Abstract Self-adjusting apparatus for sensing the temperature of a body that is subject to displacement. An elongated probe having an electrical sensing element at its distal end is slidably contained in a hole passing through a threaded housing. A close running fit is provided between the housing and the probe so that it can move only axially in the hole. A stop is mounted on the probe between the bottom wall of the housing and the distal end of the probe. A spring is coiled about the probe so that it acts to bias the probe into contact with the body when the housing is threaded into a support member.
