Hi from Idaho
« on: July 26, 2022, 10:00:53 AM »
New to the forum and excited to be here. Ordered the # 2 and just got it yesterday . Had a problem with the smoker tripping GFI talked with Steve and got fantastic customer service thank you !  I have been smoking meat for over 40 years from charcoal to wood to cheap electric. I'm looking forward to smoking sum trout and ribs !

Welcome to the forum. You'll be pleased how much nicer it is to use the smokin-it over cheap electrics.

Regarding the tripping GFCI.  One issue could be if it is a ganged gfci rather than a stand alone.  Don't know why but stand alone 20 amp (separate circuit) rather than servicing several outlets seems to be more reliable. Just a thought.

Hi Al -- good to meet you!  I just got a 2D-WiFi and I'm having GFCI issues as well.  Tripped a couple of different GFCI circuits.  Can you please describe the process you used with your tester to diagnose that you had a bleed to ground?  I'm not very knowledgable when it comes to electric work so simpler is better.  :)
