I have not replaced it, but i also have a thermometer that sits on the grate. I compare to the two readings to make sure they are in the same ballpark. I recalibrate my dome thermometer twice a year, usually when the weather changes.
if you have a newer bge thermometer then you dhouldnt have to change it. because the newer thermometers on the eggs and the one they send you when you buy a replacement is made by a company named tru tel. i replaced a thermometer several years ago with a tru tel and i replaced my second lardes thermpometer earlier this year. the tru tel thermometers don't have to be calibrated as often as the old ones. if you have an old one it will not say tru tel on it. and if dont say it then i would think about getting a new one to save yourself the hassel.

I bought mine in September and it says Tru Tel on it. Do I need to mess with it?

If you are NOT at sea level, you can google "Boiling point of water at different elevations"
I am at about 3900' above sea level, for me, water boils at about 206.
