  • Updated 2 weeks ago
I just installed new batteries in my Acurite Model 00609SBDIA2  and in my Sensor Model 00609A1TX. I installed batteries first in my sensor and saw the red light blink, then installed batteries in my thermometer and my thermometer wont stop blinking. The entire screen is blinking. I dont know what to do next? Please help. Thanks

Hello Douglas,

Please verify you are using the battery recommendations and try the troubleshooting steps listed below. Please let us know if the issue continues. Thank you.
Batteries:

•Verify you are using fresh alkaline batteries or lithium batteries (when temperature is below -4°F/-20°C) 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 outdoor sensor first
- Place batteries into display
- Allow units to sit side by side until they connect.
