I bought my MES 40 on black Friday. Received it 5 or so days later. Lurked on the forums fora bit while I was waiting. Seasoned the smoker when it showed up. Unplugged it and put the cover on it while waiting on other purchases(Maverick733). While I was lurking on these forums I saw the mailbox mod... well then it was build a cabinet for the smoker(i don't have a carpenters bone in my body)...So after much ado I put the smoker in the cabinet this evening. Fits great just doesn't work. Somebody shoot me . It has some sort of a electrical gremlin. It will turn on, but once I try and set the temp it turns off. When I try again it does the same thing and then clicks etc until I unplug it. I have no Idea what happened to the darn thing. I am going to cross my fingers and hope that CS is there in the morning and can help me out.
