masterbilt 20070106 which we bought 18 months ago is "dead". There is power coming from the electrical outlet, but there is no power to the smoker. I do not see a website for parts for the...


You are not the first Masterbuilt Electric Smoker owner to have this problem. The Model 20070106 has been plagued with electrical problems from day one. Maybe, that's why it only has a 90 day warranty?

As far as parts are concerned, you can call Masterbuilt (800-489-1581), first to see if they can help you. More than likely, you will need to replace the electronic control panel on the top of the smoker and maybe the electric element, too.

Another place to try is www.factoryapplianceparts.com.

I need an element for Mod: 20070106 Ser.# GA040925


You can purchase a new heating element part # 990050051 either from Masterbuilt or from Factory Appliance Parts http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/gasgrillparts/brands/masterbuilt/
If they are still available. All of Masterbuilt's electric smokers have been plagued with electrical problems.. It's either the element or the electronic controller on the top of the smoker, that constantly fail.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

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

I don't have a lot of storage. an i leave my smoker outside?


It best to cover the smoker after it has completely cooled, if you're going to leave it outside. Make sure the electric cord is unplugged before covering it. Masterbuilt does have a cover available on their website.
