Anyone have any good ideas as too how to keep my AMNS from burning out in my MES 40? I get the pellets going real good and then after placing it on the bottom near the heating element, it will burn out after 10-15 minutes. Now, sometimes it work like a champ and will go for 12 hours......other times it will burn out after just a few minutes. I know it seems like it's suffocating, but at other times/days/ it works great.
I have moved the chip tray out a bit and messed with the chip unloader, too. I think it may have to do with the direction and severity of the wind.....just looking for ideas. When it works, it's the best.....
I have the top vent open completely as well.
