Why does my Traeger Smoker not hold temperature.


The Traeger has no thermostat, it works by approximating how often the auger needs to push pellets into the fire box. If the temperature is within 20 degrees, Traeger considers that within range. If you live somewhere with extreme weather, this could affect your Traeger's performance. If it's cold outside, set the Traeger to a higher temp (or get one of their insulating blankets). If it's hot, set the Traeger lower. I hope this helps.

Traeger has uneven heat on grill, some areas burn others under cook


The Traeger has hot spots like any other grill, especially in the front and back where the grease pan doesn't cover and over the heat box. You have to move food around or put your thicker pieces over the hot spots.

If it's getting really hot, you probably have grease in the bottom that's catching on fire. Be sure to clean it out regularly.

Traeger grill get to hot on smoke


If you're cooking when it's hot outside, it's hard to maintain low temperatures. In the heat of summer, I have to tend my grill continually opening and closing the lid to keep the temperature down to my cooking temp of 180. That, of course, lets the smoke escape. If it gets too hot when the temperatures are moderate, i.e. 60s and 70s, the augur may be dumping too many pellets into the fire pot and need realigning. I suggest you contact Traeger customer service at http://www.traegergrills.com and see what they suggest.

Does not heat to right temp.


You didn't give any specifics which makes it difficult to respond because there are many reasons why a Traeger grill might not heat to the right temperature.

One of the most common is problems is the outside temperature. If it's hot, the Traeger may overheat unless it is tended constantly. When it's cold, the Traeger may not get as hot as it should based on a normal setting and you may have to set it higher to reach the temperature you want.

Other reasons could be mechanical in that the hot rod may not be keeping the firebox as hot as it should or the fan may not be running as hard as it should to get the temperature to the right setting.

If your firebox has not been cleaned, ash will effectively insulate the fire, preventing heat from building up in the cooker.

Some people clean their Traeger thoroughly after every use. Some never clean theirs until something goes wrong. I clean mine after every 4-6 uses, depending on how long my cooking sessions have been.

If I've been cooking pork shoulder low and slow for many hours, I'll clean it more often than if I had grilled steaks multiple times for 15-20 minutes at a time.

Likely, if you're cooking in "normal" outside temperature of 60-80 degrees, your Traeger should be holding fairly close to the temperature you've set. If it's not then you may have a fan or hot rod problem and you ought to contact Traeger to set what they suggest.

The Hi and Lo gas valve coils do they work in tandem ? Does the Lo stays on all the time ? Ruy ...


Their is 2 coil hosing but one of them has 3 wires and 2 coils inside it. The ignitor does 2 jobs, it lights the fire and acts as a thermocouple through the holding coil. If the flame does not ignite after the sensor detects the heat from it and shuts down then once the ignitor cools down the gas valve is shut down even if power is going to the gas valve. When the temp drops below 105f in the drum the control closes contacts inside allowing power to be supplied to the gas assembly. The ignitor and flame sensor along with the booster holding and secondary coils are all energized at once but the solenoids won't open the valve because the ignitor is hogging the power. The power supplied to it runs through the flame sensor. When the temp inside the sensor reaches a point the bi-metal inside tripped the power to the ignitor and the power gets diverted over to the secondary coil. Thr flame stays on till the temp inside the drum reaches 160f at which time the control thermostat opens circuit to the gas assembly and power is shut down. The drum continues to tumble and when the temp drops once agin below 105 the process is repeated and another blast of heat is shot into the dryer. So what goes wrong? Faulty flame sensor sticking/open, cracked ignitor, old coils that work intermittently or not at all when hot but work again when cooled.themobilian_2866.jpgthemobilian_2865.jpg themobilian_2868.jpgMore here.

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.
