Need a heating element for little chief smoker model 9800 where do I get one

Any sporting goods store should be able to provide you with one. In Spokane Washington replacement parts can be found at White Elephant. I had to replace my element and found one there for around 14.00.

I got mine at Store 2 but am sure that #1 also has them. I have attached a link. In no way am I advertizing a particular store, rather I am giving you a link to someplace I know carries the replacement parts.

Addresses and phone numbers as well as contact info is listed in their website. Good luck.

Our char-broil patio bistro grill has started to blow the circuit breaker in the house when I plug it in. It will heat up a little and then the circuit blows. Is this a cord problem or an element problem?...

Could be cord or element. If you are using an extension cord, you need to use a #12 gauge cord for this grill, or it needs to be plugged into a 20 amp circuit that is located next to the grill.

If you have the right cord, then the element may be failing.

I have a little chief 9800 top load smoker and lost the heating element in a move. There are two elements available, a 7.5" and an 8.5", but I'm not sure which size my smoker takes. Is there any way to...

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 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
