Big Temp Swings

Hi everyone,
Happy July 4th !
I put in a small butt (7 pounder) last night about 8:00pm. My classic-style Smokette runs hot so I put the temp at approx 215 degrees. The smoker is running hot..hotter than normal..and I have seen the temp peak this morning at 257. It has been at 230-340 for most of this smoke. Do you think something is wrong with the smoker??
The butt has been for 14 hours with the current temp of meat at 158. It is a nice day here..temp in low 80s with low humidity.
Thanks and hope everyone enjoys the day.
Jim
