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

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.

SOURCE: I turned off my grill

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I'm getting an "Err" message on my digital temperature reading. The grill starts up but then shuts down when the "Err" message comes up.


Remove your grill, inner shield and outer dip plate from the Traeger. Start the Traeger in smoke mode. Observe to see if the blower fan is working. Is the auger turning? Are the pellets dry? Condensation can make the pellets swell and cause plug ups.
