Question about Masterbuilt 20070106 Electric Smoker

1 Answer

I purchased a masterbuilt smoker in Jan/2010 Model E 20070910. First time I used it had no problem with generating smoke but ever since I can not generate smoke I've tried pellets & even Hickory sawdust that I have dampened. What is my problem.

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.

My smoker does not smoke at 220 degrees it did fine in colder weather


Either the heating element or the controller on top of the smoker has failed. This is a chronic problem with Masterbuilt electric smokers. That's probably the reason it on has a 90 day warranty.

You can purchase the part(s) from Masterbuilt or from Factory Appliance Parts

I'm concerned about having the proper extension cord. Just bought 15' light duty outdoor cord with 2 prong plug-SJOW/ 13 amps/ 25 volts/ 1625 watts. Is this sufficient for the # 20070910...


There should be a plate on the smoker that tells you how many amps/volts/watts it uses. If the values are lower than your extension cord I would try it, however make sure you feel the cord after the unit has been on for a bit, if it feels warm or hot to the touch, I would discontinue use of the extension cord.

If you are in need of a user manual you can find a downloadable (.pdf) version here.

I have purchased model #20050611. Can I smoke with wood chunks only and not use charcoal? Do I put the pre-soaked wood in the flame disk bowl or the water bowl? I am used to a double barrel wood smoker...


Wood only. No Charcoal. If you're using wood chips - soak them first. No sure wood chunks will work, as they will have a tendency to flare up & burn rather than smoke.

The presoaked wood chips go in the flame disc bowl, below the water bowl. The water bowl goes on the first shelf bracket from the bottom up.

I was going to send you a copy of your Owners Manual, but the Model Number you listed does not match up with any Masterbuilt Smokers?

Enjoy your smoker,

Exactly how does the charcol come into play not exactly sure where to place it.


Debbie, unless you listed the wrong model number for your Masterbuilt Electric Smoker ... Electric Smokers don't use charcoal at all. They use wood chips, that are placed on the wood chip tray, just above the burner. The smoldering wood chips generate the smoke.

In case you've misplaced your Owners Manual. Here's a link to it that you can download and print for future reference. http://www.masterbuilt.com/pdf/manuals/07092010%2020070910%20Manual.pdf

Hope this helps you to enjoy your smoker.

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:

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,
Kelly

It does not produce a lot of smoke what I am I doing wrong, I put 1 cup of soaked chips in the hooper.the temp was 225. Smoked for 3 thrs.


Try using pellets instead of wood chips, and do not soak them, this will produce more condensed smoke, as an alternative purchase a smoke bazooka from the internet. They are about 50 dollars and this will definately cure your smoke issue guaranteed. happy smokin!
