TRAEGER GRILL SHUTS DOWN WHEN UNPLUGGING MEAT PROBE

What's in This Article?

What to do if your Traeger grill enters shut down mode after removing a wired meat probe from the grill's controller. 

SYMPTOM

The grill shuts down on its own after unplugging a wired meat probe.

CAUSE

Your Traeger grill has safety precautions set up in its programming to protect itself from events like power surges. In this situation, you likely were carrying static electricity on your person (i.e. walking on carpet with socks), when you unplugged your meat probe. The grill recognized a power surge and entered shut down mode as a safety precaution.

RESOLUTION

This is a normal function, and your grill will continue to work as designed in future cooks. To prevent this from happening again, you can ground yourself by touching a part of the grill (like the hopper lid) before plugging in or unplugging your wired meat probe.
