01033 - Barometer & Trend Indicator not displaying

Re: AcuRite 01033 Weather Forecaster - About 4 weeks ago I replaced the batteries in both the base station and remote.  At that time, the barometer reading and trend indicator did not show up but I was not too concerned as I knew to wait for the 14 day "future forecast" period to pass.  Well, now about 4 weeks after the new batteries, the barometer reading & trend still have yet to make an appearance (and the weather forecast remains "mostly sunny.")  Yesterday, I took the batteries out of both the base and remote and left them out for around two hours.  Reinserted the batteries in both within 15 seconds of each other.  Still no barometer/trend indicator.  Any suggestions or do I have a faulty 01033 (it's past the warranty period.)?  Thanks.

Hi Paul,

The barometric pressure should appear immediately upon power-up; if that is not happening, please press the pinhole RESET on the back of the unit.  Also ensure you are using good quality name-brand alkaline batteries such as Rayovac or Energizer.  Let us know if you need further assistance.  Have a great day!

Kevin - Thank you for the quick response back.  Yep, I tried the "pinhole RESET button" after I replaced the batteries the second time around.  I just tried the reset button again and still no barometer display.  At least I have the temp and humidity displays and that's OK for right now.  Again, thank you -

Hi Paul,

Sorry to hear that did not rectify the malfunction.  We still offer that model, however it is currently out of stock until January.  If you were to order a replacement, the current display you have would work with the new system, so you could still use it for the temperature and humidity readings to view them in a different location in your home. 

If we can be of further assistance, please let us know.  Have a great day!
