Hi all, new owner, just bought a 1100 series from Lowe’s yesterday, today was doing a First Start burn off, every thing worked great. I turned the unit off and the cool down light was on, about a half hour later, I noticed smoke coming from the hopper box. I ran out and flames were burning in the hopper box, it had burned off the paint in and out of the box. I had to pour water on it to stop the flame, smothering it didn’t work. Now I have wet dissolved pellets in the hopper and ruined paint, the paint burned in and out of the hopper and on the outside of the barrel above the hopper! I wouldn’t think the paint on a BBQ should burn. What a mess. Not a good start.
