Good to see you are up and running again.

Your other element may be good, so at least you have a backup element. :)

I have firmware version b002, and I still receive the message that I have the most current firmware. I may send Bradley an email to see if there is any difference between the two versions.

I don't know what could have caused your misfeed. If it were due to a bisquette being damaged from moisture, it would not feed under the turntable cover, or it would start to feed then get jammed under the cover. It sounds like it didn't drop down properly when the turn table rotated, or for some reason the turntable did not align properly when it rotated. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Maybe for the next few smokes, occasionally check to make sure the bisquettes are feeding alright.

On two different occasions I have had problems with bisquettes feeding. The first time I knew what caused the problem. I was seasoning the cabinet, and used old mesquite bisquettes. The older bisquettes were not as compressed as today's bisquettes are, so while it was feeding a bisquette got stuck under the turntable cover. The other time I came out to check on the smoker and had an Err3 error. I pushed the feed button and the next bisquette fed without any problem. I don't know what cause the error.

There are a few things.

1- When you replaced your element you may have pulled the wires out too far, which could have caused the wire to disconnect from the plug. You will need to take the back cover off the cabinet to check the wiring at the plug.

2- You may have received a bad replacement. Unhook the wiring from the element. Using a multimeter take an OHM reading of the element. It should read between 27 - 32 ohms. If it is not in that range, you have a bad element. Also test the element you removed. If that reading is within range, that will indicate the problem is not the element.

3- You didn't mention which fuse you checked, but there is an in-line fuse located in the back of the cabinet.  That fuse could have burnt out. The back panel of the cabinet needs to be removed to get to it. You can't visually tell if it is still good. If you have a multimeter you can do a continuity test, or use a piece of wire of the same gauge or larger to temporarily by pass the fuse.

4- Your temperature sensor could be bad, and stuck in the off position. Sometimes it can be reset by holding an ice cube on the sensor for a short period of time. If you look inside your cabinet, your will see a small disk on the backwall that is about the size of a quarter

I did have one puck get stuck during eggplant smoking. I’m sure it had nothing to do with the eggplant which came out great but took a little longer to finish cooking so I could easily (relative) peel the skin. It was the third puck in the stack which is strange because they were all lined up straight in loader tube and the first two loaded fine. The leading edge did not clear, but once I figured out what was going on freed it up and it dropped down no problems and the next 5 dropped and burned perfectly.  Since I’m new to Bradley, is this a common problem?. Will I need to watch for this problem in future? These were brand new pucks so I don’t think they were swollen from humidity, and we are very dry here in Denver. Although the puck were shipped from Midwest where there is high humidity. Never the less I bought several boxes of bisquettes and am storing them in waterproof plastic storage boxes, they should all be quite dry after sitting in their boxes and packaging in my house for a week.
Any thoughts on why one would load at an angle to cause the jam?

Finally figured out the current firmware (b021) for my new P10, and I’m up date. FYI I was having a user error issue determining the firmware, following the directions from Bradley website, holding control button down while turning on the power to the smoker, I saw four digits and thought the first character was a 6 (6021) but it was actually meant to be a b (lowercase B), b021,  So I guess I’m at firmware revision 21 which is current according to BS website.

Thanks for the response…the problem is that though the auber PID seems to be behaving normal, the lights flickers on and off as temp is reached…the heating element just stays on full power.  The on light on the smoke box stays on..does not flicker on and off.

So set to 200…auber output is steady …. When temp is reached though the element still is red hot and temp climbing.  It’s not cycling the power, power seems to be just steady on…
