Question about Traeger Industries BBQ070 All-in-One Grill / Smoker

Open Question

My grill [ Traeger 0070] has a thermometer setting from smoke to to 225 deg graduating settings of 25 deg to 400 deg. When starting the grill on the smoke setting the temperature goes up to 285 deg and never drops down to 160 - 180 deg as it was set up when I first began using the grill. I have changed out the selective temperature control and still have this problem. Could the problem be with the temperature probe inside the grill?

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.

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.

Our traeger smokes but the fan does not run consistantly?


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 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.

Not smoking


Traeger grills just will NOT smoke at temps much above 200 degrees. I have to stand by my grill continually in the summer to keep opening and closing the lid to let the heat out. That also lets the smoke out. I also have turned the grill off and on to try to maintain the temperature at 180 degrees where it smokes best and cooks low and slow. It's less of a problem in the winter months. Then I find myself setting the temperature higher turning it from low to medium and back to maintain the temperature I want.

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.

Why is smoke coming out of the pellet box. Temp is set on smoke and it is rising up to 380 degrees


Not sure which Model Traeger Grill/Smoker you have, but they all work pretty much the same way.

The following is a link to the model BBQ055. It should help you solve the problem, which simply may be an incorrect adjustment. If that doesn't help call Technical Service @ 1-800-872-3437.
