Every appliance must be grounded for safety reasons, and your Traeger grill is no different. We'll discuss the importance of grounding your investment below.
WHY IS ELECTRICAL GROUNDING IMPORTANT?
Grounding helps protect you and your home from the dangers of damaged circuits or electrical overloads. Without electrical grounding, stray voltage could start a fire, damage appliances, or shock bystanders.
When you're adjusting your grill's electrical components, you must secure your grounding wires to your grill using metal-to-metal contact.
WHAT COLOR ARE TRAEGER GRILLS' GROUNDING WIRES?
Traeger grills have several different wires; grounding wires are either green or green and yellow.
HOW DO I INSTALL OR RECONNECT MY GROUNDING WIRES?
Your grounding wires should already be attached to your Traeger grill. On the rare occasion that your grill doesn't come with grounding wires, please contact our Customer Service.
If you've received a replacement part for your grill and don't know how to reconnect your grounding wires, we're here to help.
RECONNECTING GROUNDING WIRES TO WIFIRE-ENABLED GRILLS
Please take the steps below to reconnect your grounding wires to your WiFIRE-Enabled Grill:
- Attach one end of the green and yellow grounding wire to your main power switch harness.
- Connect the other end of the green and yellow grounding wire to your grill's auger bushing, using the metal loop to thread the auger bushing/self-tapping screw.
- Line up the auger bushing screw with the auger bushing groove.
NOTE: If the auger bushing screw is screwed in too tightly, your grill's auger may get stuck.
