Our Acurite 00436 has worked well for the last 2.5 years.  Now it is reporting 158 degrees and 99% with a 199 degrees heat index.  I have followed all the instructions, ie, remove batteries, reset, etc., but nothing seems to have changed.  Suggestions?

Hello West,

We are sorry to hear your unit is not functioning. Please verify you are using a high quality standard alkaline battery and try the troubleshooting directions listed below. If this does not correct the issue, you would need a new outdoor sensor. Thank you.
Hard reset:
- Bring both units side by side and remove all batteries, unplug display if it has an ac adapter
- Change the ABC Switch to a different setting and ensure that both are on the same setting. example - If on A, move both to C
- Place batteries into the outdoor sensor first
- Place batteries into display
- Allow units to sit side by side until they connect.
