My 00799 is inaccurate. Aprox 12 degrees displays above other temp readers. Can I calibrate it or is the battery possibly bad just out of box?

Hello Steve,

What are you comparing the readings to? It is important to find out the accuracy standard of the product you are comparing it to. You want to compare digital to digital and analog to analog. Our accuracy standard is +/-2 degrees. You want to let the product you are comparing to and the thermometer sit together for 30 minutes without touching them. After the 30 minutes compare the readings. Please let us know if there is anything further we can assist you with.
