There is a fuse that you can check. There is a possibility that it is the ignitor, the auger motor, the controller, or the fan.
The process to tell which item is bad, is to disconnect all but the power and the RTD wire, plug it in and turn it to smoke, If the fuse blows it is the controller, if not turn it off and start hooking up the other wires one at a time, When you find the one that fries the fuse, you know what is bad.

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.

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

No one can answer your question unless you tell us what the code is. Try contacting Traeger

There is probably grease in the bottom of the barrel that is catching on fire. You need to clean it out.

If the auger won't turn because it's jammed, here's details direct from Treager

Elswise, I would check your electrical on the back of your control panel. There should be three sets of two-wire leads: (1) Purple/White=Hot Rod; (2) Orange/White=Induction Fan; and (3) Red/White=Auger. Obviously, check the Red/White leads for voltage and continuity.

Sounds like you need to replace the hot rod. Contact Traeger on their website at www.traegergrills.com for parts and instructions.

Traeger... | Answered on Dec 10, 2014

parts are available at the Traeger website at www.traegergrills.com. You need to contact them. It would be wise to have your model and serial number available.

Sounds like a short in the wiring harness. You probably should contact Traeger at www.traegergrills,com to see what they suggest.

Traeger... | Answered on Dec 10, 2014

Sounds like no power. Is it plugged into a GFI circuit that might have tripped. On its website in the FAQs Traeger mentions that if pellets get wet, this can cause a GFI circuit to trip and they suggest a specific remedy. Check out their website at http://www.traegergrills.com/ and if necessary contact their service techs who can help you troubleshoot.

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.

Traeger... | Answered on Dec 04, 2014

The fan is not supposed to run consistently. The purpose of the fan is to help control the temperature. It runs hard at first to help get the fire started then it slows down to maintain the temperature you've set. If you change to a higher temperature or if the temperature drops below what you've set, the fan will run faster causing the fire to burn hotter. You'll also find that as the temperature increases the amount of smoke will decrease.

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.
