    I was going to do another Masterbuilt rant... then i ate some of this

    PID: set it and it gets done, it's that easy. You don't want to ruin a highly anticipate meal when the oem controller quit.

    ERR 2 with my MES 40

    In simple terms, when you do the rewire, you effectively bypass the built in controller (which controls the cooking duration and the temperature). The PID will be the controller when you plug your MES into it.

    ERR 2 with my MES 40

    First you do the rewire as tallbm suggested,this will cost you nothing but 10 minutes of your time. If after you rewired and plugged it in and the unit heated up, you're on the right track to get the PID. Chances are your safety roll out is good, I wouldn't go there to keep this simple.

    Poor Man Smoker Controller

    FWIW, your smoker is more likely required 120VAC 15A input power. That PID is nowhere near capable of doing the job. A no frill Auber is just about $150, plug and play ready.

    Surprise, MES 40" not heating and Masterbuilt is no help

    I don't have this particular one, but seems like folks prefer this: https://www.auberins.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=110 Also search this site for PID will turn up quite a few.

    Surprise, MES 40" not heating and Masterbuilt is no help

    If it wasn't the heating element,it's more likely the safety roll out switch. tallbm is well verse in this area, he has some detail info that will get you going again. If you really need to get going in short order, bypass the safety switch.
