My Traeger Exec is now tripping my GFCI after only 5-10 seconds of operation. I've tried other circuits (outlets) and replaced the power cord to the terminals. Do you have any experience with the problem and the solution. The grill is about 10 years old. Thanks

Popping a GFI means that one of the components is lightly shorting to ground which a GFI is designed to detect and trip for safety.

Unplug one item as a time, Fan, Auger Motor, Ignitor. If the GFI doesn't pop, you've got the culprit.

Hopefully it's not the controller, but try these other components first.
