I cleaned the sensor in my MES an it still will not heat. Where can I buy the heating element to replace the old one?

Check the wires connected to the heating element...they are known to burn off the wire connectors. It is a easy fix just type in MES mods. into our search bar and you should find a thread or three on replacing the connectors.

I second looking at the terminals . I know when it happened to mine (before I checked the wires and before I knew this forum ) I spoke to Masterbuilt and the lady seemed quite knowledgable about the unit , she said she had never heard of an element going bad and she doubted that was the problem , but the unit was out of warranty and she referred me to a repair center . Unless the element is broken in half or something very obvious , I doubt it's the element .

I've had really good luck for the many hundreds of hours I've put on my (2) MES 40's for smoking meat and testing my gadgets
Only repair was a burned terminal, but EZ fix
I remember when there were 5-10 broke down every week!
This was the problem. Thanks for the help guys. I wonder how many get chunked in the trash over this. If not for this site that is probably where mine would have been.
Glad you found your problem Josh and got it fixed...This site is full of great people always willing to sharing their recipes and smoking wisdom!!!
