Have replaced the digital reader twice. I've had my smoker for roughly 3 years. I keep it outside covered when not in use. When new, on the third use, the digital read out stopped working. In other words, the numbers where have lit. Couldn't tell if it was a 2 or 5 or 7. This was the case across the board, heat and timer. Called customer service to replace, $19.00 + shipping costs. Replaced the unit and the new one worked once and the same issue once again. This time I took the timer apart down to it's circuit board. I discovered that the digital read out had stress on the wiring. The circuit board which controls the functions was warped from the soldering and coating. As smoker heats up, the more it warps since the unit sits on top right by the exhaust. If you twisted the board, the numbers would function. Unfortunately, you can't twist it to stay functional. If this unit had a better reader, I would give it a 4. My brother has a Masterbuilt Smoker with the reader in the front and has no issues with his.
