What Is the Smart Combustion Motherboard?

Unlike D2 controllers, the "controller" on touchscreen grills is divided between two components: the display and the motherboard. The display has its own small computer that manages what is shown on the display, whereas the motherboard is "the brains" of the grill, controlling the grill's mechanical components and acting as the method of communication between the parts and the display.


Motherboard vs Motherboard Housing

When looking at service parts, you will often see the Smart Combustion Motherboard include the word, "housing," in the name. So, what's the difference between the motherboard and the motherboard housing?

  • Motherboard: As shown in the image above, the motherboard is the grill's computer. Grill components connect to it, and it communicates needed actions based on the information it receives.
  • Motherboard Housing: The Smart Combustion Motherboard Housing is the larger unit that is comprised of the motherboard, the power supply board, and a black plastic base.

The Smart Combustion Motherboard Housing and the power supply board are each individual service parts; however, the motherboard is not a service part on its own and requires the full housing when needing to be replaced.
