Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
It is telling you that the temp is below 40 degrees F. All you need to do is warm up the temp probe to 40F and it should work just fine. Use a hand held hair dryer or a warmed up shop vac on b.l.o.w to warm it up.

Happy New Year,

    Just found this - looking for the same thing. Since it's about 10 degrees here right now, that makes sense!! Thanks so much!

    I just bought this smoker and it is 90 degrees outside and have received the same error. Any other quick fixes so that I do not have to take back?

    The smoker heats for 5 minutes or so before it shuts down so the internal temp was 160 when it stopped warming and displayed the ERR1 error code.

Display is reading EAAF. What does that mean?

If the internal temp is less than 40 F you will get his code. Warm up the heat sensing probe and it should work just fine. If not here is the contact number: MASTERBUILT Customer Service at 1-800-489-1581

I have a masterbuilt 20070106 and it is flashing a code EAAF. What does that mean?

Internal temperature must be above 40 F. Use a hair dryer on the internal thermostat and it will start right up.

I am getting the EAAF code. What does it mean?

The manual said to unplug the smoker and wait 10 secs and then plug it back in. I tried that and it did not solve the problem. However, I did leave it plugged in with that error code while I was searching the web for an answer. Over the next 5 min or so, the error code went away and my smoker started heating up as if it had no issues.

The solution may be to just let it sit for a few min and then it will begin on its own. The only variable I can think of is that I am smoking in cold conditions for the first time. It may be the case that since the smoker was outside in single digit temperatures, that may have triggered the error code. Who knows, in any case, I am back to smoking for Thanksgiving. Crisis averted.

Getting eaaf error code

Internal Temp is below 40 degrees. To remedy this, take a hair dryer, and heat up the heat sensor until it is above 40 dgrees. The unit should start to heat up. Keep it on the sensor until the unit is heating for a minute or two, it should stay on after that.

EAAF Error Code

I went to start my smoker Thanksgiving morning in Denver and I got the EAAF error. I checked all electrical connections and they appeared fine; I next removed the digital control box and stuck it inside my jacket to warm it up (was 15 deg outside) and lit a candle inside the smoker. After 20 min I put everything back together and it worked. Just remember to remove the candle inside the smoker. I plan to call Mastercraft on Monday to see if they can tell me what EAAF means.

Digital readout says eaaf

The unit will not turn on if the internal temp sensor is below 40 degrees. Warm it with a hot rag or hair dryer, or bring the unit inside to warm up and it will turn on. Once the unit turns on for a minute or so, it will work fine outside.

This isn't the ideal solution, but it will work. I don't know why they don't want the smoker to turn on when it is cold out (unless they are worried that the quick change in temp will damage the heating coil).

My smoker reads eaaf on he digital printout

I'm having the exact same problem this morning. It worked a few days ago when I "seasoned" it. I read something about the controller being cold sensitive so I brought it inside to see if that works.
