WiFIRE Controller Functions

WiFIRE is the technology that connects your grill to your Traeger App. A WiFIRE controller is what powers the display on your WiFIRE Grill. Below are some of useful functions of the WiFIRE controller.

Clear Notifications

Clear Notifications is a useful controller function that clears non-critical notifications. You may want to use this if you find the controller is stuck on a notification like, "Clean grill."

  • To clear notifications go to Menu > Settings > Clear Notifications.
  • If clearing the notifications does not work, power cycle the grill by turning off and unplugging the grill, and then plugging it in and turning it on again.


If the display ever appears blank or is difficult to see in existing lighting, adjust the contrast of the display. Contrast issues generally occur in cold weather. If contrast adjustment does not resolve, please contact Customer Service.

  • To adjust contrast, go to Menu > Contrast > Adjust to preferred level.

Demo Mode

Demo mode runs all components of the grill as normal without igniting the hotrod. Turning Demo Mode on or off will reboot the controller and then wake it up again in the selected mode.

  • To turn on Demo Mode, follow these steps on the controller: Menu > Settings > Demo Mode > On.
  • To turn Demo Mode off, follow these steps on the controller: Menu > Settings > Demo Mode > Off

Standby Mode

Standby mode is the default mode that occurs when the grill is first turned on prior to beginning a cook. A grill must be in Standby Mode in order to apply a firmware update.

Temperature Conversion

WiFIRE-enabled grills allow users to change the temperature units between Celsius and Fahrenheit. The units selected from your controller will reflect on your app once paired. At this time, changing temperature units directly from the app is unavailable.

  1. Navigate to MENU
  2. Go to SETTINGS
  4. Choose between Celsius and Fahrenheit
