Model 75324 Timex Atomic Clock with indoor/outdoor temperature, calendar and moon phase

  • Updated 4 days ago
Outdoor sensor has never synched with the clock from the beginning.  New batteries were changed with no change in symptoms.  The red light flashes but no indication on the clock.  The manual reference:
Inside the battery compartments of both units, you’ll find an
ABC Switch. This switch allows you to toggle between the 3 channels to nd that provides optimum reception. 

There are no such switches in the battery compartments of either the clock or the sensor.  The clock is most likely out of warranty at this point.  My question is, if I order a replacement tower sensor, Model #: 00606TX, will that resolve my issue or is there another avenue to approach in order to resolve this long standing issue.

Danny Acurite is closed for the holiday until the 9th. I don't know about the manual you have but this one makes no mention of the ABC switches  https://www.acurite.com/media/manuals/75324T-instructions.pdf. On a lot of these units the order that you start them matters.

Ledrak, Actually it does under the Troubleshooting section: Poor Outdoor Sensor Reception (No bars).
This clock comes equipped with 3 RF signal channels. Inside the battery compartments of both units, you’ll find an ABC Switch. This switch allows you to toggle between the 3 channels to find that provides optimum reception.

I have followed the suggested start up sequence.

I see what you are talking about but that is just a miss print. A lot of Acurite unit use ABC switches in their sensors and displays this one does not.  Like you said you don't see any switches.

You will see a lot of their directions are cut and paste and that works most of the time for their equipment but when you have one of the systems that don't fit that mold you have to use your own logic. Wish I could have been more help.
