Dome Temp Gauge toast

edited March 2012 in EggHead Forum
Only had my egg for three months, used approx twice a week.
Yesterday I was cooking some hamburgers the vent open and no DW, when I noticed the temp gauge was showing 300.
The fire was nice and glowing and the burgers were great.
This morning I noticed the gauge still said 300, took it out of the lid and sure enough the gauge is toast.
If you tap the gauge the needle will move easily.

Where can I get a better replacement...

Thanks in advance guys.

    You may want to check with your dealer.  After only 3 months, he may give you a replacement.

    Tel-Trues are what I replaced mine with, like Choke On Smoke said, BGE should replace yours.

    What's the deal with the Tel-tru's? I just re-calibrated my original BGE thermometer this morning. Do the Tel-Tru's give a more accurate reader?

    The newer BGE thermometers are made by Tel-True, I had the older ones, they just didn't last.
