I have the MES30 Model # 0910 and it shows a replacement element kit in the parts explosion. I am sure not planning on needing it though.
I am extremely happy with mine so far, don't want to tell you how many of the old Redi-smoks I wore out before it. I have been smoking for a long time with pipe pits, got the first electric in the early 80's. I like the dependability and hassle free smoking. You can't smoke for too large a group but its really not for that. They are for back decks for familys. If you are having a party break out a pipe pit because you know everyone will have to lift the lid and look at whats cooking. Electrics just ain't made for that.
But I am happy with my MES so far, except now I wish I had the 40. A 14/15/16 lbs packer just don't fit. But after reading these boards I now know that there is miget cows located up north with 5 to 7 pound briskets. They must have shetland cows up there.
There are good things and bad things about electric, but the best thing about electric, if you have a remote temperature sensor, there is no fire to tend! You can sleep at night!
Anyway, just my two cents.
BTW since mine is the 0910, and yours is a 1011 I am guessing it might be the new model. But that is just a guesstimation
