Install the three Porcelain grill sections (leave the middle section last) back into the grill
and close the lid.
SECTION TWO: INITIAL FIRING INSTRUCTIONS
(To be used on initial firing or anytime the Grill runs out of Pellets)
In order to ensure proper operation of the Grill, you must first
allow the Auger Tube to be “charged” with Pellets.
1) Open the Door and remove the Porcelain Grills, Grease Drain Pan and Heat Baffle
from inside the Grill.
2) Make sure the Switch is in the OFF (o) position. Plug the Power Cord into an
appropriate, grounded electrical outlet.
3) Open the Pellet Hopper Lid and locate the Auger. Make sure there are no foreign
objects in the Auger. Turn the Switch ON (--) and the Temperature/dial to smoke
look into the Pellet Hopper to confirm the Auger is turning. At the same time, place
your fingers over the Firepot and feel the air movement from the Draft Inducer Fan.
Look to see if the Hot Rod is getting hot (it will start to turn red). CAUTION! Do not
touch it. Turn the Temperature/dial to SHUT DOWN CYCLE.
4) Fill the Pellet Hopper with TRAEGER BBQ PELLETS. WARNING! Use only
TRAEGER BRAND BBQ PELLETS, which are specifically made to work in our
Grills. Never use heating fuel pellets in the Grill. Turn the Temperature/Dial to
HIGH. Note: During the initial charging of the Auger, it will take time for the Pellets to
travel from the Pellet Hopper to the Firepot. When the Pellets begin to fall into the
Firepot, turn the Temperature/Dial to Shut Down Cycle.
5) Set the Temperature/Dial to SMOKE. Let the Pellets come to full flame. Once you
see flames come out of the Firepot, turn the Temperature/Dial to SHUT DOWN
CYCLE, and let the Grill cool down.
Recommendation: For ease of clean-up, line the Grease Drain Pan with heavyduty aluminum foil. Be sure the edges and ends of the foil are tight against the
bottom of the Grease Drain Pan. Position the Heat Baffle, The foil lined Grease
Drain Pan and Porcelain Grills in their proper locations.
6) With the Door open set the Temperature/Dial to SMOKE. In approximately 2 minutes
you will notice whitish-gray smoke coming out of the Grill as the Pellets ignite. After
assuring the Pellets have ignited, close the Door and set the Temperature/Dial to
any cooking setting desired.
7) Note: Before cooking the first batch of food in your new Grill, you will need to
season the Grill. Turn the Temperature/Dial to HIGH and run for 45 minutes at
this setting with the Door closed. This must be done before cooking any food
on the Grill.
8) The Grill should be allowed to preheat for approximately 10 minutes with the Door
closed before placing food in the grill.
WARNING! START THE GRILL ON SMOKE SETTING
WITH THE DOOR OPEN
Once the Pellets are ignited, close the Door and
set the Temperature Dial to any cooking temperature desired.
WARNING! When operating this Grill, maintain a minimum
clearance of 12 inches from Grill to combustibles
SECTION THREE: SUBSEQUENT START-UP
With the Door open, turn the Switch ON (--) and the Temperature/Dial to SMOKE. In
approximately 2 minutes you will notice whitish-gray smoke coming out of the Grill
as the Pellets ignite. After assuring the Pellets have ignited, close the Door and set
the Temperature/Dial to any cooking setting desired. The Grill should be allowed to
pre-heat for approximately 10 minutes with the Door closed before placing food in
the Grill.
WARNING! If at any time, the Grill fails to light or the fire in the Firepot goes out while
cooking or smoking, when sufficient pellets are still in the Pellet Hopper, it is important
to follow these steps. Failure to do so may cause a hazardous “over-firing” of your grill
due to an excess of unburned pellets in the Firepot.
1) DANGER! Turn the Switch OFF (o) and disconnect the Power Cord. If the Grill is still
hot, allow it to thoroughly cool. Open the Door and remove all food, the Porcelain
Grills, Grease Drain Pan and the Heat Baffle.
2) WARNING! Remove all unburned pellets and ash from inside and around the
Firepot. (See instructions for proper handling and disposal of ash in Section
Five)
3) Before replacing the Heat Baffle, Grease Drain Pan and the Porcelain Grills, plug the
power Cord into an appropriate, grounded electrical outlet and restart the Grill. Pellets
should fall into the Firepot and the Hot Rod should begin to heat (it will start to turn
red). CAUTION! Do not touch it.
