HI Guys I have a 754W5 receiver and the 592TX transmitter. They worked great for about three months but now they are not working. I followed the steps including removing batteries and changing channels. Left them next to each other for a day now but no signal. Any thoughts?

Hello Tim,

We are sorry to hear you are having an issue with your weather station. Make sure you are following the battery guidelines below:

You want the display and sensor to be at least 3 feet from electronics such as televisions, microwaves, computers & radios. Follow the battery guidelines below:

•Verify you are using fresh alkaline batteries or lithium batteries (when temperature is below -4oF/-20oC) in sensor.

•Quality brand batteries are recommended, including Duracell, Rayovac, Energizer, or Kirkland.

•Verify batteries are fresh. The battery expiration date should be at least 6 years out. Batteries can lose 3% power or more every year in storage.

•Heavy duty, extra strength or generic / store brand batteries are not recommended for use with AcuRite products because they may cause performance irregularities due to the way these types of batteries disperse power. Each battery should not exceed 1.6 volts.

•Rechargeable batteries are not recommended for use with AcuRite products because they may cause performance irregularities due to the voltage instability of these types of batteries.

•Mixing different battery types (brands, old/new, etc.) is not recommended.

How long have you had the thermometer for? Are you seeing the red light flashing on the sensor? It should flash every 30-60 seconds.
