The #4 Little Chief element is 7 inches and more importantly is 250 watts, this is the correct wattage for ALL Little Chief Smokers newer than about 15 - 20 years old.
The #5 Little Chief element is 8.5 inches and is also 250W but is for newer models before 2006.
Look at www.smokehouseproducts.com for clarification & best fit.
For very, very old models (20+) there is a ceramic disk (175W) that heats the chip pan and is hard to find and expensive, a person would be better off finding a new one on sale at the big box boys store

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.

Here is a pdf of the smoker book and on page 4 there is a parts list with the cust. service number to order replacement parts...there is an element kit listed there, that is what you need.

SOURCE: smoker will not heat. do
Most Likely your having the same problem I keep coming across , The female connector where the heating element plugs in has either come off or has burned off do to inadequate gauge wire at the connection , you will have to remove all the factory rivets on the back and replace this connection then replace the back using appropriate sized screws to replace the back , you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need further instructions , I have fixed 6 of these with the same problem
