Maverick ET-733

Follow Up II RE: Foul Up

First Image
Back in April, yes I did say April, I reported issues with my Maverick ET-733 where are the indoor receiver unit was blowing through batteries in under 1 to 2 weeks. At the time Maverick sent me a replacement receiver which exhibited the same problem. Then they sent me a new transmitter unit, which seems counterintuitive, and did not solve the problem. At that point I sent this unit back and asked him not to send me another replacement until he had time to adequately test said replacement in house to make sure was working. I followed up in July and there was still no solution. Where I have to other Maverick thermometers I was able to get by. About two weeks ago I spoke to the folks at Maverick and they finally had a solution to this mystery. This blog entry will be a quick follow-up attempting to explain what was going on and the solution. Read More...

Maverick ET-733 - Foul Up

First Image
This brief blog entry shall serve as a Follow Up to a problem (Foul Up) I encountered with my new Maverick ET-733 remote read thermometer which I REVIEWED in a Blog Entry earlier this year. I encountered a problem, which it seems like others are having, where the receiver unit runs down batteries even though it is turned off. Maverick took care of repairing it under warrantee so all is good there. But where the warrantee is 90 days I thought I would bring it up for folks who may not use the unit much. Maybe you are waiting for better weather, I don’t know. Bottom line: If you have one of these units, you might want to use it a few times to make sure you don’t have the problem. And if you do it will still be under warrantee when you discover it. Read More...

Maverick ET-733 First Impressions

First Image
This blog comes as a bit of a surprise to me. It is a review of the new Maverick ET-733 a new and improved version of the ET-732. It is the third generation model of a line which started with the ET-73, which was followed up by the second generation ET-732 several years ago. I bought my ET-72 in 2005 and my ET-732 in 2012. This model is the third generation model. I had been thinking of getting a second ET-732 for use with my second Big Green Egg, when I start seeing hints online of a new Maverick unit coming out soon. I decided to wait a while and sure enough the ET-733 was announced in late November. I just received my new unit in the mail and what follows are my initial impressions of the new unit and a description of the changes. Read More...
