What's in This Article?

A step-by-step walkthrough to pair a WiFIRE grill using an Android device (including Google Pixels).

 

PRE-PAIRING CHECKLIST

Before pairing, ensure your grill, home WiFi, and Android device are properly set up.

  • Download the Traeger App
    Note that the Traeger app is supported only on Android 10 or newer. Older versions may not permit full functionality of the app. Galaxy S22 with Android 13 OS cannot pair.
    1. Go to the Google Play store on your Android phone.
    2. Search for Traeger and download the Traeger App.
    3. Open the app and either create an account or log into a pre-existing account.
  • Check your Home WiFi Setup
  • Check the grill’s proximity to the router
    • The grill should be within 30 ft from the router.

 

PAIRING INSTRUCTIONS

Connect your Grill Using a QR Code

  1. Plug in your grill and turn on your grill.
  2. Open the Traeger App on your Android device.
  3. Sign In using your existing Traeger account credentials, or select Sign Up to create a new account.
  4. Locate the QR code under the lid of your pellet hopper.
    • If you have replaced your controller, the QR Code under your hopper lid will not be associated with the new controller. You need to use the QR Code that came with your new controller.
  5. Tap + Add New Grill.
  6. Select I Have a QR Code, and scan the code with your device.
  7. Enter your home WiFi password. If given the option, select the 2.4 GHz network option.
  8. Choose a Nickname for your grill.
  9. Start Traegering!

Connect your Grill Manually without a QR Code

You will need to pair your grill using this method if you have replaced your controller.

  1. Plug in your grill and turn on your grill.
  2. Open the Traeger App from your Android device and sign In using your existing Traeger account credentials, or select Sign Up to create a new account.
  3. When prompted to locate a QR Code, select I Don't Have A QR Code.
  4. Enter the grill's Name.
    • On your grill's controller, navigate to MENU > WIFI INFORMATION > GRILL NAME. The password is the 4 characters listed after, "Name: Traeger-".
  5. Tap Continue.
  6. Enter the grill's Password.
    • The password is the 4-digit number after, "Password: WiFIRE-".
  7. Tap Continue.
  8. Enter the grill's UUID.
    1. On your controller, navigate to MENU > SETTINGS > ABOUT GRILL.
    2. Find the UUID on the screen.
  9. Tap Continue.
  10. Enter your WiFi network password.
    • In rare instances, a message to Enter Serial Number may pop up.
    • If this occurs enter the grill's serial number which is located on the sticker underneath the hopper lid.
    • If you cannot locate the serial number, contact customer service.
