I noticed your P setting is on 2 (at least that is what it looks like). The lower the P setting the hotter it will run but it should not run 510 in smoke mode. Turn the P setting to 4 or 5. Take out the heat grid/plat and watch and see what it does. See if it is continuously feeding pellets. Might be a bad temp probe (which is what mine did a few weeks ago, had it in smoke and got over 500 and gave me the ErH code and they are sending a replacement). Luckily I have 2 Pit Boss's so while the grill is down I have been using the vertical smoker.
Thanks for the info Mike. I moved it to P2, because I misunderstood the P-setting chart I read in the manual, and thought the lower the P# the less run time (it's actually the less of the wait time between runs cycles).
I do agree that it shouldn't have gotten that high of temp, either way, but I can't exactly prove it (to a point that they will send me hardware) until I use it correctly
I'll have to crayola myself in for another smoke session this week, to "test" it out.
Thanks for the info guys,
