Ya that is what mine looks like. And thanks for the help .....where is the wick? I think having the plastic tube crumpled up could have something to do with it?

The wick is in the burner. The black rectangular box, the top should pop off. Wick resides in the heating element and should hang down into the sump in the bottom of the black box.

Mine looks simular but not exact. It could be that with me converting to different batteries I accidently clipped a wrong wire. I did all this clipping in the engine.

Only way to know is see if there is voltage to the smoke unit. And you wick should be tucked down into the low point cavity in the smoke unit.

And? Smoker working again? Side note found one heck of a deal yesterday on used 24" LGB track $4.00 each, was able to acquire 11 pieces, train swap meets rock...lol. As soon as my 10' radius track arrives I can begin prepping the outdoor space!

LOL no worries, I was on a submarine for 6 years, humor I can handle.. :rofl:

Long voyage,eh? Quite a few ex-service personnel here, it seems. I was Army for 33 years, so I also speak 'military humour'.

Let's see what you made on the printer!!

I assume you actually mean in submarines for 6 years, ON a submarine for more than a few minutes may be problematic

My favourite piece of military jargon has always been 'Beds will be made up, as laid down, in standing orders.'

Nothing for the railroad yet... looking at making a 12 pack of flat cars, and a bridge for starters. Glad to hear there are a bunch of prior service peeps in here! Thank for your service! My son was 1st Cav in Afgaistan. Back to original topic I have printed a full size wearable stormtrooper helmet on my printer, so yeah I can print rather large files.

So please ignore the house, getting pressure washed soon. The layout will go from porch to edge of house, out and around the flag pole... etc etc. Going to scrape all the grass out, weed barrier, stone base... then start laying initial oval.
