You may encounter one of two different messages during the pairing process between your grill and the app:

There is an issue with the router.

The grill is trying to connect to WiFi, but the WiFi is either not accepting or rejecting the grill. This makes the request times out. 


  1. Restart the router.
  2. Restart the grill.
  3. Begin the pairing process again.
