Diagnose SP-700 No Power To CV Thermostat

**NOTICE**
All repairs should be performed by a certified technician. Southern Pride of Texas® is not liable for any damges, or injury if you choose to attempt repairs on your own. When dealing with high voltage, and moving drive systems there is a risk of extreme injury, or even DEATH.

Hello from Southern Pride of Texas,

Today we will explain how to diagnose a Southern Pride SP-700 gas rotisserie smoker with a digital CV thermostat that is not powering up when the smoker should be operating. 

The first thing you want to do is check your breaker or GFCI plug to ensure they have not tripped.

If your breaker, and outlet are not tripped then please proceed with this guide.

Take your multimeter, and verify that we are receiving 120v  AC directly from the GFCI outlet. (You may also verify 120v to the unit by using the rotisserie advance button)

If you are receiving 120v then we need to remove the control panel for further testing.  

To remove the control panel first unplug your smoker from the wall then proceed to remove the bolts shown in the picture to the right to drop the control panel.

164500

Once the control panel has been dropped ensure nothing is making contact with the case of the smoker, and then plug the power to the machine back in.

First, we want to check the main power switch for 120v from terminal 3 to case ground.  Terminal 3 sends power directly to the thermostat. If you find 120v AC present at terminal 3 the thermostat is faulty, and needs replacement.  CLICK TO PURCHASE

If you do not have 120v on terminal 3 then perform the same test on terminal 4.

If you do not find 120v at terminal 4 then move to the clear ice cube relay that does not have a red wire.

At this relay you want to test for 120v across the coil with the doors closed, and the smoker in operation (A & B terminals on older relays, and terminals 13 & 14 on newer relays).

If you find 120v AC across the coil, but no power to terminal 3 then the main power switch needs replacement. CLICK TO PURCHASE

If 120v is not present across the coil then your relay has failed. CLICK TO PURCHASE

If 120v is comfirmed across the coil your door switch is either faulty, the gap between the switch and door is to far, or possibly has a bad connection.  

First, attempt to manually activate the magnet door switch by touching a metal object to it such as a knife, or spoon.  If no change then drop the door switch, and verify the molex connector is firmly secured, and there is no damaged to the wiring harness. If you find the wiring harness to be in good shape your door switch has more than likely failed.  CLICK TO PURCHASE.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us directly for phone based support at 409-886-8626.

Convection Motor 522004 Update

We are happy to announce an update about the supply shortage of the Southern Pride gas smoker convection motor part # 522004.

As many of you may know we have been dealing with supply chain issues of these motors for the majority of this year due to the factory in Mexico being shut down by the Mexican government

522004 Convection Motor

Leeson has announced the Mexican government is allowing them to reopen their factory at minimum capacity.  This will hopefully allow us a steady supply of these motors to our customers without anymore delays.

We have our first order of these motors due to arrive Friday of this week.  All existing customer purchase orders will fulfilled, and we will have a substantial amount of motors on stand by for any future orders.

If you have been considering replacing your convection motor on your MLR-150, SPK-280, SPX-300, SPK-500, SP-700, SPK-700, MLR-850, SPK-1000, SPK-1400 we recommend parts being order at the earliest convenience to prevent missing out of supply issues arise again in the near future.

Orders can be placed by phone, or directly from our website by clicking here.

What are we doing to prevent issues in the future?

Southern Pride has announced to all authorized distributors that we are working with a potential new supplier of convection fan motors.

The minimize the possitiblity of the same issues we are currently facing the new supplier will have a different country of origin than our current supplier.

We thank all of our customers as they push forward with us through the challenges COVID-19 has presented to us.
