Error E in heat temp setting
« on: November 03, 2018, 09:04:53 AM »
Just bought a bradley 4 rack and on my second cookout I have an error E flashing in the heat temp setting line. Help as I have ribs trying to cook. It had been working fine for about 1.5 hours with a temp of 194 heading towards a setting of 230. Then the E showed up, blinked and a beep keeps sounding. Dont know what to do! HELP!

Hi dstallworth;

Welcome to the forum.

Hopefully you have resolve the problem, or moved the ribs to your kitchen oven. The E error is letting you know there is something wrong with the bisquette advance system. First make sure that your bisquettes are not jammed up. Unload and reload the chute, and make sure the bisquettes are laying flat.

If that doesn't help, below is the standard trouble shooting steps for this problem:

An “E” message is letting you know that there is something wrong with the advance system. It’s the connection between the motor arm and the micro switch. Please open the generator, and take a look at that switch which is going to be a gray rectangle shaped switch; first make sure that it is connected, secondly makes sure nothing is blocking that switch and the arm. If the wires appear to be plugged in, disconnect and reconnect the connections to make sure they are secure.

If the above does not work, check the drive guide for any obstructions; such as a build up of debris in the tracks that will interfere with the movement of the system. Also check the drive guide for any wear and tear. That is an indication the guide track is out of alignment and need to be adjusted.

Another thing that may cause the error, it the micro switch. With your generator plugged in (only do this if you feel comfortable with working with electrical appliances); depress the micro switch. This is to test to see if the micro switch does work. The motor should engage and the motor arm should come around and depress the switch; you should hear a definite click. If it doesn't depress the switch, loosen the two motor nuts, and realign the motor.

If this does not work contact Bradley Technical Support.
