I recently purchased the 5 in 1 sensor 06016 and 06004. The display 06016 keeps resetting date and time. Even have trouble setting date and time because it resets before completed. Called customer service sent a new power supply. Still have the same problem.

Sounds like it is a chip problem.  Try removing the power source.  Then all batteries.  Wait a minute and put in batteries ONLY and try setting it up and see what happens.  If still won't set, then send it back for repair.

Hello Mike,

Please try a factory reset on your display.


Please verify that you are using a name brand (Rayovac or Energizer) standardalkaline batteries in the display unit. We do not recommend using anything thatis heavy duty, rechargeable, store brand or Lithium inside of the display.

- Remove all power, AC adapter and batteries, from the display unit.
- Press and hold down the pin hole reset button, located in the batterycompartment, for 20 seconds.
- Plug back into AC power and insert recommended batteries.
- Press and hold down the pin hole reset button for an additional 20seconds.
- Verify that the unit has powered on and once connection has been made,attempt to set time and date.
