Difficulties setting up masterbuilt XL gas smoker

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm assembling my new smoker ( masterbuilt 20050211) and I noticed someone else on this forum had the same problem. The front legs have 3 screws then the control panel screws into them. you have to leave all the screws loose and sort of finagle it around until they line up, but I always have 1 screw that gets stuck and I'm worried about it stripping if I force it in. I tried 5 different times and just got frustrated. I'm giving up for right now and will try again tomorrow, but does anyone have any suggestions or advice. I don't think I'm missing anything and I double checked the manual. I guess it's just a pain

Try starting screw from other side of hole to clean threads. However probably just a bit of paint. The two I have had one hole or two that was a bit rough. Just screwed them in without much fuss and all is well. Actually got easier as it went in and tightened up just fine.

 

Hope all goes well.

Thank you. I did get it today. I had to try it a ton of times but I finally got it positioned right and got the screws to go in, woo!
