Just received my ET-732 about 1 week ago & I tried to use it this past weekend. This is what I wrote to Maverick:
I recently (withing the last 1 1/2 weeks) bought a new ET-732. I am really imnpressed with it features and some rteviews I have read. Yesterday, when I tried to use my unit I could never get it to "sync". I had both probes in the correct inputs. I bought new/fresh batteries (installed them). I turned on the receiver & then (about 3-4 secs later) turned on the transmitter. Unlike some reviews I had seen with video instructions that almose immediately both units started to display "room temp", mine had the --- display & then went to the HHH display. I never saw that satellite icon I am told I should see. This is new out of the box. I read in the Owners Instructions that came with my new unit that the HHH was a sign that the probe was bad. Well, both the meat & BBQ probes read HHH. I tried to make the unit work several times. In fact I left both units on with the HHH display for about 15 mins hoping that it would work. I was a little worried when I first opened the box the way the probes were packaged. I was worried beacuse of all that I had read about being careful not to pinch the wires (among other cautions mentioned). I could see flat spots in both probe wires.
I really want to use this product. Is there a way I can get a new meat probe & a new BBQ temp probe? I really hope that Maverick can help me. Thank you for your time.
I really like what I have read about the ET-732 and want to keep it & use it. So I guess I'll have to see what Maverick replies with. Again as I stated to Maverick, I was a little concerned about the probe wires when I opened the box. The flat spots in both probe wires.
