I forgot to mention that I purchased the upgrade with two solar panels. Could I have done anything while installing it to interfere with the transmission of wind speed?

Did you fully seat the 3 clam shell pieces?
The wind cups  have a magnet that moves, but the reed switch is in the base.
The new part needs to be fully seated on the top cover. then the lower module extends into the pocket near the fan when properly fitted.
You might disassemble, and see if the shaft assembly near the fan has been damaged.

Hello Jim1967,

Are you now getting a wind speed or is it still showing 0?
