Installing PCB in Mes-30

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My mes-30 died while I was away and master built sent me a PCB. However, I can't figure out where to reinstall it. There seem to be two plates on the bottom which can be removed. I read the instruction sheet but I'm blind so can't see the figures. Can someone give me some guidance with a brief description of where the plate is located? Thanks for any help. I'm hoping this will get me up and smoking again.

Do you have the model number of your smoker? If you have a part number for the board, or what it does, perhaps that would help people understand what the replacement process would be.


I just got mine, but I get the impression that many Masterbuilt smokers don't provide easy access to their electronics. Sometimes access panels are riveted in-place, rather than screwed on. But if they sent it out as a replacement part, then hopefully they're not asking you to do anything too involved to replace it.

Thanks for the response. I was able to replace the PCB as well as the control panel on the front of the unit. I think that's what caused the trouble. The clear plastic cover had come off the panel and I think some water got into it. No rivets involved, just screws but some were hard to get to. It's working fine; I smoked some beef ribs last weekend.

Awesome, I'm glad you got it sorted out. Enjoy the results!
