Question about Grilling

1 Answer

The heating element on my smoker is not working. I have traced the problem to the element it self. Contacted Master built and they said the model 20070407 is discontinued. How do I go about getting a new element for it. Everything on the smoker is in perfect condition. All I need is the element. Thanks in advance

SOURCE: electric water smoker low heat

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.

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.

I just had the same issue and almost had a Thanksgiving disaster!

SOURCE: Replacement Parts - Lil Chief

Try www.smokehouseproducts.com or any Cabela's or Sportman's Whorehouse, I mean Warehouse or any big box sporting goods store in general. The heating element is a hard one because it's probably the old style ceramic disk. We have two like that. They run on 175 Watts instead of the newer 250W using the "O" shape elements. They're $29.99 + s/h, we want to try to convert ours to the newer 'O' shape if possible. The elements are around $12.00 at Wally World. Best of luck!

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.

My master built electric smoker is not holding the 200 degree heat?


How cold outside was it and was there wind? Even though they are insulated smokers you still have to help block the wind. And was your damper open? Keep it cracked open, if it's open all the way your losing all the heat and the element has to keep running to reach temp. Otherwise inside you should had a round metal fuse n next to that should be a rod sticking out from the back wall that is your temp control sensor it might have junk on it giving false reading, just wipe off with damp cloth. Hope this helps

I got it for christmas and it has quit twice. "We are so tired of expecting to smoke meat for friends and family and having to end up putting it in the oven. The first time was the heating element....


Ideas?/ Yeah, it's apiece of junk! Electrical problems plaque the Master Built Electric Smokers. If it's not the heating element failing, it's the control panel failing. That's why it only has a 90 day warranty from the time of purchase.

As to what to do is concerned, replacing the control panel should solve the problem. Here is a link to the part and you can purchase it online.

Need a heating Element for a Master Build Digital Smokehouse Model# 20070106 Serial# GA040923


Since the - - -holes @ Masterbuilt told me they don't sell them, and after extensive seraches on the net, I found a company that is making me one for $37.50 plus shipping. (As of August 31, 2011)
Contact: david@hhelectricmfg.com and tell him you want to order a heating element identical to one he is making for Lelys. (The mountting plate may be a little different, but all you'll have to do is drill new holes in the new mounting plate.

Good luck!

My heating element is not working. How can I get a replacement.


I experienced the same problem. My heating element was not working. After a Continuity Test, the Heating Coil was dead and needs replacement. I asked Masterbuilt if any heating coil replacement parts were available. They said "no", but they could offer a discounted sale on a new Smoker for about $175.00. I am still looking. A local appliance dealer said the internet was the most likely place to find one. After looking on the internet, I can't seem to find one yet. If you know of any, please let me know. Call (616) 772-1332 and ask for Bob. Thanks

The heating element does not operate -doesn't heat


How true: I love this smoker but until the heating element doesn't work. I am on my 3rd one now. Each have had the heating element go out. Luckily the 1st 2 smokers I took back to where I purchased them and they "Cabalas" gave me a new one "NO questions asked". Now I have this 3rd smoker. Guess what! Not heating again. I decided to take this thing apart myself and investigate the problem. Since the unit is all sealed I need a Drill, dremal cutting tool to open up the backside to get at the heating element and wiring. What I found was that the CONNECTOR to the heating element was BURNED up. All wiring was fine! I believe MasterBuilt is not putting in a high enough temp connector and also the connector looks to me of dissimilar metal which will cause metal breakdown when heated. I then went to Ace Hardware and found some High temp connectors and replaced the originals. All working now!
My friend has the same smoker with the same problem ... He called Masterbuilt and got the song and dance and how much it would cost to fix - so went out and purchased a Different Brand. Knowing that I had fixed my smoker I ask him if I could take his apart .... Well and behold ..... It had the same CONNECTOR problem. I wish I had my 1st 2 smokers back to check those out also. But my theory is that they also had the same problem.
Here is 1 more problem I have seen with this Smoker ... I store my smoker on my deck all seasons (covered up when not in use). During the winter when it is cold out my smoker control panel will not come on. It always works when it was warm out. So what I have found is if I take the control panel off and bring it inside to warm up .... Then reinstall it all works fine! My theory is that the control panel has a liquid crystal that is freezing causing it not to work.
