    Looking for TP-08 probe custom settings

    I sent an email to the company. I'll hit you up when they have the info! Thanks I gave a shot with the iGrill preset and it was the closest I could get to the thermapen I have. I'll try a bowl of ice water for precision!

    Looking for TP-08 probe custom settings

    I'm using the probes from my TP-08 thermometer and they are a bit off. Is someone using them with custom settings? I have no idea how to figure out the settings myself. Might have to contact the company I guess

    PitDroid: An Android app for your HeaterMeter

    I had my first run with my HM and pit droid today. It worked for 5 minutes and now nothing shows up. Is there anything I should look for to fix this?

    Elbow in conduit going to the smoker

    Hi, I was looking at the setup of the people in here and I was wondering if I should add a curve to the attachment of my HM? Would it prevent embers (log burner here) to reach the fan? Ps. Looking for a good way to attach my damper to a firebox! Will give the dog bowl a try, but if someone...

    Servo troubleshoot

    The servo I was using was a MG90d (ordered from digikey, it said it was a mg90s, but they shipped the d) I bought a MG90S at the shop near my place and it was moving randomly. I installed the capacitor and now it's working great! Only problem is I think it's a counterfeit because it doesn't...

    I'll try a different mg90 today and the bc337/10k booster. Update later today...

    470uf 35V did not make any difference! I'll go to the regular shop when it opens tomorrow and get 47uf and 100uf 10V and 25V. If it doesn't work I'll try Ralph booster!

    All I could find was 470uf 35V. I'll give it a try

    Thanks for all the help Bryan and Ralph! Very happy that everything is sorting out. The servo is shaky a bit, moving 1 degree and making a ticking sound like it wants to move (the screw is not too tight)... Is this what could fix it?

    Servo troubleshoot

    Success Update! Everything is working right now! I jumped wired from SVO to Q5. The weird thing is that the left pin on Q5 is 0.70V @100% middle is at 3.28V and right pin at 0.50V. The 1k resistor goes from 5V to 0.70V to Q5... is that normal? Also, the servo is making clicking noises when...

    I'll try to clean things up today. Thanks for the advices! I guess I could use a jump wire from SVO to Q5 bs170 right hole?

    Hope this will work! What should I use to clean the board? The way you say it sounds really easy, but I actually have no idea what I'm doing. I don't want to mess things up even more! Is there a little tutorial or guide I could refer to? Thanks!

    Servo troubleshoot

    I actually had a bad time with the bs170. I installed them reversed at first, so trying to take them out I burnt the board around them. That's why I replaced them! Kind of ashamed of what the board looks like right now :(, but I thought if everything was booting correctly it wasn't damaged. I...

    Servo troubleshoot

    yeah sorry I meant there's no scratches on the line from SVO to Q5... but I looked into it and I think I might have burnt the circuit from Q5 to SVO. I don't have any continuity from SVO to Q5... that might be the problem though

    Servo troubleshoot

    The bs170 seems to be the same, but with some different stuff written on it. I guess the pin out is the same. Not sure how I could test it out. I think we're onto something with my next post. Sounds like it could be from SVO to the right pin of bs170 Here's what I got: Left hole: 4.95V...

    Servo troubleshoot

    Ok, I just realized what you were refering to on your 2nd post when you said the SVO on the microcontroller. The SVO pin on the microcontroller @ 100% reads 0.37V. The right pin from the Q5 @ 100% reads 2.12V Middle @ 100% reads 3.70V Left @ 100% reads 5.60V I get 989 ohm when measuring the...

    Thanks for answering so quickly! Is the R21 the 1k Resistor next to the cat5 jack? Both ends read 5.20V on it. On the Q5 I get from left to right: 5.39V - 3.58V - 2.07V I guess that's the problem. Now I have no idea how to solve this... The power is first going through the Q5 and then going...
