MES Element

Discussion in 'Electric Smokers' started by beretta92_fs2003, Oct 25, 2010.

  1. I took apart my MES to check the connectors and I noticed the element was caked with burnt stuff. I was wondering how to clean it without damaging it. Will a degreaser work or oven cleaner work with out damage? Thanks guys.

    The heating element ?

     If it's the element i just cleaned mine w/ a steel woll pad while i hac it out of the unit.

     if its the connectors go ahead and replace them while you have it apart. Also replace the 2 wires that lead to the e;ement w/ 12 guage wire and new high temp connectors,
  3. Yes its the element itself the connectors I did replace while I had it apart anyway.
