Hi everyone,

Just bough a pit boss pro series cooper head pellet smoker, did the burn off yesterday no issue, have come to firer it up today to starting cooking and it keeps shutting off and flashing up a 4P1 error code, the manual doesn't list this code, anyone ran in to this before ? I have to unplug the unit to clear the code and start again ?

Any idea's on how to fix this would be great

Thanks

That error code is new to me as well. Your best bet is to call Pit Boss Customer Service as they will help you and they may have to replace the controller.

So I did get hold of Pitt boss customer service. The 4P1 is the current Software version. Apparently it comes on every time you start up the smoker. They are not sure why it is flashing up on my unit then shutting off. is After shutting off 3 time it did then run for the rest of the cook just fine. They stated I might need a new control board. Will run it again later in the week if the issue continues I’ll have to get them out

Stay away from the above website, that stuff is questionable. If you buy replacement parts buy from an authorized dealer or from Amazon. When buying from Amazon make sure to read reviews and such. Most of the PB replacement parts have one day shipping but most DEFINITELY STAY AWAY from the website listed above.
