    Battery Setup questions.

    I see the benefits of both setups. Kevin's is much more like what I currently have.. basically a battery pack that plugs directly into the heatermeter. I can recharge the AAs. I just didn't realize it only kicks out 500ma instead of 1 and that is causing me to not get full fan power. Tbh when I...

    Battery Setup questions.

    Hey All, I was intrigued by the blower issue that Kevin raised and Bryan helped out with and I realized that my battery pack setup was not working correctly not enough power from AAs so I am thinking of wanting to fix this while being as versatile as possible. Possible battery uses for...

    HeaterMeter 4.3 - Blower issues

    Hey thanks for bringing this up Kevin and thanks for the diagnostic Bryan. I had a similar thought after two cooks this week. Where my microdamper couldn't keep the temp up around 325 in my UDS. So I checked it out and was only getting 98 at "full power" but I was using a battery pack...

    Theory: Rasp Pi temp is interfering with TC probe

    Thanks Steve! Yeah so I read about that. Yesterday after I had my heatermeter really warmed up and outside in the heat only my TC probe was way high like 600 and then 400 then accurate at like 180 in my pit then 500 it bounced all around. This started about 30 minutes into the cook. I disabled...

    Theory: Rasp Pi temp is interfering with TC probe

    Theory: Rasp Pi temp is interfering with TC probe

    Hello All, I have a previous thread with help on my TC probe here: https://tvwbb.com/showthread.php?74951-Thermocouple-Works-on-RD3-but-not-on-main-board&p=823281 It seems to have resurfaced as I was seasoning a new UDS I built. After a couple of hours running HM and microdamper the TC went...

    Thermocouple Works on RD3 but not on main board

    Well hmph. I don't have much of an ability to fix these solder points nor replace the caps. I bought my board online and would most likely ruin it if I tried to solder it. It if was completely not working maybe I would attempt it but as it did work with the RD3 I am hesitant to do any solder...

    Thermocouple Works on RD3 but not on main board

    I think the 10n does have a bubble.. Is that a problem but I do think the light was causing a shadow for the other one. https://www.dropbox.com/s/dx625dx5x6o6l6c/IMG_20180729_090220.jpg?dl=0 I guess I will Google how to test a 10n capacitor? I am wondering what might have caused this.
