The station worked perfectly fine for 4 months and then suddenly lost a connection to outdoor sensor ( we noticed it was showing the same temp and humidity for more then 24 hrs). I changed the batteries and did a hard restart a couple of times with no luck.

Hello Iryna,

If you have tried the steps below and the issue continues, we would recommend replacing the sensor.  Please let us know if the issue continues. 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, 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.

Thank you Rachell, I tried the above suggestion with a new generic brand batteries, it didn't work. I'll get one of the recommended battery brands and try it again. Will let you know if it works.
