High Temp Error - D2

What's in This Article?

If you see a High Temp Error on your Traeger grill, please follow the instructions below to clear it. 



A High Temp Error is exclusive to WiFIRE-enabled grills. It usually occurs when your grill's temperature reaches 550ºF/285ºC or higher for more than a few minutes. These errors are generally caused by excessive grease or ash buildup in the grill, or an improper startup.



To clear your Traeger grill's High Temp Error, please take the steps below:

  1. Turn off and unplug your grill.  
  2. Clean out the firepot.
  3. Place 5-10 pellets back into the firepot.
  4. Replug and restart your grill.
    1. D2 grills require a closed-lid startup, meaning you should preheat your grill with the lid shut. Failure to do so can result in temperature irregularities throughout your cook. Use the directions below to perform a closed-lid startup:
      1. Close your grill's lid.
      2. Turn on your gill.
      3. Set your desired temperature.
      4. Press Ignite.
  5. If you still see a High Temp Error after you've restarted your grill, please clear your notifications. Then on your controller, navigate to Menu > Settings > Clear Notifications.
  6. If the issue persists, please contact Customer Service.
