Okay even though I've fixed my ac/dc adapter issue I'm still not convinced I've fixed my issues.

Wang told me this morning at about 6:00 a.m. PST. that the reason the pit dropped to 209F is the PID is learning my pit so I need to leave everything alone. However as I stated earlier I had already put placed it in manual to get the fan going. It was only placed on manual for less than a minute and when it was placed back onto auto the fan continued to run until it got back to the set temp of 250F.

The same exact thing happened again about 8:00 a.m., but this time I followed Wang's advice and did nothing for 2 hours. At that point I was concerned my butt wouldn't be ready on time for dinner if I waited any longer. So once again I put the controller on manual for less than 1 minute, placed it back into auto and the fan kept running until it reached 250F. Just how long should this thing take to "learn my pit." Its now 10:30 a.m. and its been running since 5:00 a.m..

What am I doing wrong or not understanding now?
