Can you buy a replacement heating element for the masterbuilt smoker

  • Marc Sep 29, 2012

    I have a Smokehouse Masterbuilt Electric Smoker 20070211 with the heating coil problem. I do not want to pay $189 + shipping to fix it. its brand new un-used still in the box. If anyone want to buy the racks or anything on it you can have them for half of any advertised price plus shipping, or you can take the whole unit for $72. I have it listed on craigslist at http://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/app/3... Thanks, Marc

Hi,
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.

    So I called customer srvice and they said that the part number in the book is a misprint and that the heating element is non-replaceable. Hmmmm. Sounds like a cheap way to sell ya another smoker!

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: no smoke

Try this...

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.

SOURCE: While using my Masterbuilt smoker

SgtDave - Don't feel like the Lone Ranger. There have been a bunch of people seeking either the burner element and/or the electronic controls. The burner element is available form Appliance Factory Parts, but only with the smoker box. At one time is was sold separately, but now, the element by itself is no longer available. Even Masterbuilt no longer sells just the heating element. In part, if you check your Owner's Manual or the Manufacturer's Data Plate on the smoker, take note of the Country of Origin, you'll understand why.

Wish I could have been of more help to you.

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.

Can I get replacement for the heating element model 200700106 serial GA040909


The element kit is Part # 9907079003. So first try Masterbuilt 1.800.489.1581, as they use this same element in a couple of different models. My primary source for grill & smoker parts, Appliance Factory Parts, says it's no longer available. So Masterbuilt may be your only source. But, to be very candid, that's iffy, at best. Masterbuilt is not known for having critical parts for their smokers.

I hope this wa of some help to you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Smoker was working great. Went to smoke some ribs this morning and my controller won't go above 90. Help!


Your heating element is now probably inop. You'll have to go onto masterbuilt.com and order another element. Try this site:

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
