My 5 in 1 weather station is sometimes reporting erratic temperature readings from -50 degrees to 132 degrees.  It seems to happen many at night.  Other times it work properly. Fresh batteries in November of 2017.

It's about 3 or 4 years old, I replace the top half in the fall of 2017 because the  anemometer stopped working.

The temp humidity sensor board is gone. It is a common failure in older 5 in 1's. Some models around that age started to have a replacable board for around $10. If you take the cover off, that board sits right above the airway vent from the bottom. If it has a plug assembly, it's replacable. If it's soldered, time for a new 5 in 1 whole unit.

Hello Dennis,

What is the model number of your sensor? The board is compatible with specific model sensors. Once we verify the model number we can let you know if that will work with your sensor.

I won't know that until I can get on my roof it's mounted to a mast and I can't get up there until the weather warms up.
