Changing battery on thermometer.
« on: April 29, 2017, 04:16:31 PM »
I have a basic digital thermometer and the battery finally died. I was able to get the battery out but cannot get it back in. There is a rubber piece that is connected to the battery tray to keep it water tight. It can't get it all back in together. I feel extremely dumb but does anyone have any tips?

It's hard to say without knowing the exact thermo, but I'll be honest, Chris - as important as it is to the process, I just replace. I love the Thermoworks RTC 600C (same company that makes the Thermopen, only cheaper). Less than $20 on Amazon. I've been through a couple of them in the last  years. Just my $0.02. .

Thanks Jon! Just purchased a replacement on Amazon that takes one aaa battery which should simplify matters in the future.
