Is your grill not turning on? Chances are that you have a blown fuse within your grill (not a blown fuse in your home's circuit breaker) due to a faulty mechanical component or damaged wires.
You may also want to check out our AC Grill Power Issues article for issues beyond a blown fuse.
Please note that this article focuses on troubleshooting non-WiFIRE-enabled (AC) grills. If you have a WiFIRE-enabled (D2) grill, please see D2 Grill Power Issues.
Fuses are specific to AC grills, and are typically found on the back of the controller in one of two locations: a green or grey box with a lid (may have an additional fuse zip-tied to it), or in a black tube with a screw-on cap. You will notice that your controller comes with an extra fuse, zip tied to the back of the fuse box.
Start with a thorough visual inspection of wires to make sure that there are no rubbed/melted insulation on any wires. The following troubleshooting steps are designed to isolate specific mechanical components, allowing you to determine where the short is.
If you need more fuses ASAP to complete the test, you can purchase 3-5 AMP fuses from local hardware stores. You may also order fuses on our website here.
