Weird temperature readings

The temperature went from -184°C to 1379°C. Do you know what could have caused that?

These extreme temperature readings typically come from a damaged thermocouple, causing the measurements to be ‘faulty’, or if the thermocouple has an electrical connection e.g. touches the rebars or other metals. You can check at your next opportunity by inserting a new cable into the device and check that it registers ‘normal’ temperatures.
