Hi folks
New to the forum. I just bought a Ranger and planning my first cook tonight, a sirloin pork roast.
Before hand I fired it up and seasoned it by setting the temp to 450. It worked well and I shut it down going through the proper shutdown sequence.
I wanted to test the meat probe so I fire it up today to 200 deg. Once it got to 200 deg I inserted the meat probe into the jack and pressed the center button and nothing happened. Its suppose to read the probe temp, but nothing changed, the display just showed the grill temp. I tried it several times and same thing, the display continues to show the grill temp but not the probe temp which is at a much lower temp since it was not inside the grill.
Any suggestions?

WELCOME....

maybe stick the probe into the rubber grommet but just stick it in till you get to the curved part and stop... fire up the grill and see if it works at a higher temp...

if not CALL Traeger

Just a thought, double check that you are fully inserting the plug. Maybe it's stiff at first, firmly insert.

Otherwise it's a call to service.
