One probe is bad or off - switch ports and see if temps switch.

I just did the meat probe drops down to 34-36 when I plug it into the grate port. But when I plug it into the food port I can't get under 41.

Is the cup filled with ice then topped off with water, your not touching the sides with probe, stirring?

Could be a bad port, try leaving them plugged in and in the water for 5 minutes. Sometimes there is a response delay.

Then do the same in boiling water.

Are you using crushed ice because that could cause Variables as well.

I left both in the ice water for a while same thing I will try boiling water today. I would think both probes should at least be within a degree or 2

I've been fooling with this as I calibrate my Maverick temperature probes so I can take readings using an Arduino. I haven't gotten mine to read below 34°F using ice cubes in an ice water bath. An insulated cup might help. I was using a pyrex sauce pan. Crushed ice would also help, but my attempts at such using a meat tenderizer on a cutting board did not go well. Use as much ice as possible with just enough water to cover. Stir vigorously.

If you have an ET-732 you can swap probes. Can't do that with the ET-73 as the probes are different.

Switch ports or try boiling water.
that should get you pretty close to 212 degrees depending on elevation.
