Smoke Generator Problems
« on: May 22, 2010, 10:02:44 am »
Well I'm on my second Bradley Smoke Generator in 2.5 years.  First one stopped working after about 3 months now the second one just went belly up.  I put 5 hours of wood biskets in the darn thing.  Started it up went back and checked it 20min later and it had pushed all but 3 of them right over the edge in to the pan of water.  I'm not real happy put what can I do?

I have an OBS and my button sticks all the time, I just push on it real lightly until the puck advances and make sure the button pops out and all is good.

Hello Dakota

Is your bisquette advance button sticking in?
Open the smoker generator up and give it a good cleaning, pay close attention to the microswitch as shown in the link CRG has supplied
