BBQ/Oven Sensor Tips

  • If the AW131 or AW133 BBQ thermometer display is connected to the sensor but is providing an inaccurate temperature reading, that is an indication of a faulty probe and should be replaced. Shop BBQ Probes
  • Never place the sensor inside a BBQ/Oven. Only the probe and a portion of the cable connecting the probe to the sensor should be inside the BBQ/Oven.
  • Always verify that the battery indicator doesn't indicate that the batteries should be replaced prior to use.
  • Don't use rechargeable batteries.
  • Keep the main base unit away from other electrical devices that may cause interference.
  • Keep the sensor within range of the main unit (100 meters).
