Is my dome thermometer busted??

Did high heat steaks last night after an 8 hour salmon smoke.. I noticed, as the Egg was coming up to temperature and I closed the lid that my dome thermometer was acting weird. It went up to like 350 and then dropped down, through the 0 mark and then all the way "down" to 600.. After that it went up again to 300 and back..

Never seen anything like it!?!  I assume a spring or something snapped and i need to get a new thermometer?

    I think I would go ahead and pull it and calibrate. That way you will know for sure.
