Maverick question

The barbecue probe is reading the temp, but the food probe is showing HHH on the lcd. This is brand new and first time use. Any help will be appreciated.


  • Is the probe plugged all the way into the transmitter?

    Have you recently overheated the food probe cable? 400*-500* ? They wont take it but one time. I fried my maverick food probe a year ago. I still use the smoker probe , but got a cheap one for food from wally world.
    Yes, this is the biggest one they make.

    I'm betting the probe is not pushed all the way in the transmitter. BTDT You get 3 H's when that happens

    Thanks for the advice and help! I unplugged the probe and inserted it again. I made sure it was pushed all the way in the transmitter, and it is working now. Temp is at 149 right now.
