Traeger log 212 (replacing hot rod)
Traeger 075 hot rod replacement. AVCHD
Did a rebuild on my traeger with parts furnished and am getting an err
message on the reader. Any ideas?
This was very helpful, especially the string trick. Thanks much.
Thank you so much for the video… Directions were not cutting it for me…
tip on attaching the wire was a huge help. Easy to follow and now my grill
is working again! Steaks for dinner tonight
Thanks for the video,big help. Also,when firing it up don’t let it go for
too long or too hot without the heat shield, I just burned the paint off
the top of my traeger. No biggie, I was planning to paint it again anyway.
Brian do you still have your original 075? mines 5 1/2 yrs old i had to
replace the firebox it was crumbling apart so i got a new Stainless steel
pot along with a stainless heat shield and drip pan
Thanks man. Going to do mine today! This was helpful
Save a little time and check your new hot rod BEFORE you install. It should
read 74 ohms. Mine blew the GFI multiple times, I pulled it and it read 61
Just added info: the hot rod only stays on for 10 to 15 minutes. If your
flames goes out due to lack of pellets for whatever reason, don’t just add
more pellets and let it run THEN POWER OFF THEN ON AGAIN. Because the pot
is going to be overloaded with pellets and you will have a big flame out.
When you loose your heat always clean your pot out and restart. Very
Thanks for the video and particularly the idea of using extra wire to pull
the new hot rod wire connected back through. I’ll be changing the fire pot
out as mine is burned out and falling apart. Interestingly, my hot rod is
still original equipment, works fine and is 11 years old. I bight my BBQ
075 Texas grill when they were still made in the USA – Mt Angel, OR. I
bought a combo rod and fire pot online and will replace both as long as I’m
I replaced the hot rod and fire pot today and thanks to this video it went
well. The wire trick and just how far to insert the new rod were extremely
helpful. I didn’t buy from Trager and I didn’t get any instructions at all.
Just a packing slip. Anyway, my Traeger fired right up. I’m waiting now to
see if it heats up like it did before the fire pot burned out. Again,
thanks for the video.
WHAT PURPLE AND WHITE WIRE??? NO ONE SHOWS THE PURPLE AND WHITE WIRE!!!
Thank you for these great instructions!!