4) If this procedure is successful, you will soon see flames come out of the Firepot.
Then turn the Switch OFF (o), and let the Grill cool down. Position the Heat Baffle,
the Grease Drain Pan and Porcelain Grill in their proper locations. With the Door
open, turn the Switch ON (--) and the Temperature/Dial to SMOKE. In approximately
2 minutes you will notice whitish-gray smoke coming out of the Grill as the Pellets
ignite. After assuring the Pellets have ignited, close the Door and set the
temperature/Dial to any cooking setting desired.
5) If this procedure is not successful, see Section Six: FREQUENTLY ASKED
QUESTIONS for troubleshooting tips or contact Traeger Technical Support (Section
Seven) to help diagnose the problem before proceeding to the MANUAL LIGHTING
INSTRUCTIONS below.
MANUAL LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS:
If the Hot Rod only is not operating, the Grill can still be used to cook and smoke using
the MANUAL LIGHTING PROCEDURE below:
1) DANGER! Turn the Switch OFF (o) and disconnect the Power Cord. Allow the Grill to
thoroughly cool if it is still hot. From beneath the Pellet Hopper, disconnect the Hot
Rod (Purple / White wire pair as shown in the wiring diagram near the end of this
manual). You will need to remove the Hopper Bottom Panel to access the wiring.
Once the Hot Rod is disconnected, replace the Hopper Bottom Panel and plug the
Power Cord back into an appropriate, grounded electrical outlet.
2) Open the Pellet Hopper and fill with TRAEGER BBQ PELLETS.
WARNING! USE ONLY TRAEGER BRAND BBQ WOOD PELLETS, which are
specifically made to work in our Grills. NEVER use heating fuel pellets in the
Grill due to potential hazardous contaminants and additives that may be
present.
3) Remove the Porcelain Grills, Grease Drain Pan and Heat Baffle to expose the Firepot
In the bottom of the Grill.
4) Pour 1/2 cup of TRAEGER BBQ PELLETS into the Firepot.
5) Squirt 2 tablespoons of Alcohol Gel fire lighter into the Firepot on top of the Pellets.
DANGER! Never use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal lighter
fluid or similar liquids to start or “freshen up” a fire in this Grill. Keep all such liquids
well away from the Grill when in use.
6) Carefully light the Alcohol Gel with a fireplace match or a long-reach butane lighter.
DANGER! Never squirt Alcohol Gel into a burning fire or a hot Firepot. The Alcohol
Gel bottle could explode and cause a fire, serious injury or death.
7) Let the Alcohol Gel and Pellets burn for approximately 4 minutes.
8) After assuring the Pellets have ignited, install the Heat Baffle, Grease Drain Pan and
Porcelain Grills back in place.
CAUTION! You will now have a fire in the Firepot. Be careful not to burn yourself
when you install these components. Gloves are recommended.
9) Turn the Switch ON (--) and the Temperature/Dial to any setting desired. With the
Door closed, let the Grill pre-heat for approximately 10 minutes before placing food in
the Grill.
Control Shutdown cycle
The control for this barbecue comes with an automatic shut down cycle. When
finished cooking on your barbecue set the Temperature/Dial Knob to the Shutdown
Cycle position, this will leave the Draft Induction Fan running for ten minutes to burn any
excess pellets in the fire pot. After the fan runs for ten minutes the controller will power
off and the fan and it will stop running. CAUTION! The main power switch will shut the
power off to the controller and the Temperature/Dial Knob switch will cut off power to
the grill components only. When servicing the controller or any parts ensure that the
power supply is disconnected to avoid a shock hazard.
Control Safety Features
The controller comes equipped with 2 safety features that will help you to keep
the grill operating correctly. The first of these is a low temperature alarm. If the grill
stays below 125 degrees as read by the RTD temperature sensing device for a period
of 10 minutes the control will go into an alarm state and the display will read “ErL”. This
will shut off all power to the internal components of the grill. The display will stay in this
state until you turn off the main power switch.
The second safety feature will be a high temperature alarm. If the grill obtains an
internal temperature reading of 550 degrees as read by the RTD temperature sensing
device the control will go into alarm state and the display will read “ErH”.This will turn off
all power to the internal components of the grill. The display will stay in this state until
you turn off the main power switch.
Whenever either of these alarm conditions occurs you should check to see what
caused this condition and fix the problem. Call customer service if you need help.
