New Auber Gen 2 Probes/Sensors.
« on: March 02, 2021, 01:56:59 AM »
I was just finishing up a smoke last week when the controller started flashing the dreaded AH code on the wall mount temp probe side. Looked it up and it was high temp cutoff IIRC.I checked settings and the cutoff was set at 290* so I was reasonably sure that wasn't it. I plugged the meat temp probe in on that side and it worked so i started looking at the probe. Unscrewed the plug end and both of the solders had failed. The cord had never been yanked on or other wise beat up so I have no idea other than it was a pretty fragile setup.

The wires are so tiny I decided that I didn't even want to try to re-solder them. Received the Gen 2 probe/cable I ordered and it has braided SS covering rather than the cheap fragile looking stuff on the original. the plug looks a little heavier too. Hopefully it'll last longer, I think I only got a little better than a year on the other. They still have the Gen 1 probes listed and I almost ordered it before I saw these. They have a gen 2 meat probe linked at the bottom of the page.
ETA I see that they still have the teflon covering under the braided SS.

There have been some problems not just with the Auber units but also with the probe cables on cookshack and some remote therm probes.  Sometimes the sheathing, sometime a weak solder connection.  The wire as you have discovered are hair thin.

I bought a nice ThermoWorks meter and don't even use the one probe that hasn't failed on my 3DW.  The app is so janky that the less I have to use it and the controller, the better...
