when I start my YS640 Led is lite up right says it going up to 350 but no heat at all. when I took of the grates it had dumped pellets but no fire at all. shut off did it again and all it does is dump pellets in the hopper. ANY thoughts. thanks
Do you unplug the cooker after use? If the cooker was left plugged in, before you start it, it must be unplugged for a minimum of 30 seconds.

Did you do the pellet catch and watch the igniter? Were you able to use an OHM meter and read the resistance of the igniter?
If your cooker is a year old according to the door plate, you can order a replacement igniter here: http://www.atbbq.com/catalog/product/vi ... t-igniter/
Do you clean the ash from the burn grate before each use? This is a requirement: viewtopic.php?f=36&t=454
What is the OHM reading per the test document?
Again, the number 1 reason a cooker does not ignite is that it was not unplugged for a minimum of 30 seconds before a cooking session. It is a requirement that a cooker be unplugged after the cool down cycle, and left unplugged until the next cooking session.
You may still use the cooker by manually lighting it, per the instructions in the manual.
What is the serial number and build date from your cooker's door plate?
by the way it worked great at xmas for a prime rib. there was no ash build up at all. I have no problem paying for it. just want to get it fixed. ser. 22602 1-13-16 will order new one but like to order the thermocouple too. mine is mounted on the left side wall not sure wish one to order. thanks
