    open lid triggering constantly

    All,
    I've an odd problem. The open lid keeps getting triggered, like constantly.

    there is no fluctuation in the temperature, as it hasn't even gotten up to temp yet. It may never get there with the lid triggering and stopping the fan.

    I've tried different % settings, from 100% to 0%. Is there a way to disable this "feature" I can't sit here at the computer the entire smoke and "close" the lid.

    thanks
    david

    I think I fixed it. I went and wiggled the switch around and around. Must have had something in it that was pushing the button and triggering the lid.

    It's been working sense.

    Now to continue with the smoke of my 40 day dry aged brisket.

    Yup that's what I was going to say, sounds like a false button trigger. You can effectively disable the Lid Detect by setting it to 100% so at that point the only lid events could come from the button or clicking in the webui. Glad you figured it out!
