Take the brush rolls out and you should see a copper disc. It is the dirt sensor. Clean it with Windex or some other cleaner. This works sometimes.

I can get my traeger to start smoking but it’s not holding and shuts off. It is 30 degrees and breezy


Do you get an error messsage that looks like LEr? If a Traeger can't reach 125 for ten consecutive minutes, it will automatically shut down. Try starting at a highter temperature than "Smoke" if it's cold outside.

My Traeger grill keeps going off on smoke


Do you get an error messsage that looks like LEr? If a Traeger can't reach 125 for ten consecutive minutes, it will automatically shut down. Try starting at a higher temperature than "Smoke" if it's cold outside. Traeger also makes "blankets" to help your smoker maintain temp in cold climates, but they're quite an investment.

After 10 minutes on smoke, closed the lid and set temperature to 300. The readout says LEr and the grill is cool. Suggestions besides using a gas grill?

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.

I couldn't get the temperature to regulate. The digital readout showed it getting hotter and hotter, then the GFCI would blow. I finally got it to work but I don't know how I did it. The next day I tried...


I answer quite a few questions about Traeger Pellet Grill/Smokers, but this is a new one. My best advice is to contact Traeger's Technical Support Dept @ (800) 872-3437 and let them sort it out.

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 hot rod igniter (or the purple connector). Unplug it and it should eliminate tripping and order new part or get warranty part.
