I've had a new 640 for about 3 months. I have read many posts about people questioning the temp in the pit is different than the readout. Some post think its the probe that is bad, others the firmware. How can you tell if you have a problem or need to update the firmware?

If you have a YS640 with the thermocouple on the hopper wall, the latest firmware is U29.

Silly question but how do you see what version of firmware you have. Have a YS640 that I bought last month.

Send an email to Yoder specifying your build date and serial number. If possible on your unit you pay and they send you a unit to do it. You have to open the hopper wall and connect a box and it will do it. Then you send the box back.
