Got all that delicious meat seasoned up and ready to smoke and my MES decides to crap out. Got to go find the stuff and fix it so maybe i can try again tomorrow.
Where did you find the wire and connectors. I've been shopping around -- just in case -- but have not found wire that is large enough gauge nor connectors that are large enough. Two different hardware stores have the right type of connectors, but in a size that is half as big as it needs to be. One store had heat resistant wire that was 14 guage and rated up to 90C which is less than 200F. I think that loses on gauge and heat.Got new wire and connectors and fixing to start going back together w/ the mes .One wire burnt off the connection.
Sounds like a good upgrade you should pass around. I doubt upping the wire size would ever hurt but it sure will make the electrons flow alot easier..Wow ,
If i had known how fast the MES would heat after changing to 12 guage wire i would have done the repair the day after i bought it.
