Question about Grilling

1 Answer

Traeger fan wont work

I have an older Traeger Junior and when I start the grill on smoke all I hear is the auger. As the pellets fall into the firepot a small amount of smoke comes out but then the firepot begins to fill with pellets and eventually shuts itself off.

SOURCE: My pellet stove will start

You need to replace the auger motor. Go to fasco .com they may have one. Or enco.com I have a pellet stove and i have replaced both the auger motor and the motor that turns the hopper.

SOURCE: mower starts runs begins to back fire and run

Sounds like it is leaning out, running out of fuel. That can be the strainer at the gas tank, any fuel filters it has. Disconnect the fuel line from the carb and see how good the flow is to it, and check for water. A new spark plug never hurts.

SOURCE: the auger is not turning

Have you recently changed the brand of pellets form what you have used in the past? If so, please understand that no two wood pellet manufacturers make their pellets the same way. If this is the case, you will have to retweak your stove to that brand of pellets you're now using. Also, check the auger to make sure it's not jammed and that auger shaft is properly fitted into the auger drive motor coupling..

Hope this helps solve your problem.

SOURCE: I have a manual Herman pellet stove. The auger gets jammed often. Should i have the pellet box filled? Would this make a difference? Thank You.

If you have the pellet box too full this will cause the auger to jam.

MY traeger grill will start up and smoke and reach the set temp.but then after a short time it just stops feeding pellets and will not feed anymore pellets untill I turn off and start all over.


Are you sure you're waiting long enough? The way it works is that it shuts the auger on and off for designated times. You have to wait the designated interval (up to 135 seconds of inactivity). You can adjust this on some models as shown here: http://tipsforbbq.com/Definition/Traeger-P-Setting

Hi Terry,

This may help... ...from Treager's site FAQ

"My Unit Goes Out On Smoke
  1. Open the cooking chamber lid and remove cooking grill, angled drip pan and U-shaped firepot cover. Look and see if there is a large accumulation of pellet ash in and around the firepot. If there is, it will need to be cleaned out. Do this ONLY WHEN THE GRILL IS TOTALLY COLD! Replace U-shaped firepot cover, angled drip pan and cooking grills and resume cooking/smoking process.
  2. If this does not remedy the problem, please contact the Traeger Service Department."
From my personal experience, cleaning out the pellet ash is needed when the smoker will not hold a high temperature regardless of the thermostat setting.

In your case, the fire pot may be packed with pellet ash and pellets from the auger jamming.

Good luck.

Breaking up solid pettet in auger


Traeger has an FAQ related to this on their website at http://www.traegergrills.com/. Look for it under" why are there no pellets in the firepot?" You may have to remove the augur but Traeger explains how to do it in this FAQ.

On smoke setting my temp goes up over 300 degrees


Traeger suggests realignment of the augur for grills that are not getting hot enough. I wonder if this might be the same solution for grills that are getting too hot.

Here's their solution which I copied from the Traeger website at http://www.traegergrills.com/.

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

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.
You might want to contact Traeger at their website to verify that this is a solution for overheating. In the above case, the improperly aligned augur was not dropping enough pellets in the firepot. In your case, it sounds like it may be dropping too many. This sounds like a routine maintenance thing that ought to be done periodically anyway.

Blows cold air


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.

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.

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.

the smoker does not emit smoke continuously. The pellets are pushed into the firepot at a speed relative to the temp setting. If you listen to it you will hear it go through the heating cycle and see that is a normal condition.
