It seems my PB150 fan is blowing the smoke out the side vent like it has reversed direction on its own. The only thing I have done is replaced the igniter, and its just a unplug and replug the new one in. It is the black encased fan not the white one that is not encased. Now theat side of smoker gets all the smoke and starts heating up with little or no smoke in grill area. Can any one help with this? Thanks

Is sounds like the induction (draft) fan is installed backwards. That black fan should be blowing air towards the fire, not out the side vents. If you can see the label on the fan, it's backwards. Just remove, and remount so the label of the fan is facing the fire.

Yes that what it was. Pit Boss customer service is great. I called we went over what I did to change the igniter and it came to me I took that fan off. I had installed it backwards. All fixed now. Thanks
