Clearing an Auger Jam In a D2 Grill

'Clear Auger' Function

The easiest way to clear an auger jam in a WiFIRE-enabled (D2) grill is to use the built-in Clear Auger Jam function.When the user runs a Clear Auger command from the menu, the auger turns backward at full speed for ten seconds, pauses for one second, turns forwards for twelve seconds, pauses for one second, and repeats until the user cancels the operation from the menu.

  2. Clean out the firepot, vacuuming out any ash buildup.
