Hi, if you haven't already done so, I would recommend you remove the grate and heat plate to clean out the ash from the fire box. Accumulated ash will restrict airflow into the fire box preventing good combustion. While using genuine treager pellets and standard shut-down/cool-down cycle, I have to clean it out periodically.

Is there a recall costco treager grills

As a Costco member you should receive notification of any recalls on products you've purchased under your membership. As you would know, recalls are very specific - even to the date of mfg. The SKU on each item at Costco carries this data so product issues can quickly be conveyed to their members.

If you haven't received any advise, then your specific Treager is very likely not on any recall list.

Treager grill blow fuse over and over

As you might imagine. If your Treager is blowing fuses, it has an electrical short somewhere. The tricky part is usually finding it. However, on the unit, it will likely be the hot rod. Replace it before the short causes other damage.

Treager BBQ will not get hot at all.

Ensure your fire box is cleaned out and ventilation holes at the base are not obstructed. Ensure the induction fan is operating and moving air into the fire box.

According to Treager FAQ:

"I've been noticing that my grill temperature keeps dropping lower. What is the problem?
You need to "true" your auger. To do this:

Run the unit out of pellets.
Remove the allen screw and nut out of the auger and motor shaft.
Try spinning the auger shaft over the motor shaft. The auger shaft should spin freely over the motor shaft without binding.
If the auger binds, loosen the 7/16th inch bolts on the motor bracket and move bracket until you can rotate the auger shaft over the motor shaft. Then re-tighten 7/16th inch bolts. Make sure auger shaft still rotates over motor shaft, or repeat step 4 again until it does.
Reattach auger and motor shafts using the screw and nut which you removed in step 2."

Treager bbq keeps tripping breakers

I would strongly recommend you pull the control panel and inspect the fuse. Before tripping a breaker, your GFS outlet should trip, and/or blow the fuse.

If the unit is tripping circuits, then there is likely a short. Given the material draw from the hot rod, I would start with that. Putting a multi-meter on it to test voltage, should give you a basis to confirm with Treager if it's within spec. Sometimes it's simpler to replace the rod, but this can add up quickly if not the root issue.

Treager smoke auger won't turn

If the auger won't turn because it's jammed, here's details direct from Treager

Elswise, I would check your electrical on the back of your control panel. There should be three sets of two-wire leads: (1) Purple/White=Hot Rod; (2) Orange/White=Induction Fan; and (3) Red/White=Auger. Obviously, check the Red/White leads for voltage and continuity.

Traegger Heating Problem

Make sure the hot rod is plugged into the correct connector. The hot rod plug has a purple dot or mark on it and it plugs into the lead with the purple wire. If this is correct, maybe the hot rod is burned out. If so call Treager and have them send you a new one as it should be under warrenty.

My grill stopped smoking after being on for some time and had gotten cold. I restarted it and it start smoking vigorously very quickly. When I turned it to medium there was a internal explosion of sorts as...

I had the same thing happen with my Treager.

However when mine back drafted ( the explosion ) the blew the door open so hard it bent it, I had just turned away or I would have taken that blast in the face, from a distance of 3 feet - could have been one of those OUCH moments

When i talked to Mike Treager he said NEVER start your grill with the door closed And that if you are smoking with low heat before you turn the grill off run it on high for 5 minutes to burn up anything left in the ash pot
I do and have never had a problem since and I rarely need to clean it out as the high fire burns 99% of everything in the ash pot
