Smoker shutting off
« on: March 26, 2021, 03:30:08 am »

I fired up my Bradley yesterday morning at 7am at the temp was 48°.  I went back out at 8am and the temp had only reached 54° .  Once at I got temp around 110° it kept turning off.  I tried different extension cords and plugging directly into different outlets and it still kicked off after just a couple of minutes.  I don't understand what the issue is.

Can you provide us with the model you have.

If the heating element is actually working, and then the smoker is shutting down; it may be a faulty temperature sensor. It may need to be replaced, but in the meantime it is possible that it is stuck open, sometimes holding an ice cube on the sensor for a few minutes may reset it. Usually you can locate the sensor by looking inside the smoker, and you will see a small disk the size of a quarter.
