What version of the firmware is your D2 controller running? Mine is v01.00.11 How do you do a firmware update in the future? Is it automatic?

I noticed my grill is showing a new firmware today. v.01.01.00. Does anyone know if there is a change log available?

I was told by a customer service rep last week that an update it's available. I haven't received one however.

I was told you need to leave the grill idle and connected to Wi-Fi for 24-48 hrs. I was also told the signal strength needs to be -50 or better to get the update. Keep in mind to get a -45 signal I needed to be 6" from my network extender. I still haven't received an update though.

1st call to cust service said take controll off and check orange wire for the temp issues. I then called the wifire help number pressed 2 and got a person who seems to CARE MORE. A manager will be calling back.

Heres my settings from screen and version.

When they said to "check the orange wire" what are they refering to? Check for what? Most people can only check if it's plugged in. I'm trying to get a service/ wiring diagram for this controller and sensors. I then want to check my RTD based on several temp setpoints and also verify output voltages to fan, etc. I do expect some temp variation but keeping in mind that it is a fire pot providing the heat and reaction to the actual feedback will not be fast nor too precise. Other than smoking at 225 which it struggles to do, all higher temps are ok. My guess is either controller reflash and/or a new/different RTD.

meaning check to see if its plugged into the controller. I took out the 4 screws and the plug has 2 VERY long tabs that plug into the board mine was tilted at an angle but not out. weather or not that will make a difference TBA. Gona try again tonight.

Last night after checking the wire i put it back in and when you put the control back in you need to tilt it a bit the push top in or that orange jack dislodges again.

Set at 185 and ignite (new apple wood) hit 166 and stayed there fan did not come on and off on and off like before.
stepped up to 210 and it made it to 190-194 hit SUPER SMOKE went up to 225 and 230. shut off SS
stepped up to 500 at 8:03pm
490 @9min
481 @ 12min
482@ 13min
stabilized 482-486 @ 15min past turning it up.
shutdown

WHEN in super smoke noted that the fan did pulse again once it reached 225

Have you compared the pit RTD actual feedback to another thermometer? I have and I find the pit RTD reads a bit low. I find the higher the temp setpoint the larger the difference in accuracy. The thermocouple is beside the rtd during the comparison. I also did check the calibration of the comparison probe prior to this test.

Wow, that's quite a bit of difference. Thanks for posting your results. I might have to order one of those units and check mine.

I just left mine plugged in and it updated automatically. I didn't get any type of notice though. Traeger needs to improve the upgrade process, they should make it similar to an iPhone update. I hope someone from Traeger watches this forum and take notes :)

We did a test burn on our brand new Pro 780 last night. We were dropping connectivity to the app, but it only happened at the end of stages. It was odd. We were on the edge of our wireless network signal, so I will plug it in tonight in the garage with solid signal and see what the firmware is now, and if it updates overnight.

I do wish we could force the firmware. So far so good though. The controller seemed solid and worked as directed. Other than the drops. That may have been user error.
