How to Use the Wireless Remote and Meat Probe in My KitchenAid Oven

Install the Batteries

There is a strip under the battery cover to prevent battery drain in shipping. Please remove the strip before continuing with these instructions (you may need to remove the battery compartment to avoid breaking the strip). 

  1. Remove the battery cover on the back of the thermometer. 
  2. Insert 4 AAA 1.5 V batteries as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and -).
  3. Replace the battery cover.

To preserve the batteries, turn both units ON when in use and OFF when not in use. If readings grow dim or irregular, the batteries may need to be replaced.
