Firestick quit

Postby bobcat1 » Sat Oct 14, 2017 7:14 am

Well the flame went out early this morning. Seems the fire starter isn't working. :x Auger was working so I pulled everything out, dumped the ash cup, put in a handful of pellets. and lit them with my handy dandy torch. Everything back on track now. Probably going to dry out the brisket... we'll see. :dont: I guess Monday I will call Camp Chef again and see if I am entitled to a new firestick. :angryfire: Bet that's going to be a wench to change out.

Found this one from SmokeDaddys. Ordered it. Last time I tried to talk to Camp Chef I wasn't pleased.

I thought about not buying one after the torch Idea for starting the burn pot worked so good. If this one ever fails I may never buy another one. :lol:

You have to light the pot with everything turned off. Then bypass startup and it will work. First try the fan was blowing it out before I could get it lit..... I know Duh! :banghead:

Looks like you found a good igniter.
The one in my original (USA made) Traeger is now 19 years old and still working........ Admittedly it don't get used as much anymore since I have other choices.

Got the new one installed. It was a little bit bigger around than the old one so I drilled the pipe it goes in out a little and it fit perfect. Funny thing the original one came out like this. Spliced wires. Very happy to have the made in USA one in.
