How to Replace the Smart Combustion Motherboard Housing

IMPORTANT: Before proceeding

To continue you'll need to remove your hopper service panel. To remove this panel for the first time, you'll want to use an impact driver to remove the screws behind the P.A.L rail on your hopper service panel. 

  1. If this is your first time removing the hopper service panel and you don't have an impact driver of your own. Contact our customer support team and we'll send you a complimentary manual impact driver.
    • If you already have a manual impact driver, proceed to removing the hopper service panel.
    • If you have already removed the service panel screws, you can disregard the impact driver and use a regular Phillips screwdriver.
  2. Once you've removed the screws using the impact driver, continue with the next steps outlined here in this article.
     

  1. Remove the hopper side service panel using a manual impact driver to remove 6 screws (2 located on top of the access panel, 2 below the hopper side rail, and 2 on the bottom of the access panel).
    • Pro Tip: Some customers find this easier if they remove the P.A.L Rail first.
  2. Remove the smart combustion cover by unscrewing the 4 screws securing it in place.
  3. Unplug the AUGER, FAN, SMART COMB/GREASE, PELLET, and AC IGN connections.
