I have reset my model 00604 (pushed a paper clip end into the reset hole) after having changed the batteries.  Now it just blinks, makes a clicking noise and does not reset the time nor temp. Suggestions please

Hello Steve,

Please follow the battery recommendations and the troubleshooting listed below.  If you continue to have this issue please contact AcuRite Customer Support at 877-221-1252.  Thank you and have a great day!

Batteries:
•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.

Hard reset:
- Bring both units side by side and remove all batteries
- Place batteries into the main unit
- Place batteries into the sensor
- Allow units to sit side by side until they connect.

Order of battery placement given here is opposite from installation instructions and all other instructions I've found on this forum.

Hello Piloto,

We apologize, depending on which sensor you have would depend on which order the batteries should be installed.  If you have the small squared sensor then the batteries should be installed in the display first.  If you have the tall skinny tower sensor, the batteries should be installed into the sensor first.  Thank you for pointing this out to us.  Have a great day!
