STUCK DISPLAY READINGS

01500 display readings are stuck for RH and dewpoint -  all others are reading normally (or in the case of wind, consistently too low).  RH is a constant 99% and dewpoint is always the same as outdoor temp.  Can I assume the remedy for this is a reset?  Take down outdoor unit (ugh - it's on a tall pole), make sure it's clean and take out batteries. Remove batteries and power from indoor readout.  Wait a couple of minutes, then restore batteries to sensor, then readout and wait for them to communicate.  What about the hard reset button -- press that, too as part of the process???

An update to my post above. First, the model is actually 01015 (not 01500).  More important is how I apparently resolved the problem using a "shortcut" reset.  Too lazy to take the outdoor sensor unit down and bring it next to the display, I tried resetting just the indoor unit and it seems to have been a successful maneuver.  Pulled the batteries and power for two minutes or so and hit the reset all button which, of course, cleared all the readings, rain accumulation, date, time.  When I restored batteries and power, the problem of stuck RH/dewpoint remained and that's when I posted to get clarification of the reset process (which ought to be outlined in the otherwise good users manual).  

But half an hour or so later, I looked at the unit again and found the readings had been corrected.  So, for those in the same position (and I assume this may be true for other model displays), try a half-reset on just the display to save the effort of perhaps climbing on the roof or wherever you have mounted the outdoor sensor.  Wait a bit as I did and if it does not work, then you can do the whole process.  

The unit is now in forecast learning mode as if it was new out of the box but that happens with any reset.  

I'll post this under a separate thread, such as abbreviated reset steps.
