    I've got a older master built electric smoker that's only been used once but I set the temp at 180 and it fluctuates between 170-220 degrees. How do I fix this?

    Thanks Dylan
  2. Call masterbuilt. That is to wide of a swing unless it is still in the warm up stage.

    Happy smoken.

  3. I agree with David. Temp swings that wide sound to me like a bad control card if it's electronic.

    I read on the FB masterbuilt group that older units get corrosion & burnt where the power wires are connected to the heating element via spade terminals from expansion and contraction (heating/cooling), the person that wrote the how to write up claims that after he made new connections with screws and nuts, his unit was accurate as far as temp goes, YMMV

    The user made a video, not sure if yall can see it let me know if this link works...
