    Already did yesterday and they have not responded yet - probably a holiday issue. I should have included that information in my post. Thank you for responding so quickly.

I have an older traeger and it doesnt seem to heat up on high mode. it has 2 fans and both work but one seems to knock now and again. when i cook chicken on high it will take 2 hours to cook.


The Traeger website at http://www.traegergrills.com/ has an FAQ about grills not reaching the appropriate temperature and how to adjust the augur to fix the problem. Here's what they say:
Q. I've been noticing that my grill temperature keeps dropping lower. What is the problem?

A. You need to "true" your auger. To do this:

  1. Run the unit out of pellets.
  2. Remove the allen screw and nut out of the auger and motor shaft.
  3. Try spinning the auger shaft over the motor shaft. The auger shaft should spin freely over the motor shaft without binding.
  4. If the auger binds, loosen the 7/16th inch bolts on the motor bracket and move bracket until you can rotate the auger shaft over the motor shaft. Then re-tighten 7/16th inch bolts. Make sure auger shaft still rotates over motor shaft, or repeat step 4 again until it does.
  5. Reattach auger and motor shafts using the screw and nut which you removed in step 2.
Hope this helps

Traeger bbq problems


This is a common problem if you're trying to cook when its cold outside. Traeger sells insulating blankets for grills that are being used at 35 degrees or less. However, it could be an augur alignment problem that's keeping the augur from dunping enough pellets in the firebox. Here's Traeger's FAQ for that problem.

Q. I've been noticing that my grill temperature keeps dropping lower. What is the problem?

A. You need to "true" your auger. To do this:

  1. Run the unit out of pellets.

You probably should contact Traeger customer service at http://www.traegergrillscom to confirm that this is your problem.

Treager BBQ will not get hot at all.


Ensure your fire box is cleaned out and ventilation holes at the base are not obstructed. Ensure the induction fan is operating and moving air into the fire box.

According to Treager FAQ:

How do I get my Traeger to grill again without turning all my food black?


Adjust the air-fuel mixture so the flame is blue with maybe a tinge of yellow at the tips...if I'm right, the flames are solid yellow at the moment. adjust the mixture by opening or sliding or twisting the adjuster that's located where the feed tube attaches to the dial. Usually behind the bezel (panel).

My Traeger (BBQ070) will feed the pellets, but there is no ignition to burn the pellets.


Be sure check the fuse behind the control board when pellets auger in but do not ignite.

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.

Pellets keep feeding. cant control temp.


Are you trying to grill or smoke? In ether case, once the pellets ignite and the temperature you want has been reached, the switch should be turned to off. That should stop the auger pellet feed.

Also, are you using Traeger Pellets. They are the only one designed for this grill/smoker. If you're using heating pellets for a pellet stove, that also would cause that problem

If you've lost your Owners Manual, here's a link to it in a downloadable and printable pdf format.

Hope this helps. Please let me know.
