Problems with Fire Magic Grill digital display?

Posted by lqofhb (My Page) on

We are preparing to purchase a 36" built-in gas Fire Magic grill but have some concerns about potential problems with the digital display. It appears there have been numerous problems with the Eschelon electronics/display but have not heard much about the Aurora display. Anyone have feedback on this?

Haven't heard this. What kind of problems?

I'm also not sure I would care that much since there isn't much the display does that I would lose sleep over. The FM is a top of the line unit but the display is not its main feature.

Thanks, weedmeister. Heard that the display on the echelon may get cloudy with humidity and the readout has been known to "streak" with lines through it. Since we live near the beach, that worries me. I agree - the readout isn't the main feature, but I'd be mad if my new grill was built-in and I had to look at a malfunctioning display or continually invest money in replacing/repairing the display after the year warranty expired. Sounds like they now have the option to order it without the front electronics so are probably going to try that version.
