Understanding and Troubleshooting Traeger Error Codes
Traeger grills have become a popular way to cook up delicious meals with that smoky flavor in the comfort of your own backyard. However, like all electronic devices, they can sometimes run into problems, including error codes. Traeger error codes are alphanumeric messages that appear on your grill’s digital display when there is a malfunction. In this article, we will guide you through common Traeger error codes and how to troubleshoot them.
What are Traeger Error Codes?
Traeger error codes are codes that appear on your grill’s digital display when there is a problem. Each error code
corresponds to a specific issue. Some of the most common Traeger error codes include:
- ErH – The hot rod has malfunctioned.
- ErL – The temperature sensor has malfunctioned.
- Er2 – The auger is blocked or jammed.
- Er3 – The temperature probe has shorted out.
- ERR – A generic error has occurred.
Troubleshooting Traeger Error Codes
If you encounter an error code on your Traeger grill, there are a few things you can do to troubleshoot the problem.
If you see the ErH error code, it means that the hot rod is not functioning correctly. One possible solution is to unplug the grill for a few minutes and then plug it back in. If the error code persists, you may need to replace the hot rod.
If you see the ErL error code, it means that the temperature sensor has failed. Try cleaning the sensor with a soft cloth and see if that resolves the issue. If not, you may need to replace the sensor.
If you see the Er2 error code, it means that the auger is jammed or blocked. Turn off the grill and check for any obstructions in the auger or hopper. Clear any blockages and try restarting the grill.
If you see the Er3 error code, it means that the temperature probe has shorted out. Try cleaning the probe with a soft cloth and see if that resolves the issue. If not, you may need to replace the probe.
Traeger error codes can be frustrating, but they are typically easy to troubleshoot and fix. By following these simple steps, you can get your Traeger grill back up and running in no time.
