What are the set points on your pid? I have a pid in my Masterbuilt and put the temp probe within a few inches of the element. I have it set for a swing of 3 degrees so yes at the beginning it will cycle on and off rapidly. But as the chamber heats up the cycles slow down, and the temp settles. My MB has no air vents and only one small fluid drip, and one upper access holes. I checked temps using four wired thermometers spaced top to bottom and after warm up it was pretty stable. Hope this helps a little.

holysmoke if you were closer I might think about it. I’m sure shipping would be too much and I would be better off buying new.
I just got hosed on a used one I found on ebay. Used buy it now and then find out he doesn’t have it. Now I have to wait and see how long it takes to get my money back. It was only a few months old and used 4 times for $1300.
I just found a lead on another used one only a few months old. Waiting to hear back from the guy on pricing.
