How to read the DigiQ DX3's screen

The DigiQ DX3’s three digit LED display has three status indicators.

FAN STATUS INDICATOR

The Fan Status Indicator and Fan Display Warble will help determine how the fire is being controlled. When there is sufficient fuel in the pit, the fan will gently puff the fire, feeding it little bursts of oxygen. When the fan is energized, the display will blink about once per second (fan warble) and the Fan Status indicator will turn on. When the pit starts to run out of fuel, the fan will run almost all of the time.

DETERMINING THE OUTPUT PERCENTAGE FROM THE FAN WARBLE

The Fan Warble is designed so that the output percentage of the fan can be determined by counting how many display blinks (warbles) occur in a given cycle as per the table below:

TIP: If the output percentage is around 80-100% for a long time, the pit may be running out of charcoal. If the output percentage is around 10% for a long time and the temperature is oscillating, close the fan damper adjustment slightly for better control.

Food Done Message

When the food temperature reaches or exceeds the food setpoint, the display will indicate that the food is done and the beeper will sound.
