Change the batteries in the sensor and before you do bring it in and place it next to the display.  If that doesn't work, you may have to reset the display and see if it changes.

Reset didn't work either.  We haven't had any bad other than a little rain.  Is there a chance that the sensor received to much rain?

Sounds like the sensor has gone bad.  If it is under warranty they will probably get you a new one.  Try to place sensors so they don't get wet.

Hello Jim,

The model number listed is 00754, this model does not measure rain. Was the sensor left in an area where it could get wet?

Yes, but not drenched. It was in a are were it got wet, but not for the purpose of measuring the rain fall.

Hello Jim,

We would recommend that you open up the battery compartment of the sensor and let it dry out. This would kind of mimic what you would do if you were to drop your cell phone in water. After it is dry go ahead and put the batteries back in, and see if the red light on the sensor flashes. It should flash every 30-60 seconds. If it does not flash, then we would recommend trying fresh batteries. If the fresh batteries don't correct the issue, we would recommend replacing the sensor. We have attached the link to the replacement sensor.

I am having a similar problem. I made sure my unit was dry and stuck it in the freezer. It took a few minutes but it did finally start to go down.

Model# 01036A1
I live in the Houston Area and the unit survived Harvey so good job Acurite. Like everything else around here, we received 20+ inches over several days. The outdoor temp and humidity readings were stuck. Temp was reading 96F and the Humidity was 99%. The temp outside should have been in the 80's. I brought the unit inside and no change in Temp or Humidity, so I put the unit in the freezer and after a few minutes the temp started to decrease. The trending arrow was still pointing up even though the temp was decreasing.When the temp got to 40F the arrow shifted to a down ward trend. I let it sit in the freezer for about 30 minutes then pulled it out and let it come back to room temperature. Today It has stayed inside and I know only have a 6-degree temperature delta between the indoor and outdoor reading with the outdoor unit being inside. Last night it was a 15-degree delta. Humidity is still reading 99% Indoor it should be 36%.

Hi Scott,

Please verify you are using a high quality standard alkaline battery and try the troubleshooting directions listed below.

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.

Batteries are new Duracell Ultra. Followed the directions above. Indoor and outdoor unit are side by side inside my house. I still have a 7 degree delta between the indoor and out door unit. the out door unit is reading higher than the indoor unit.  outside humidity is still reading 99%.

Can I purchase a replacement temp humidity sensor for the outside unit?

Hello Scott,

What is the model number of the sensor itself? This should be listed on the bottom of the sensor next to the battery compartment. Thank you.

Hello Scott,

 Your sensor is compatible with the replacement temperature and humidity sensor module.

I received my PRO+ Upgrade for the 5-in-1 Weather Sensor and Replacement Temperature and Humidity Sensor for Compatible* 5-in-1 Sensors. Install for both items was very easy in fact it took me longer to find my screwdriver than it took to install the parts. everything seems to be working OK. Thanks for your help

Hello Scott,

We are happy you are showing accurate readings. The part that we were referring to was the temperature and humidity sensor board.  The wind cup assembly should not correct a humidity reading of 99%.  I have added a link below for your convenience. Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you.

Hello Jim,

What is the model number of the sensor and displays?  You should be able to, however some of our thermometers if you have batteries in 2 sensors, and they are the same model number it can cause interference. If you have multiple sensors and they have an A-B-C channel then you would switch the sensor you want to pair with multiple displays to the same A-B-C channel.
