Screan issues on a 40" (window) 6 yr old Masterbuilt

  1. Well I have had a good run these 6 yrs but last night the screen started not reading all the dashes on the digital screen unless I pushed on it. Mine is 6-7 yr old model with screen on back top.

    Anyone have this issue and had luck disassembling the screen and cleaning it? Maybe moisture? it stays on a screened back deck. If you push on it it you can read it completely. I have dealt with other screens on other devices that would do this when pinched, etc.

    I have a major smoking coming up next week for thanksgiving and don't have cash to buy another Master built or worse. Besides that I read they may be worse than my older model and although mine worked out, others seemed to have issues.

    Hmm.  Call Masterbuilt and see if they would ship you the controller?  Might be a few bucks but less than a new unit.  I'm not your electrician guy.  Maybe others can help.