SECTION FOUR: OPERATING TIPS
1) The Temperature Dial can be changed at any time to increase or decrease the
cooking temperature of the Grill. The HIGH/HIGHER Temperature settings are for
Grilling. The MED/MID RANGE Temperature settings are for Slow Cooking. The
SMOKE setting is for Smoking and adding Smoke Flavor to foods being cooked. The
SMOKE setting can also be used to “hold” foods at approximately 180 to 200
degrees F.
2) Your TRAEGER PELLET GRILL should never be moved while it is hot. If you are
transporting your Grill in a vehicle after cooking on it, make sure the fire is
completely out and the Grill is COLD before placing it in any vehicle. NEVER put
water into the Firepot. It will jam the Auger.
3) The TRAEGER PELLET GRILL is designed to operate with the Door/Lid CLOSED.
Cooking with the Door/Lid open greatly lengthens your cooking time.
4) NEVER add Pellets by hand to a hot Firepot. This is dangerous and you may be
seriously burned. If you run out of Pellets and lose your fire while cooking, let the
Grill completely cool and start again with the INITIAL FIRING INSTRUCTIONS.
5) Make sure the Heat Baffle is properly seated on its locating brackets. The long lips of
the Heat Baffle should be pointing down over the Firepot. If not seated properly,
direct heat and flame could come up out of the Firepot and cause a grease fire in the
Grill.
6) When estimating cooking times, the outside temperature will be an important factor.
If it is hot outside, it will take less time for food to cook. If it is cold, wet or windy, it
will take longer.
7) Grease fires are caused by not properly maintaining the Grill by failing to clean your
Grease Drain Pan, V-shaped Grease Drain and Grease Drain Tube on a consistent
basis. In the unlikely event of a grease fire while cooking, TURN THE SWITCH/DIAL
OFF and KEEP THE DOOR/LID CLOSED until the fire is completely out. Never
keep the Door/Lid open during a grease fire. If it does not go out, lightly sprinkle
baking soda on the fire. Be careful not to burn yourself. If this still does not work.
Then carefully remove the food from the Grill and keep the Door/Lid closed until the
fire is completely out. Again, be careful not to burn yourself. When the Grill is
completely cool, remove the Porcelain Grill and replace the foil on the Grease Drain
Pan. Clean any grease accumulation from the V-shaped Grease Drain and the
Grease Drain Tube. Replace the Grease Drain Pan and the Porcelain Grill in their
proper positions, restart the Grill and resume cooking.
8) CARBON MONOXIDE:
WARNING! Follow these guidelines to prevent this colorless, odorless gas from
poisoning you, your family or others.
•
•
•
Know the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning: headache, dizziness,
weakness, nausea, vomiting, sleepiness and confusion. Carbon monoxide
reduces the blood’s ability to carry oxygen. Low blood oxygen levels can result in
loss of consciousness and death.
See a doctor if you or others develop cold or flu-like symptoms while cooking or
in the vicinity of this Grill. Carbon monoxide poisoning, which can easily be
mistaken for a cold or flu, is often detected too late.
Alcohol consumption and drug use increase the effects of carbon monoxide
poisoning.
Carbon monoxide is especially toxic to mother and child during pregnancy, infants, the
elderly, smokers and people with blood or circulatory problems, such as anemia or heart
disease.
9) CAUTION! Grease fires are caused by not properly maintaining the Grill by failing to
clean your Grease Drain Pan, V-shaped Grease Drain and Grease Drain Tube on a
consistent basis. (See Section Five for maintenance instructions) In the unlikely
event of a grease fire while cooking, turn the Switch OFF (o) and Keep the Door
closed until the fire is completely out. Never keep the Door open during a grease fire.
If it does not go out, lightly sprinkle baking soda on the fire. CAUTION! Be careful
not to burn yourself. If this does not work then carefully remove the food from the
Grill and keep the Door closed until the fire is completely out. Again, be careful not
to burn yourself. When the Grill is completely cool, remove the Porcelain Grill and
replace the foil on the Grease Drain Pan. Clean any grease accumulation from the Vshaped Grease Drain and the Grease Drain Tube. Replace the Grease Drain Pan
and the Porcelain Grill in their proper positions, restart the Grill and resume cooking.
SECTION FIVE: MAINTAINING
YOUR NEW GRILL
1) CREOSOTE AND GREASE: Formation and need for removal.
