Changing Batteries on Taylor Thermometer?
Has anyone successfully changed a battery on one of these?
I ordered one of these when it was the select, and I just opened it up to give it a try this morning only to find that it would not turn on. I suspect its batteries have given out. I tried to follow the instructions on how to open it up, and I’m pretty sure I did it wrong and may even have broken it :-(. I’m not in front of the booklet now, but the very first instruction said something like remove the backing from the device. I tried to do that and the silver part came off, revealing what looked like dried glue, so I’m guessing that wasn’t the part that was supposed to come off. But I didn’t see any other seams. I also took the little side pieces off and had a terrible time getting them back in once I discovered that taking them off wasn’t helping to open the thermometer.
Any ideas welcome!
Pics or model number? Taylor makes several different thermometer models…
Yep, that’s it — though the one I had was silver and black rather than all silver.
Duh, Steepster Select – I missed that on the first read-through. Sorry for not being more helpful – I have a simpler Taylor thermometer with a much simpler battery compartment. Couldn’t find much besides the manual online, and it sounds like you have that. :( Good luck
I bought one from 52teas a few days before it was the select and it’s also not working. I haven’t tried changing the batteries yet, though. I’m pretty bummed.
I figured out how to get the backing off, but my smallest screwdriver is too big to unscrew the screw (step 2). So I’m stuck for now as well…
