GMG problems

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
After my Traeger fire I bought a GMG Daniel Boone. I hate this thing. First off the Traeger cooked food more evenly. From poppers to chicken the Traeger is superior. Now I have only owned the GMG a couple months but it seems to randomly trip of my outdoor outlets. You can move to another and it still won't turn on. Let it set for a bit and magically it works again. Frustrated beyond belief

It might not be the grill. There could be something wrong with your wiring. I do know if you use a lead cord, it needs to be as short as possible and at least 14 gage. I use a 10' 12 g lead i made. Haven't had the issue your describing.
But, I'd definitely call customer service. GMG has a stellar CS reputation.

I agree with Mowin. It might be the wiring. I just bought the Daniel Boone myself. I use a 10 foot 12 gauge extension cord and have not had any tripping of the outlets. One of the reasons I bought the GMG was the reputation of customer service. I sent them a email about using extension cords and they replied back within a hour. Give them a call and see what they have to say.

Just called the place I bought it from. They are going to do some checking. After further investigation it's not the wiring (I kind of suspected that since the house is almost brand new and I pretty much held the electricians hand). When it goes off you can unplug it and plug in something else and it works. I also tried different outlets. They think possibly a bad board.

Glad you are getting some where. Not sure how many of us own the Daniel Boone, so let us know what the outcome is.

I don't have a GMG but another pellet grill and it worked fine then all of a sudden it started to trip my outdoor outlet.  Called Rec Tec and they said its 99% a bad ignitor...I replaced it and its worked fine.  Perhaps thats your issue?
