2.0 out of 5 starsCheap junk
ByG. Gutierrezon March 29, 2017
This thermometer worked well for the first 5 or 6 times we used it, then the readings started to go wacky on subsequent attempts, showing 20°F (-7°C) while switching it on in a room-temperature (72°F) kitchen, and a different value every time it was placed into the same roast. Now it just shows LL.L. Reading through these reviews, I can see that this device requires frequent cleaning. Sure enough, after a disassemble and wipe down, it seems to be reading correct ambient temperatures. But, is it and will it? I don't know. This thing is seriously cheap.

Customer Review 4.0 out of 5 starsGood thermometer with a little maintenance

Verified Purchase
I purchased the Weber 6492 in the middle of August 2014 and it has worked well up to this week when, as others have reported, the temperature reading starting jumping around and occasionally settled on a non-reading of "LL". I am not ******* my things because I want them to last. I treated this thermometer, in particular, as if it was as fragile as an egg. But four days before Christmas, with baking still to be done, it stopped functioning properly.

I didn't have the time or inclination to go out and buy another thermometer so I figured it was worth trying to change the battery, The battery is accessible by twisting the front part of the housing (the part with the buttons and LCD) counterclockwise in relation to the back.

As it turned out, the battery was fine but the contacts must have had a little oxidation that prevented the front part from communicating with the sensor. After gently cleaning the contacts with a soft piece of fabric, It works fine now.

Sounds like the regulator is faulty. Have you checked the jets and the venture for spider nests and egg sacks? Even stashes of mouse food :>)

If this is a new grill go back to where you brought it and ask for a replacement . Grill getting way to hot or you have a leak on the gas line behind the control knobs that is melting it .

you have to narrow down the problem.when you turn the propane on first at the tank (make sure lid is OPEN) and then turn on the burner control are you smelling gas ? If yes then its simply ignition (BBQ lighter to light manually) if no smell are you sure there is propane in the tank ? Can still feel like fuel inside when empty.if you smell gas but won t light check your venturi valves for spider nests,etc if it sat outside for the will stop the propane from coming thru the burner.Good luck (my money would be no fuel ) please let me know !
