SOURCE: Traeger BBQ trips circuit breaker

Mine is doing the same thing, but it does it within seconds of turning it on. I'd assume you as well have the digital thermostat. I've narrowed it down to what I believe is the flame ignitor (or the purple connector). Unplug it and it should eliminate tripping and order new part or get warranty part.

SOURCE: I have an electric Traeger grill. I plug it in

Make sure your grill is unplugged. Them take the controler out and there is a fuse on the back side of the control. There is also a new fuse there to replace the old one. If the fuse is blown, you could have a bad hot rod or other component that is bad. Usually the hot rod is the problem and they should be under warrenty so call Treager and get a new one sent. If the fuse blows after it is replace, you can un hook the purple wire and replace the fuse and see if it will work them. If it does, it is the hotrod.

You need to take other devices off that circuit. Also outdoor circuits usually are on a GFI circuit.which are very sensitive to flucuations.

Nothing works, no fan, no auger


Sounds like no power. Is it plugged into a GFI circuit that might have tripped. On its website in the FAQs Traeger mentions that if pellets get wet, this can cause a GFI circuit to trip and they suggest a specific remedy. Check out their website at http://www.traegergrills.com/ and if necessary contact their service techs who can help you troubleshoot.

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.

My traeger smoker will not ignite


From Traeger:
Why won't my Grill Ignite?
  1. If your grill is plugged into an electrical outlet with a GFI (ground fault interrupter) plug, chances are the hot rod has absorbed or been exposed to too much moisture and is leaking to ground causing the plug to trip.
  2. Open your cooking chamber lid, remove cooking grill, angled drip pan and U-shaped firepot cover. Is there ash build up in the firepot and/or around the firepot? If so, this needs to be cleaned out. The ash is choking out the fire.
  3. Check the fuse on the back of the control board. To do this, first UNPLUG the grill from the electrical outlet. Then, unscrew the control board and look at the fuse-is it blown or not?
  4. If the fuse is good, check for power by switching the colored plugs first. Unplug the purple plug and the orange plug. Plug the purple plug into the orange plug. Now plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet and turn the grill on. Does the induction fan operate? If so, you will need a new hot rod and fuse. If not, you will need a new control board. Unplug the purple from the orange and reconnect the plugs together to their correct color plug.
  5. Always start your grill on the SMOKE setting.

Grill will not turn on


I assume you are referring to the auger motor. If so, have you checked the electric receptacle the g=auger motor is plugged into? Plug another electric appliance, like a lamp into the receptacle to see if the lamp works. If not, look for a tripped circuit breaker in your home's breaker panel. If one is tripped, make sure nothing is plugged into the offending receptacle and reset the breaker. Plug the auger motor back in to see if the breaker trips again. If does, there's an electrical issue with the auger motor or the cord.

If none of the above is the problem, i have included a link to Traeger Industries website. There you can find and download the Owners Manual for your Grill-Smoker, which also has a Trouble Shooting Section.

The auger on my 9 yr old grill has stopped and my family is not happy! I do not have a Mr Fix-it husband so am on my own. Any suggestions?


Make sure that there electric power to the auger motor. If it's plugged into an exterior wall outlet, unplug it and plug in another electric device (like a lamp) to make sure that outlet still works. If it doesn't, go to your home's Circuit Breaker Panel and check for a tripped breaker. If you find one that's tripped, reset it and try plugging in the auger motor and turn it on. If it starts working then suddenly stops, it probably tripped the circuit breaker again. That would indicate one of three things: The cord from the auger motor may be bad; the auger motor itself may be shorting out; the circuit breaker may be failing. If it's the receptacle or the circuit breaker, I'd advise you contacting an electrician to have them check and replace it. for the Auger Motor, go to Traeger's website home page and look for Trouble Shooting or Customer Support. Better safe, than sorry.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

When I turn grill on it throws the breaker


Try a different outlet, maybe the breaker is bad with the one you are using. The hot rod could be bad as this seems to be a problem with Treager grills. They should be under warrenty so call and have one sent to you. To check the hot rod, unplug your grill and the reach up from the bottom and unplug the purple wire. Plug the grill back in and see if it will start. If it does, it is the hot rod.
