There does not appear to be any breaks or tears in the probe wire. The wire seems to be pushed in the probe correctly.
Anyone ever had this problem before or know how to fix it? Thanks in advance.
By "meat" probe you're talking about the FOOD probe? Was it reading 100° during your calibration tests? Were you given a gift receipt? Do you know if it was an online purchase? You or the person who gave it to you can contact the retailer to authorize an exchange or a refund. I'd contact them before getting in touch with Maverick.
I've owned the ET-733 for over 3 years and never had that problem. Sometimes lemons leave those Chinese factory production lines.
