    Anova making a clicking noise?

    Maybe it's just our Anova -- but does anyone else's sous vide stick make a "clicking sound" when it's active?

    I've identified the issue as that the spinner propeller at the bottom of the stick is off-center and hitting against the bottom plastic. So we undo the plastic bottom, then push the propeller to the opposite side of where it's hanging to get it closer to center than it was before. Then the sous vide session will be as quiet as circulating water will be.

    It'll run just fine for a few more sessions until eventually the propeller has creeped back far enough over to start hitting the plastic again.

    Is this happening to y'all too? It's not worth replacing as "broken", but didn't know if this was a widespread thing or not.

      Mine does it too. I've done the same as you. It's done it for a long time. More of an annoyance than a hindrance. Eventually I'll get a new one but, in the meantime, I deal with it!

          Mine has done it. I adjust it and it goes quiet. For a while at least. It doesn’t affect performance.

            Mine did once when the bottom piece (protecting the prop) got jarred (is that a word PJ?), I reseated it and went away.

            Mine will sometimes do it depending on how it rests on the bottom of the container. Sometimes just twisting the metal cover off and rotating it to a different position helps.

                  Mine does it too. I take it apart and reseat everything and it stops. Once I get it fixed it doesn't do it again during that cook, but it does it so often that I don't use it for long cooks anymore. I also bought a Joule that I use for longer cooks. I did not contact Anova because I have had the thing for a few years now, but I may reach out to them just to see what they say.

                    Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                    We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                    GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

                    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
