The fan is not supposed to run consistently. The purpose of the fan is to help control the temperature. It runs hard at first to help get the fire started then it slows down to maintain the temperature you've set. If you change to a higher temperature or if the temperature drops below what you've set, the fan will run faster causing the fire to burn hotter. You'll also find that as the temperature increases the amount of smoke will decrease.

My trager grill is smoking a lot in the pellet hopper


That could mean that pellets in the augur have caught fire and it can work its way back to the hopper. Then you really have a problem. Are you sure the fan is running?

You should be able to hear it. The fan helps keep the heat from working its way into the augur. If it's not running, you should also be having trouble controlling the temperature.

Traeger has specific instructions on its website for testing various components including the fan and customer support can assist you with this problem.

Here's a link to the Traeger website: http://www.traegergrills.com/. I'd suggest you get in touch with them ASAP because you definitely don't want to deal with burning pellets in the hopper.

Traeger grill not smoking


This is a common complaint about Traeger grills. Some people have resolved it with smoke pipes which contain pellets that smolder during the cooking process.

Others use different pellets than Traeger pellets but they void their warranty when they do. For me, Traeger pellets seem to put out enough smoke at the low temperatures I use (less than 200 degrees) but if I get above 200, the smoke goes sway.

When I cook pork shoulders, I try to keep the temperature at 180. In ideal conditions the Traeger will fluctuate between 160 and 200, averaging 180. If I can maintain this low-slow cooking temp-speed, I get a good smoke ring and decent smoke flavor.

If I get above 200, I lose much of the flavor but usually have a smoke ring though not as intense as at the lower temps. There are lots of conversations about this on blogs at the Traeger website and at the Pelletheads website.

My traeger will smoke but not light


You've likely done this already, but in case you haven't. My treater was running cool; the fire box was congested -- no air getting to the embers. If you've replaced the ignitor, then you've cleaned the fire box. Wonder if any of the air vents are obstructed?

My traeger smokes but won't heat up...I have it on high...not smoke.


Have you cleaned the ash out of the firepot? I clean mine with a shop vac after every five or six uses because the ash builds up and "insulates" the fire, keeping air from the fan reaching it so it just smolders and never really gets hot.

Whenever you finish using your Traeger it is always best to lift the lid and turn the controller down to the smoke setting and allow the temp to drop for a few minutes. This will also slow down the delivery of fresh pellets into your firepot thus starving the fire of fuel.Once the temp drops below 200 deg F than shut off the controller. If you have any wind blowing remove your Traeger out of the draft of the wind and the fire will go out on its own.

I'm getting an "Err" message on my digital temperature reading. The grill starts up but then shuts down when the "Err" message comes up.


Remove your grill, inner shield and outer dip plate from the Traeger. Start the Traeger in smoke mode. Observe to see if the blower fan is working. Is the auger turning? Are the pellets dry? Condensation can make the pellets swell and cause plug ups.
