4 rack digital screen issue
« on: October 27, 2017, 07:22:15 pm »
Kind of in the crapper right now, prepared my nice pork to make some pulled porc.
Started preparing the smoker with the racks and whatnot... and guess what!

I plug it in, it beeps, the generator pushes the pusher however the screen itself shows nothing at all. No digits, nothing.

Anyone have a simple idea as what it can be? i opened the generator and the fuses are fine not blown.
Im thinking its the screen itself, i think its broken. Its under 2 years old, havent used it since april however.

Looks like someone hit it with a baseball bat. Circuit boards don't normally crack like that.

If the display panel didn't get hit directly with some object, or if the generator wasn't dropped; I would email Bradley directly with the photo attached. I'm sure they would like to learn of this, to try to figure out how this occurred.

Same thing happened to my 6 rack. Very disappointing. MY circuit board looked the same way
