Best solution for people having problems with their pro 575 is to just upgrade to the Ironwood. I went through 2 different pro 575s that each had the same issues (one had a faulty igniter also, basically a flame thrower instead), just received my Ironwood 650 yesterday and I am so glad I upgraded! It feels like a tank compared to the pro series, I was skeptical that it wouldn’t be much of an upgrade but it really is. More features on the controller (super smoke ?), higher temps, more insulation, the side table even, and honestly the wheels on all legs are low key my favorite upgrade.
I am so incredibly disappointed in Traeger right now. I received my pro 575 and right out of the box, I got the high temp error and the temp sensor out error. It will hold a temperature for about 10-15 min, then all of a sudden the control panel shoots up to 702 degrees and I get my errors. Traeger said I need a new thermocouple BUT it is back ordered for 4-6 weeks! They really weren't helpful and said I could find a dealer to purchase one. Ummm... your product is defective and I've already spent a ton of money on you! No dealers in my area even have the new parts for the new grills yet! It's really just ridiculous and it looks like other people are having similar issues in this forum. I HOPE that when I get this part (maybe in Aug) that it will fix the issue and that its not the control panel. I will be livid if I have to wait until the Fall to use this damn grill.
What also gets me, is that they will not do a return since its opened and assembled. HOW ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO KNOW IF IT WORKS IF YOU DONT PUT IT TOGERTHER? Seems like a cop out for sure.
I really wanted to love this grill, but it has been nothing but a headache. Looks like I will be out a grill for the entire summer.
