If there is no wind and snow or ice accumulate on it ,then when the wind does pick up it won't tur due to snow accumulation or ice accumulationn. Also if you put oil on the shaft the freezing temps can cause the oil to thicken and stop the shaft from turning. Hope that helps

Hello Richard,

We would recommend lightly spraying the outside of the sensor and the wind cup shaft with WD40. This should help with the snow and ice accumulation. Thank you.
