converting MES to a pid - Page 2

post #21 of 25

hank,

Be sure to do a couple test runs before you introduce any meats.  Hopefully you have a Maverick 732 or similar thermometer set up, that you trust. My Auber and Maverick readouts are dead on.

ok did a tem hook upon my mes with the pid. just wanted to see if it was going to work. well it got hot for about an hour then it stopped heating  i by passed all of the masterbuilt wiring and controls so i checked to see if i was getting power to the element and i was  checked the heating element it tested bad   i was not sure if master built would would sell me a new element because this unit never worked out of the box hadto cut the power cord and take off all the ID tags and send in pics showing all this has been done   when i called them all they ask for was the modal no. it was no problem to order it it cost 19.99   its on the way it will be in 3 to 5 days witch will work out because its going to be in the 70's next week so i will be able to work on it  sould have everything rewired the right way and buttoned up by super boil weekend   i just wanted to post so if anyone was watching this thread they woulnt think i forgot about them   cant wait to get it up and going  ive been wanting a bigger smoker as i am using a 30 inch MES right now
