SOURCE: I have a little chief 9800 top load smoker and

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

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.

SOURCE: 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

I have experienced deforming of the plastic/rubber outer portion of the LEFT socket of the power cord where it connects to the heating element of my Big Chief smoker. I have two smokers and it has...


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

It is not uncommon, for plugs that connect direct to heating elements. The left socket is the high resistance side, and heat is generated, so the socket deforms. The cord is made in china, and they are cheap.

The permanent fix, would be to hard-wire the the heat element wiring to a new style heavy duty cord, rated for 20 amps

Smoker will not heat. do I need a heating element?


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 stevennwendy09@comcast.net if you need further instructions , I have fixed 6 of these with the same problem

Why can't we get smoke out of the Mastercraft smoker. We have tried it at 120 no smoke, 130 degrees it smoked for a bit. we have opened up the vents half way & changed to smaller chips. Now what (the...


On Master Craft Smokers, you need to put the wood chip in when you first turn it on. The heating element will be on trying to bring up the temperature and will start burning the wood. Also open the vents all the way to get the element to turn on more often. 130degrees is very low for smoking anything. Most meat needs to be 170 on the inside to be considered done. Try cranking the temp at the beginning and turning it down after that. After the first couple hours the meat should be considered smoked, then it just needs to cook.

Bradley smoker that shuts off for no reason


Yes I have an answer, Rather than whining to the world, why don't you just ask the Bradley company--don't you think they would know? I know first hand they can help and they do care a bunch about their customers. Odds are you have not programmed it correctly or have it plugged in incorrectly (wires switched).
