First off, I'm an electrical novice. So, if I sound dumb thats becasue I really am!
I have a 1550W finned element heating my custom smoker. It is conected using 120v. I control it with the Auber 1800W Dual Probe PID (which I love!)
Here's an old post on my build: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/111635/commercial-oven-to-electric-smoker-build
Everythig has been going great for months. All of the sudden it will not heat my cabinet. I get to maybe 124F. It used to glow a faint red. Now it's just hot to the touch. I bypassed the pid, same thing. I tried using a heavier cord thinking it might be a resistence issue. No love.
Has anyone had their fin heater go out bad??
BTW this is the model I used:
Thanks, as usual!
