Hopper-pellets burned inside (black) and paint damaged

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have no idea what happened - I went out to my Traeger, it was running, but no fire. When I opened the hopper, alot of the pellets were black and the paint on the outside of the hopper was bubbled. Now when I turn it on, the auger doesn't turn, but the igniter still works. Did I burn up the control board?

Empty out all the pellets...   Probably some foreign material jamming the auger...   They are designed to slip when jammed....

I tried that - maybe I'll try again. I'm just afraid that it not only blackened the pellets, but burned up the control board. I have no idea what happened.
