Timberline 1300 & 850
I had an overheat incident in my brand new timberline 850. This is my third Traeger grill, current have the 1,300 and 850. Never had serious function problems but 850 is acting badly. Overheated till 560 last night when set to 450. After overnight cool down and thorough clean and vacuum now won’t preheat properly. This is my third attempt at abnormal preheat. Sits stalled at ambient environment temp then suddenly races to 425-450 when set to 200. Seems to settle 100 degrees over set temp. Any ideas?

Mine also seems very little smoke, even on super smoke settings. I’m think it’s the controller. Hopefully traeger helps me out when I call.

I had similar, slow start then temp overshoot. Traeger sent me a new firepot/hotrod assembly which cured my issue.

It may be a product problem, or your operation is not correct. Has the problem been solved?

No still happening but I do not have the time to sit on hold on the Traeger helpline right now. Catching up to this thread now for the first time, I think I need either the controller or the hot rod and fire box. I have had Traeger’s 4 years with no problems the small ironwood is my first problem.
