I can’t open my Traeger app. It only shows the Traeger name. I deleted the app with all the data and reinstalled the app
When I try to sign in I get a message that says “Signing in Please wait” and have waited for hours with no result.
I also changed the PW -No luck . Does anyone know how to delete my account on the app so I can start over or any other ideas?
BTW- The software is up to date on my grill.

They updated the app and grill firmware, it messed things up, especially on iOS devices. I updated, now no connection. I called support and they know about this and are supposed to release a new app version soon. I had to delete the app when it would stick with a blank Traeger background. But it simply can not provision my T850 onto my home network, until a fix comes out.

Sounds like a hurry up and wait situation as they have no idea what to do anymore with a system they messed up. Sounds like a German car manufacturer I know well ?

I am not sure they have version 2 right. I lost connection twice during a 3-2-1 rib cook the other day and the keep warm button is too easy to touch by mistake, wondered why my temp was going down, looked at the app and the keep warm light was on! Also could not set the timer no matter what I did. I will wait for an update and then pass some real serious comment then

I received a reply from a customer service supervisor. They just released a new app 1.4.2
Make sure you delete the old app with data then turn off your phone and then install the new app
Everything is now working for me. If that doesn’t work they suggested creating a new account with a different email.

There is a new update to SW VER: 02.00.01. I found this out the hard way.
On Sunday I went to start a cook but my Ironwood 650 was "Offline", the smoker was showing that it was connected to my wifi but the app wasn't buying that. I checked my app ver. It was the latest for IOS Ver 1.4.2.(2). The Ironwood was at SW VER 2.00.00, CONFIG VER 6.008. I followed the Traeger Troubleshooting Wizard (http://wizard.web.traegergrills.io/wifire/welcome) but could not get the app to connect to the grill. I decided to do a manual cook and try again on Monday. I suspected that maybe Traeger had a server problem ( I think the app and the grill connect via the cloud. Someone correct me if I'm wrong) I did a reset on the grill and left it in standby overnight.
On Monday it still was offline and the grill hadn't taken any updates. I decided to start from scratch. I deleted the grill from my app and removed it from my network and put it back in AP mode. I started the process of connecting the grill to wifi. Throughout this process it downloaded an update and a bunch of files, but would not connect and provided an error message. I checked the grill, it was connected to my network and I noticed that the SW VER had changed to 02.00.01! Since this was a new version I probably had to try adding the grill again. I started the process to add a grill, this time it connected and the app now shows the grill is online! My guess is that if you don't have both the latest app version and the latest SW version on the grill that it will not connect. If this is the case it would be nice if Traeger would send a notification for us to perform an update. I usually leave my grill powered off so if they upgrade something while its off I'll be able to take action without going through this again.

After reading this I plugged in my Timberline 850 v2.00.00 and turned it on. It immediately displayed "Updating Software". When it was done I checked its version number, now 2.00.02. I then checked WiFi settings, it was connected to my home network, opened the Traeger App in my iPhone and it connected to the grill immediately.

So great news that mine updated itself with no issues!

Regarding the Traeger App and WiFire... When you set a timer on the app or set a temperature for the prob, is the app supposed to notify you?
I only hear the beep from the Traeger and not a single notification from the app. I wasn't sure if its a setting that I can not find or if Traeger really needs to add this function to the app.

Running Android App version 1.4.1

I get notifications on my phone, even without opening up the Traeger app after starting the grill. I get all notifications as a ringing and a visual display. Maybe you have notifications disabled in the phone? I’m running IOS latest version.

So, it might just be the Android version that needs better development from Traeger as it sounds like their iOS version has the functionality. It's a feature that is needed as it kind of defeats the purpose of having WiFIRE if you have to be outside next to your smoker to get alerts and notifications.