When wood pellets are burned slowly, they produce tar and other organic vapors that
combine with expelled moisture to form creosote. The creosote vapors condense in
the relatively cool flue exhaust of a slow burning fire. As a result, creosote
accumulates on the flue lining. When ignited, creosote makes an extremely hot fire.
Airborne grease particles will travel through the cooking chamber and some of this
airborne grease will accumulate on the flue lining, similar to the creosote, which could
be contributory to a fire.
The flue exhaust should be inspected at least twice a year to determine when a
creosote and/or grease buildup has occurred.
Also, grease drippings from the food will fall onto the Grease Drain Pan and be
channeled into the Grease Drain and then out of the Grill through the Grease Drain
Tube, to be collected in the Grease Bucket. Grease will accumulate in all of these
locations.
The Grease Drain, the Grease Drain Tube and the Grease Bucket should be
inspected at least twice a year for signs of grease buildup.
When creosote or grease has accumulated, it should be removed to reduce the risk
of fire.
Cleaning Grease from your Grill:
DANGER! Turn the Switch OFF (o) and disconnect the Power Cord.
1) Change the aluminum foil on the Grease Drain Pan frequently. Periodically, clean
the grease out of the V-shaped Grease Drain and Grease Drain Tube and off of the
interior surfaces of the Grill. Empty the Grease Bucket occasionally and line with
aluminum foil for easy clean-up. It is easier to clean off accumulated grease when
the Grill is warm. BE CAREFUL NOT TO BURN YOURSELF. If too much grease is
allowed to build up on the Grease Drain Pan and in the V-shaped Grease Drain, or
is allowed to plug the Grease Drain Tube, a grease fire could result. We recommend
cleaning these locations regularly.
2) Outside surfaces: DO NOT use oven cleaner, abrasive cleansers or abrasive
cleaning pads on the outside Grill surfaces. Use warm soapy water to cut the
grease.
3) If the Grill is stored outside during the rainy season, care should be taken to ensure
that water does not get into the Pellet Hopper. Wood pellets, when wet, expand
greatly and will jam your Auger. A TRAEGER GRILL COVER to protect the Grill is
highly recommended! Covers are available from your Traeger Dealer, or log on
to our Web Site – www.traegergrills.com.
4) Depending on use, periodically remove the Porcelain Grill, Grease Drain Pan and
Heat Baffle to clean the ash from in and around the Firepot. A shop-vac is handy for
this chore. Make sure the Grill is COLD before starting this procedure.
5) We recommend keeping a long-handled cleaning brush near the Grill. After
removing your food, give the Porcelain Grill a quick brushing. It takes only a minute
and it will be ready the next time you want to use the Grill. Be careful not to burn
yourself.
DISPOSAL OF ASHES:
WARNING! Ashes should be placed in a metal container with a tight-fitting lid. The
closed container of ashes should be placed on a non-combustible floor or on the
ground, well away from all combustible materials, pending final disposal. When the
ashes are disposed of by burial in soil or otherwise locally dispersed, they should be
retained in the closed container until all cinders have thoroughly cooled.
SECTION SIX: FREQUENTLY ASKED
QUESTIONS
WHY WON’T MY GRILL IGNITE?
1) Verify power at the electrical outlet.
a) If Power Cord is connected to a GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter), check and reset
if necessary.
b) Initiate startup.
Still no ignition – Proceed to step 2.
2) Disconnect Power Cord from electrical outlet.
a) Remove the Control and check the fuse on back. Replace the fuse if blown.
Reinstall the Control!
b) Unplug Hot Rod connector (Purple/White wire pair), plug Power Cord into an
appropriate, grounded electrical outlet and turn the Switch/Dial ON. NOTE: At
this point the Grill will not ignite.
c) Check the Draft Inducer Fan and the Auger Drive Motor for operation. If both
are operating -- the Hot Rod needs to be replaced. If one or both are not
operating, contact Traeger Technical Support (SECTION SEVEN) for additional
troubleshooting help. Contact your Traeger Dealer or the Traeger Parts
Department (SECTION SEVEN) to place an order.
3) If the problem is identified to be a failed Hot Rod, the Grill can still be used to cook
and smoke by following the MANUAL LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS in SECTION
THREE of this OWNER’S MANUAL.
WHY ARE NO PELLETS BEING DELIVERED INTO THE FIREPOT?
