I got my replacement Maverick ET-73 in the mail yesterday, and gave it a trial run.
100' Range?....ABSOLUTELY NO WAY!!!
I registered the units per instructions and placed (1) probe in ice water and the other on top my smoker. At 20' with the overhead garage door wide open, I got a good signal, but at 25', the signal was hit and miss. Walk forward a few feet and the temps were updated. I even walked to the end of the driveway, about 35' away, and my signal died.
This is my 2nd ET-73 and not happy with it's performance. It does not have enough power to shoot thru a steel skinned, foam filled garage door, and there is absolutely no way it can shoot thru the steel service door.
Customer service at Maverick was good, and they told me it should receive beyond it's 20' range I'm experiencing.
Am I the only one experiencing this short range?
Is there another remote thermometer that will actually shoot thru a wall and into the house?
