My mes is about 1 year and 1 month old. I got it 2 christmas's ago. I went to do some jerky over the weekend. The 1st thing I noticed is it beeped like 8 times.....I was like wtf. So I would go to set the temp and every time I would try to adjust or set the temp it would keep turning off. I finally got the temp and time set, and 30 minutes later it had heated up to a balmy 42*. I guess it's toasted....is it worth fixing or am I money ahead to get a new one. Honestly I bet I only used it 15-20 times. I'll have a hard time buying another one of those.
