    Don't use the "meat probe" for the meat use it to monitor the smoker temp it is after all a thermometer and will work just fine. Personally I suspect that you might have a bad probe that's why I suggesting taking the probe out of the meat side and plugging it into the smoker temp side so you can see if that works if it does then you pretty much know it's a bad probe.

    You have to turn both units off... Now turn both units back on at the same time so they "Sync" together,,, this should get you a reading on the receiver...

    Ok I didn't know that in that case i would change the batteries in the receiver as you know you can get a bad battery straight out of a new package once in awhile. If that doesn't help then I would contact either Maverick or the place I bought it depending on how long I've had it. I have an older Maverick and I have to turn the receiver on before I turn on the base unit for it to pick up the signal and lock on.

    soxeboy , it's not really necessary to turn on both units "exactly" at the same time , just turn on the remote receiver first

    uhmgood  YOUR EXACTLY RIGHT   but when i read the instructions  a little more receiver has to be turned on in a certain time frame JCKTANIS  popping the top right now
     
  12. I received my third ET-732 yesterday and during the first run and the food temp indicated HHH and LLL and sometimes a number like 342.

    I sent it back.

    Not the first time I have had a problem with this product.

    I've had bad probes out of the box with 2 of the 3 therms I bought from them. Wish they would get them figured out, probes are simple electrical pieces. Their customer service is very good though, thankfully.
     
  14. I used my maverick for the first time yesterday and 1/2 the time it transmitted just fine and half the time it didn't. The transmitter works fine but the receiver is sketchy.

    732 OR 73? I have that problem with my 73. 732 seems to be fine.
     
  16. 73

    The 732 fixes that issue, just too bad it's twice as much.
     
  18. It is either bad probes or sometimes it needs to be shut off and turned on again. Low batteries can have issues like this too. That has been my experience...good luck...[​IMG]
