Well I have continuity across the inline fuse, the thermal switch, 28 ohms across the element, complete open across the 2 connections for the heat controller, the plastic around it is not cracked. Checked the pot, open there so I cleaned it and think I have it fixed, cept it's open till the pot is about half way, that doesn't seem normal does it?
Plugged it in, the light works again, will see how hot it gets, have some trout to do tomorrow. Changing the pot would be a lot cheaper than replacing the whole board, does anyone know a part number for it?
My smoker is probly almost 20 years old but I don't use it much.
Thanks for the links Ted, now that I'm retired maybe I can do some of those mods over the winter when the camping/fishing season is done, the PID would get rid of the POC temp control with the lousy pot, even a rotary one woulda been better.
Can't get those links to work Ted...?
