Hi there and welcome!I have a Masterbuilt model 20076015. I believe that my control board went out. After alot of searching, I have been unable to find one. Does anyone have a fix for this?
Beat me to it. I was just about to recommend tallbm . I had the exact same problem, and he sorted me out and walked me through everything.
Thanx. Looks like my connections at the hearing element fried. Don't know though if that's why my controller doesn't come on yet.One thing to check (if you already have please forgive me) is that the connections are good. I had bought a Sportsman's Warehouse MES 40 last year before christmas (okay, the wife bought it for me as my christmas gift). It worked great exactly 2 times. Then the third time I went out to smoke ribs, it wouldn't fire up at all. Being an IT guy, I always check Layer 1 stuff first (wiring and connections).
Outlet working? Check...Plugged in good? Check...Still nothing. So I got out my screwdriver and unscrewed the controller. Unplugged it, plugged it back in...MAGIC!!
Don't ask me what happened, maybe the ghost in the machine didn't want ribs (Bad Ghost! No Biscuit!) that day. Anyway, it fired up, and (Knock on Wood) has not given me any problems since. But, in the event it does die, I am looking into the PID thing you guys are talking about.
Take Care and Check Six!
That's a common corrosion area. Lots of posts here about it. What do you mean by your controller doesn't come on? There is no display at all? No lights nor any sign of life?Thanx. Looks like my connections at the hearing element fried. Don't know though if that's why my controller doesn't come on yet.
I think your controller may be gone OR you have some issues at the lower circuit board.I'll look. I replaced the connectors at the heating element with stainless high heat connectors. Still Nothing at the controll pannel.
