Also do a search on the forum. It may be hard to find, but both the part number, and supplier are listed some wheres.

warranty is up. had this for about 5 years and have bought a new generator once. dont think i will buy another for $170. i would think there is a motor out there somewhere myself. may have to just go back to the brinkman dome smoker. ugh!

Wow! $170 for a generator???

I agree with NePas and Pens. Get hold of Bryan at Yard and Pool. Here is a link to a new generator on his site. It's $89.

 Try The Yard and Pool if they do not have them you can order it direct from Bradley.
I would recomend talking to the service Tech. You may have an old style motor the new ones might have a different connection for the wires

Last night I took the Panasonic motor I had bought and made some modifications on the plastic knob with a dremel tool making it fit on the rotator arm. I cut the plug wires from the old motor and stripped the ends and soldered them to the prongs on the new. Worked great. I am back in business. Be smoking again for the holidays. Thanks for the responses

Wonder if it is worth making this a "sticky" .......... think this has to be done by admin or moderator?

Nice to see Bradley PR coming in with help on this subject that has appeared on quite a few occasions over the years.
