Probe is better than the original
My thermometer kept registering HH. I couldn't find a new thermometer that I liked as well, so based on a recommendation on the web site, I ordered a new probe. The thermometer works just fine now.
I was having an issue with my thermometer. I would turn it on and it would just keep raising the temp even though there wasn't a heat source. I'd talked with CS about the problem but they weren't really sure where to go. Upon examination I notice a couple of spots where wewr was showing on the cable connecting to the probe. I figured for 5$ it was worth a gamble. One that paid out. Replacing had sove the issue, which seemed to be a short and my thermometer is working again
I ordered the Replacement Thermometer Probe 3168P for 03168 and it worked fine as a replacement for the 993STW1P.
I suppose the replacement probe works like the original. My problem is this item is for smokers/grills yet the original worked all of 5 minutes before the probe stopped working. The wire even with stainless still covering feels like it melted internally. I had a new thermometer that would not work. I am giving it another chance with these probes and in a day or two I will put it to the test again. If it quits this time I will return the product and the replacement probes.
