Traeger Ironwood 650
I spoke to Traeger this afternoon and here is the reply they sent in response. I should have the new code downloaded within 24 hours.

Here is the information for the known issue for the Ironwood 650:
Ironwood 650 has Pro 575 Code on it
Known Issue Great News - We’ve solved this issue!
There was a batch of Ironwood 650 that were released with Pro 575 code. This will cause the grill to not run as hot and not perform properly.

Current code and config file for Ironwood.
Solution
Have customer connect the grill. You (the agent) send the UUID or Serial number to traegersups@traegergrills.com and they will push updated code to the grill.

We have updated the serial number and UUID's in our system by telling our servers to push new code to those grills, but some could have been missed. Having the UUID or Serial Number will help us get them updated.
Customer Experience
Customer adds an Ironwood 650 to their phone and we push the update, the grill will be deleted from their phone. This is because the new Ironwood 650 has been updated to the grill and the Pro 575 code has been replaced.
Solution
  1. Have customer forget network on grill
  2. Go through pairing process again on the phone

Still waiting. I was told it would happen again on Thursday but...
I have a feeling they are still working on it before they send it out.

So, contacted Traeger again this morning as I'm still waiting for an update. I was told again they haven't got to mine yet. New version apparently is going to be 01.01.012. I'm still at 01.01.00 which apparently is the pro 575 code.

Hi Reza, welcome to the forum! You are correct, the newest version released is 01.01.00. We've been told a new version is coming out soon. Keep checking back here on the forum and we'll have it posted when it's released. To get the update the grill will just need to be turned on and connected to the internet.

Are you having problems with the grill?

Any word when the new firmware will be out? I have an Ironwood 885 and am experiencing the same issues, see below.

When I set the grill to 225 it will stop around 200 but if I set the grill to 230 it will go up to around 250? The other issue is after the grill has been on for about 30 minutes the fan starts cycling on and off and the temperature drops by 30 degrees or more. I have tried several cooks so far and the behavior mentioned above is consistent. I am wondering if something is wrong with the grill or if the controller needs a firmware update to better calibrate the unit?

I currently have the 01.01.01 software on my ironwood 650 and the thing still works extremely poorly imo. Smoking some mackerel right now set at 170 and running at 235 according the smoker and my calibrated thermometers are showing 245. The meat probe is a constant -25 off as well. Customer service is sending a new probe and said that +-25 set temp is normal which is bs IMO for what these things cost. I’m strongly regretting my decision to give Traeger a shot. Wish i could get my money back from them and just continue using my XL BGE

Prior to the update my 650 was good from 230 upward but was off at 225 and below. Since the update it has been good. I smoked some cauliflower at 180, then some sweet taters at 350 and sirloins seared at 500. Temps held within +/- 10 degrees the entire cook. In terms of comparing to my external thermometer probes it is close enough and within 10 degrees of the built in RTD. I have cooked a lot since the update and temps seem good at all ranges.

I did some testing over the weekend, at temps of 250 and above the grill is within 10 to 15 degrees of set temps, cooked ribs and pulled pork. which is fine. But at temps in the 220 to 240 range the temps swings pretty wildly, 30 degrees or more. I wonder if the issues can be addressed in future firmware update? Or is it a hardware issue?
