20 Most Recent Traeger Industries BBQ075 All-in-One Grill / Smoker Questions & Answers


Make sure you are leaving it open long enough when you first turn it on. Everything in the smoke chamber needs to burn up before you begin. There also may be grease buildup in the bottom of your smoker that is catching on fire. If neither of these two possibilities work, contact Traeger support https://www.traegergrills.com/support

It's supposed to cycle on and off depending on your settings. Are you sure something's wrong? Does it keep its set temperature within 15 degrees either way? If so, it's working fine.

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.

Ron, I am not real familiar with this model. If the temperature controls are not doing the trick, see if it has vent doors that can be slid open to help control heat. If it does not have vent doors, consider adding a couple to the top lid of grill. Link below how they work and install, you can also make your own quite simply.

I think you have already discovered that the outlet is not at fault. So, now you have to troubleshoot the electrical parts of the grill and their wiring. Most of this you can do with a visual inspection, looking for frayed wires, incomplete connections or bare wire(s) touching the metal framing of the grill and even a circuit that is wire incorrectly.

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual (which has a wiring diagram) have included a link to it that you can download and print for future reference. Hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know.

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.

As you might imagine. If your Treager is blowing fuses, it has an electrical short somewhere. The tricky part is usually finding it. However, on the unit, it will likely be the hot rod. Replace it before the short causes other damage.

May be too much moisture on the hot rod.

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.

There are a number of "electrical problems" that can cause the auger motor to not work. And there are ways to Troubleshoot it and solve the problem. Rather than go through the whole list of things, I am providing you with a link to your Owners Manual (in case you have misplaced yours), that you can download and print. http://www.traegergrills.com/Media/pdf/Manuals/BBQ075_Manual.pdf.

Keep in mind, the auger and the ignitor are 2 separate electrical devices. They work independently of each other.

Hope this helps you Troubleshoot and Solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks!

Instead of taking it back to the store, which I don't think will solve the problem. As, it's not really a warranty issue. Contact Traeger Industries Technical Service Dept 800-872-3437 for a solution to the Error Code.

Traeger... | Answered on Apr 14, 2011


You can go to www.traegergrills.com and go to the support tab and customer support can help you with getting a new hot rod and how to install it. You can also download a manual from this site. Hope this helps.

It sounds like you have a short somewhere. I would recommend that you check the ground wire to make sure that it is secure and grounding properly. It sounds like it has lost contact, or either you have a loose wire that is grounding out and that is what is causing the fuse to blow.
