Have used these for 2+ yrs with no complaints. We like them.

Pretty much the same here... I bought a small wired indoor/outdoor thermometer, double-side tape mounted it inside the fridge and ran the remote sensor into the freezer. I kept the wire flat and taped down with clear packing tape.

Did you connect the yellow and black wires to anything too? I'm just curious because I ordered this thermometer too and before I install it, I wanted to test it by running a battery to the red and black. The display lit up blue but the screen was blank? I made sure the protective cap was removed from the probe and still a blank screen. I have 3 thermometers and they're all blank?

The black wire to a - negative feed and the red + to a positive feed. That's it. The other wires are spare. IIRC I plugged the 2 together to feed the second one.
When I first turn them on it takes a half second to display. Here's a video of me turning them on/off. It was 80 here today so the fridge, since it was off, shows 77.

Thank you for replying and for posting the video.
I'm wondering if maybe I have a defective unit? Or maybe it won't operate just from a 9v battery? I think I'll connect it to the fridge wires and see what happens. I'm stumped.

9v battery? That's probably the problem. Hook it to a car battery to test it and I'm sure it will be fine.
