    Is my LEM a LEMON???

    Sorry for your experience in dealing with LEM on a obvious manufacturing defect. I purchased a 15 pound Kitchener stuffer from Nothern Tools in 11/2011, it came with steel gears, black in color. In looking at the LEM, Grizzley and Northern Tools Suffers they all seem to be the same thing with...

    I can't keep my pellets lit

    Smokinfatman, I have the exact same problem with my new MES and the pellets, seems like I am always relighting it during a smoke. I am beginning to think the chip loader would be less trouble. I have tried all the tips I read in your thread with the same result as you seem to have had. I look...

    New Style MES Shocking!!!

    Dave, Good point, it looks like the wires to the burner come up from below in about the center and if I remember right there is a cover plate screw in the center bottom. I am lucky my brother in law lives close by and was willing to bring it over on his way to work. Other than that I am pretty...

    New Style MES Shocking!!!

    Dave, Agreed. I checked the ohmed the element to the case and got 33K ohms, pretty high resistance but I would have expected infinite. I took both of the covers off the back, one is the element connections and the other is either the high limit or the thermostat. Nothing out of the ordinary. So...

    New Style MES Shocking!!!

    Went out this morning to warm up smoker for some jerky and when I got the time and temperature programmed I noticed the display was blank and the GFI in my garage was tripped.
