Replacement Heating Element

Discussion in 'Electric Smokers' started by magnum3672, Jul 8, 2015.

  1. Hi, I have a Landmann 32930 and it seems to have a short in the heating element. Every time I plug it in and the heating element starts to cycle it will pop the ground fault. I am not going to try it on an outlet without a ground fault because I'm worried about ruining something but I am interested in looking for a replacement part. I'm hoping that it will be cheaper than buying a whole new unit (or upgrading). Or if anyone has any tips to try and find/fix the short that'd be great too. I'm hoping to get this resolved quickly since my Costco just started carrying pork belly!

    Thanks guys you're always so great

    Did you check all of the electrical connections in the smoker....
     
  3. As many as I could find and they seem to be in good condition, no corrosion or black scorch marks. I may have missed some though since the system seems a bit archaic to me.

    I've called Landmann 770-606-8903 and they have replaced my heating element-  TWICE  but at no charge.  Both times it failed- it happened when I turned it on, so I was able to make other plans for dinner.  I would hate for this to happen in the middle of a 12 hour smoke and not know it happened.
