Your D2 WiFIRE-enabled grill has a WiFi Reset function. Let's review when you should use this function and how to do it correctly.
Which Grills Have a WiFi Reset Function?
D2 WiFIRE grills — grills with a variation of the controller shown below — have a WiFi Reset option.
New Timberlines and Ironwoods with touchscreen controllers do not have this function. If you have a grill with a touchscreen, see Forget Network.
What Does a WiFi Reset Do?
A WiFi Reset (SSID reset) forces your grill to forget any networks the grill has connected to previously.
- Performing multiple WiFi Resets will not break or damage a controller.
When Should I Reset My Grill's WiFi?
Resetting your WiFi is a helpful option to do whenever you are connecting a grill that has been connected to a WiFi network previously. Scenarios may include:
- Connecting a grill that has lost connection
Connecting a grill to a new WiFi network or even when the WiFi network password has changed.
