    Help find Masterbuilt 560 lid/door switch kit

    Hello to everyone. New member here who needs a little help. I recently bought a clearance model Masterbuilt Gravity series 560 smoker. I just tried the break-in season burn today. I kept seeing "open" message of lcd screen. Everything seemed to working otherwise. I found the switch broken off where you open and shut main door. I found the part number 9904190041. Nobody has these in stock. Does anyone know where I can find one? Can I just pull switch and tape wires together? Any other ideas? Thanks in advance

    Welcome, teachtom!

    Yes, you can short circuit the wires, it's super easy if you're handy. I had to do this early in my review process of the 560 as my switch failed rather quickly. A well known shortcoming of a novel cooker. If you prefer to try to get some switches let me know and we can look into it for you.


      Thank you for your quick reply. I am hoping to find a replacement switch if possible. It looks like a simple generic on/off switch might work. Everywhere I searched for the part was out of stock. I would appreciate any help. Thanks


        I'll look into it for you. I can't promise anything, they may not have any in stock or they may have finally switched over to some hardier ones. I will update you if/when I know.


          teachtom Here's a pic of how I bypassed the switches that failed. Just remove both wires from the faulty switch and shove one clip into the boot of the other, and it'll hold it. Doesn't matter which. Easy peasey.

          (Just be aware that the fan won't shut off when you open whichever door that switch is at, so you could get a face full of fire if you're not careful)

          Thanks a lot for checking into finding one. I'll bet there is a plain jane switch that would work. Also thanks for the heads up about the fan. Wouldn't want to singe my whiskers.ha


            Welcome to The Pit.


              Thank you for the welcomes. Hope to find a lid switch.


                I have been trying to find the new parts as well. I understand they are delivering new grills with upgraded parts now but they have yet to build an inventory of new parts for sale to existing owners.

                MB has not been able to tell me when the parts are back or in stock or even bow to identify the upgraded parts on the website yet.


                  We got an 'out of office' reply upon contacting MB. Supply chains have been disrupted for a year now, so I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you, but we will keep you updated if we hear back.


                    A big Thank you for everyone looking for me.I checked other part suppliers and nobody has them in stock. I wonder if this is a 12V switch? Thinking something like a light switch on a car when you open/shut the door.


                      Heard back from MB. They will send one out when they come back in stock. Thanks everyone , just waiting now..
