I have received an AcuRite 5-in-1 Pro+ Weather Sensor and Display as a Christmas Gift. The display has dashes for: outdoor temperature and Humidity and wind speed. I have called three times for technical assistance and all three times I did not speak with a human at the company. I am very disappointed with the customer service. Does anyone know how to reach a representative to speak with about the issues I am experiencing?
What are their hours of operation?
I have brought the sensor in the house and put next to display. I have powered up the unit in the order you suggest for each channel. When I changed the channels I completely turned power off (removed batteries from both 5-in-1 Sensor & Display and unplugged power for Display). I suspect a defective unit, but do not know if it is Sensor or Display. How do I go about returning it?

We are sorry to hear you had a hard time reaching us. We would be more than happy to assist you with your station. Has the station always showed dashes or at some point did you get an outdoor reading? Please try the hard reset steps below in the order they are listed.
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.
If you are following the battery guidelines perform the hard reset steps below:
1.Bring both the sensor and display unit indoors and position them side by side.
2.Remove all batteries from the sensor.
3.Remove all power from the display unit including the adapter (if applicable)
4.Wait 1 minute to ensure that any remaining battery power has discharged from both units.
5.Inside each battery compartment you'll find an A-B-C switch, change the channel to the next setting making sure they both match.
6.Reinstall batteries in outdoor sensor first.
7.Reinstall batteries (and/or connect AC adapter) in display last.
8.Let units sit within a couple feet of each other for 3 minutes to ensure a wireless signal is received.
*The display should receive the signal within several minutes.
9.After a connection has been established you may place the sensor outdoors.
*If the signal connection fails after the units are separated try a new location for the display unit, the sensor or both.
If this does not correct the issue please let us know.
