Take off the electronic control unit and make sure the probe is still connected (unplugged and check the pins for damage). After reassembling the unit everything should work fine. My guess is that the probe is not properly connected, Once it was properly connected, the actual temperature showed on the display. Hope that helps.

You can test the element by bypassing the thermostat. The element should come on and stay on, probably glowing cherry red. If it will continue to do that for an hour, then you know the element is good.

The problem sounds like a classic thermostat problem. It will come on from cold and up to temperature, but as it drops, the thermostat doesn't click back in because it is stuck open. Its sensitivity is gone, but when it goes cold, the temperature change is big enough to close the circuit.

Sounds like you've got grease burning in the bottom of the smoker. Take it apart and clean it out.

Unless you are in a VERY cold climate, you should be at 100+ degrees within a few minutes- even with all vents open. I know it should go without saying, but make sure the door is closed and latched/ with a good seal around the frame. I would reach out to Masterbuilt for a replacement thermostat/controller module.
