Don't know if this will help but if using in a smoker a lot of times humidity is the cause of failure. I have found laying a potato on a top rack of the oven. Then plugging probes into potato from the bottom. Then turn oven to 250-300 and watch your maverick. After it climbs to around 300 or so it will start dropping. The heat evaporates the moisture. Then coat the area that the probe and wire meet with red permatex high heat silicon RTV. To prevent it fro. Happening again.
