I am getting an Over Temp error on my old SM150. Cookshack thinks it’s a faulty thermistor. I have the part number but I can’t find one anywhere on the internet, and cookshack no longer carries them. Does anyone have an idea on how to fix my issue. Would another thermistor work if I hooked it to the control board? Any advise would be appreciated.

Did you talk with Bill or Tony?
I have a 12 year old SM150, my thermostat went out. I ordered one from Cookshack it arrived yesterday. They sent me item PV721 cost about $215. Problem was I set smoker to 250 but the display never showed above 120 but I heard a sizzle so I put a probe down the top to check temp was actually 297 my poor ribs : (
I hope to install it this weekend and that it will fix this problem.
JETT, Definitely give us a call and we can assist in trouble shooting the issue. As long as it was not a thermistor probe we would have the one you need. The PV721 is three wire probe so you may have a bad ground. Just give us a call and we can assist.
Yes it is the thermister. I have the part number just can’t find one online.
If it is the old style thermistor then we do not have that one available. Just give us a call and we can assist in getting an RMA to return the probe for credit.