1) Verify that there are Pellets in the Pellet Hopper. If this is the INITIAL FIRING or the
Grill has run out of Pellets, allow sufficient time for the Pellets to travel from the
Pellet Hopper to the Firepot (can take up to 7 minutes).
2) Initiate startup. See INITIAL FIRING INSTRUCTIONS in SECTION TWO of this
OWNER’S MANUAL.
Still no Pellets in the Firepot – Proceed to step 3.
3) Disconnect Power Cord from electrical outlet.
a) Unplug the Auger Drive Motor (Red/White wire pair connector) and the Draft
Inducer Fan (Orange/White wire pair connector).
b) Reconnect the Draft Inducer Fan to the Red/White wire pair and the Auger
Drive Motor to the Orange/White pair.
c) Plug Power Cord into an appropriate, grounded electrical outlet and turn the
Switch/Dial ON.
d) If the Auger Drive Motor is operating (check the small fan blade on the back of
the motor), the problem is in the Three Speed or Digital Control, which will need
to be replaced. Contact your Traeger Dealer or the Traeger Parts
Department (SECTION SEVEN) to place an order.
4) If the Auger Drive Motor is not operating but the Draft Inducer Fan is operating, the
problem is in the Auger system, which will need to be checked.
a) With the Power Switch and the Switch/Dial OFF, locate the small fan blade
on the back of the Auger Drive Motor.
b) While watching the fan blade, turn the Power Switch and then the Switch/Dial to
ON. If the fan blade does not turn, turn the Switch/Dial to OFF. This indicates a
defective Auger Drive Motor and it will need to be replaced. Contact your
Traeger Dealer or the Traeger Parts Department (SECTION SEVEN) to place
an order.
c) If the fan blade turns a bit and then stops, continue watching and turn the
Switch/Dial to OFF. If the fan blade UNWINDS slightly, this indicates a jam in
the Auger system which will need to be cleared.
d) Disconnect Power Cord from electrical outlet and remove Pellets from the Pellet
Hopper. Check for foreign objects and wet/decomposed Pellets, both of which
can cause a jam in the Auger system. The Auger will need to be removed to
clear a jam in the Auger system. See “HOW DO I REMOVE THE AUGER IF IT
JAMS?” section below.
`
HOW DO I REMOVE THE AUGER IF IT JAMS?
1) Remove any covers necessary to access the Auger Drive Motor.
2) Remove the screw connecting the Auger Drive Motor shaft to the Auger shaft and
the screw retaining the Auger Bushing into the Auger Tube.
3) With a small pipe wrench or locking pliers on the Auger shaft, turn the Auger counter
clockwise. It will turn hard until it breaks free, then the Auger will turn freely.
4) Remove the Auger and clean all Pellets, ash or foreign objects from the Auger,
Auger Tube and Firepot. A shop-vac is ideal for this task.
5) Sand the outside surfaces of the auger with medium grit sandpaper. Check the
inside of the Auger Tube and sand it if needed. Vacuum the sanding grit out of the
Auger Tube and Firepot when finished.
6) Reinstall the Auger Bushing and the Auger into the Auger Tube, making sure that
the Auger rotates freely.
7) Re-attach the Auger shaft to the Auger Drive Motor shaft.
WHY DOES MY GRILL FIRE GO OUT ON “SMOKE” SETTING?
Excess ash in the Firepot may be the problem.
1) Open the Door/Lid and remove the Porcelain Grill, Grease Drain Pan and Heat
Baffle from inside the Grill.
2) IMPORTANT: Remove all unburned Pellets and ash from inside and around
the Firepot. A shop-vac is ideal for this task CAUTION! ASSURE THAT THE
GRILL IS COLD TO AVOID A FIRE FROM HOT ASH.
3) Replace the Heat Baffle, Grease Drain Pan and the Porcelain Grill and initiate startup procedure.
4) If this didn’t remedy the problem, contact Traeger Technical Support (SECTION
SEVEN) for additional troubleshooting help.
WITH THE TRAEGER DIGITAL CONTROL, WHAT DIAL SETTING IS
RECOMMENDED FOR STARTING THE GRILL?
The auto-start procedure is the same for all Grill Controls. With the Door/Lid open,
turn the Switch/Dial ON and Temperature Dial to SMOKE. In approximately 2
minutes you will notice whitish-gray smoke coming out of the Grill as the Pellets
ignite. After assuring the Pellets have ignited, close the Door/Lid and set the
Temperature Dial to any cooking setting desired.
