I agree Digital unit not designed to handle a 900w heater. I did do the mod to 900w with PID and would not go back to the 500w, recovery temps and control are the best.
Bradley 4 rack Digital, 900 watt, Auber PID
Bradley cold smoke adapter
Char-Griller Smoking Pro BBQ Smoker with rotisserie
Brinkman Bullet Smoker
Weber 24”
Custom Hard Cure Cabinet for Salami
One Auber Master Temp monitor and two remotes with probes, up to ten remotes can be used.

What about the non-digital smoker...

Less issue with the increased wattage of the element?
