How to Replace a Power Switch on a D2 WiFIRE Grill

  1. Make sure your Traeger grill is turned off and unplugged. 
  2. Remove the hopper's access panel by unscrewing the 4 Phillips screws with your screwdriver. 
    • Depending on your model, this may be on the side or bottom of the hopper. 
  3. Find the power switch box. Squeeze the top and bottom of the switch box as you push the switch out of the grill's hopper.
    • NOTE: You may need to slide the switch back and forth to pry it out of your hopper.
  4. Disconnect your power switch's 3 wires from where they connect.
  5. Use the wires from the new power switch to replace the wires just unplugged.
  6. Insert the new switch into your hopper.
    • Your new switch's orientation will not affect your grill, but it's best if the ON button is at the top for easy use. 
  7. Reinstall your hopper access panel.
  8. Reattach your power cable, plug in your grill and Traeger on!

How to Confirm Your New Power Switch Is Working

  1. Plug in your grill.
  2. Flip the power switch to the ON position. If the switch lights up, you've installed the switch correctly!
    • If the switch does not light up, make sure the outlet is active by plugging in another appliance such as a hair dryer. 
    • Make sure the wires were plugged in securely.
    • If you have any questions, we invite you to contact Customer Support.
