Amerique probe- solution for broken plug

Hi all- like (possibly) everyone else owning an Amerique, I found out that the plug connector on the meat temp probe was its Achilles Heel. After buying 2 new probes (and they ain't cheap), I decided to see if I could just fix it. Voila!

The plug is a Switchcraft EN3C2M16X  This one is a crimp type. They also make a solder type. Mine is also a slip-on outer ring as opposed to the screw-on that came with. I don't see where the screw-on is offered. Here is the link: https://www.alliedelec.com/swi...-en3c2m16x/70214331/

I believe that Mouser and DigiKey carry these also.

I hope this works for you also.

Thanks much - no need yet for me, 5 years so far, but this is valuable info! The probes are quite expensive from CS. I know because I expect to have to replace mine soon because the insulation has melted where the probe wire contacts the vent hole.
