My brother in law bought a brand new Gen. 1 Mes with a window from QVC.when he got it only worked twice before it started cutting off after a few minutes of use.well Masterbuilt made him cut the cord and take the info plate off the back and sent him a new Gen 2. a long story short i ended up with the Gen. 1. my plain is to disable the wiring it has now and rewire it with a new PID i will not use any of the wire or controls that masterbuilt put on it. this should safe and i wont have to worry about anything shorting out because everything i install will be to code and be where if there is ever a problem i can fix it. i will post pics and what i did as i go. it may be a little bit because i have to get over christmas before i start ordering parts. if any one thinks this is a bad idia or has any idieas please jump in.
