thermometer question

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by frank621, Aug 1, 2008.

  1. i currently have two 8lb pork shoulders on my smoker, overnight so they are ready first thing in the morning. I am using a taylor 1470 for the first time. on the read out it shows the "thermo temp" as "LO" instead of an actual number. is this normal?
    i have looked online everywhere i can think of to find troubleshooting or a FAQ for the Taylor thermometers but have found nothing. any help is always appreciated!!
     
  2. My digital remote isn't a Taylor, but it will display "Lo" if plug on the probe pulls out or gets moisture on it. All I have had to do is unplug it wipe it off and plug it back in. If not that you may have pinched the probe cable and broken a conducter in the cable.

    I have 2 Taylor 1470s (love them by the way) and no this is not normal. Mine have done that from time to time and what I do is turn the thermo off, unplug the probe, make sure the connector is clean, plug it back in and turn the thermo back on. Pretty much what AWilliams said. [​IMG]

    Hope this works for you.

    You might want to try switching fresh batteries.
