I'm getting code ErL
I cleaned it out someone told me it might be a Jam augur so I took the augur out and put it back in but as soon as I turn it on I get the code ErLThis means your unit is not getting up to temp. Could be a number of things, a bad thermometer probe inside, a faulty ignitor or bad control panel.
First take everything out of the grill or smoker. Look inside the fire pot. If there are pellets there remove them. Then turn it on and watch the pellets fall into the fire pot. The ignitor should start to glow red after a minute or two. If it doesn't then the ignitor is bad. If it does turn red and you start to see smoke then it might be the probe. Your best bet is to call customer service and leave a call back number and tell them what it is doing.
This thread at Smoking Meats might give some insight as well.
