MES took a dump

  1. My MES shut down in the middle of smoking butts. The digitalreadout shows that everything is non, but tem does not rise. I have the back off and I am looking at foam. There are two little metal boxe4s and a narrow opening at the bottom. don't see how to get in the boxes or how to tech. Any ideas???????

    I'd be willing to bet that one of the wire connections at the heating element fried. This is not a new issue with the MES. There are a couple of threads here on repairing it, it is a fairly simple fix. If it's still in warranty, I'd call Masterbuilt first - they have a great reputation for customer service.

    You're not the first to have that happen. If you sort through the electric smoker forum, you may find the post with pics and all. Usually seems like a relatively easy fix. Good luck.
