BTDS76P - Heat Element
« on: November 11, 2020, 11:21:45 AM »
Hi All,

Couple years ago I have imported a BTDS76P from USA.
In USA the voltage is 110-120V (and I am using transformator to change the voltage), however in Europe it is 220-230V.

My question is.. do I have import to buy a heat bar 110V or I can buy locally in Europe 230V?

Or maybe do you know anyone in Europe who can supply me 110V heat bar?

I hope above is clear enough, as I am not an English native speaker  ;D

Regards,
Piotr

If you don't get an answer, you may want to contact Bradley distributor Grakka in the UK, or Bradley customer service.

Hello Piotr

 

No a 220V heat element will not work in that smoker. You will need to get a 120V element.

 

120Volt elements are only available in North America

Hello Piotr

The heating element would be $29.99 but shipping would be over $100.00 + customs fees.
We are unable to ship to Poland and our certification on 120V parts is only good in North America.

That's sucks. Really sucks.

Now it seems that I bought original brand new Bradley Smoker and I can be unable to repair it, even with help of official service.

This sounds ridiculous.
I bought my smoker at the time, where there was no distribution point for Europe( or it was but really poor recognizable) and now I am all alone with the problem..

Is there anyone on the forum, who could order a heat bar (120V) for me and ship it to Poland?
I don't believe shipping cost of 40x10x10cm would cost 100 USD to Poland.

If there's anyone who could help me out, please let me know. I'll do my best to pay back.

Many thanks
Piotr

You best bet would be to do a search of U.S and/or Canadian retailers that carry that part and ship internationally. They would probably be the ones that could offer you the best shipping rate. You may want to order two, just in case, and I doubt if ordering the second one would change the shipping rate.

I did a quick search and found a company that states they ship internationally.
