New Maverick ET732 user..weird issue

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
The BBQ probe seems fine, however the food probe is running about 120* high. It was doing just fine until it started raining. I moved the transmitter and it fell, losing both of the probes. When I hooked them back up the food had jumped from 151 to 200. I reset the transmitter and the receiver, twice. On the second time I removed the probes from the transmitter and reinserted them. The BBQ one held steady, however the food one went up even more. Now it's reading a temp of 244. I've taken the probe ouf of the meat and reinserted it in a different point to no avail.

Any idea what is causing this?

Um, maybe the rain or dropping it?

When it fell and yanked the wires out it could have damaged a wire or the fall could have damaged the unit. Plug the probes in the opposite ports and see what it reads. That will tell you if it's a probe wire or the unit.

I hope it's just being weird also. I always fear dropping mine and having to replace it.

OK, so I switched the probes around like Dave suggested and they did appear more normal. I switched them back, and not it appears to be fixed.

Thanks!

King.  Did you try unplugging it then taking the batteries out of both units for about 5 minutes?

Are you still under th 90 day warranty? I've heard Maverick is pretty generous with probe replacements.

It started working just fine after switching the probes around and back...
