I pickup a Aldi digital thermometer the other day have it has lasted one cook. Now its not showing the current (meat) temp.
I am guessing that its the probe that has failed. At this point I have to say the Aldi claim warranty process was painless.
A short phone call, provided the main details and was told I should receive a replacement unit within 7 days.
The digital thermometer has a 3 year warranty so how bad could it be?

I was wondering it the probes are interchangeable between difference brand thermometers.
There are some cheap probes on ebay for around $5 which look the same.
2.5mm mono plug on the end which I guess is a basic thyristor.

Has anyone here experimented with this ?

if you are ok at soldering its easy enough to put a K type plug onto the aldi one and then you can just buy ebay probes nice and cheap

Sound like the bees knees there Beaver.

Well that was fast, received deliver of the replacement Aldi wireless digital thermometer by courier this morning.
Did some testing of the faulty probe and the replacement. Both found to be getting a reading of 170.5K (room temp) - 95K ohms (hot water).
Turned out to be the send unit that was not working, gave it a good slap and now I have two working wireless digital thermometer (well for the time being anyway).
