Wind Speed not working

  • 2
  • Problem
  • Updated 2 years ago
Last week I put up my new 5-in1 Weather Sensor (Model 06004RM/VN1TXC). Everything has been working fine until today. We are having rain and high winds probably 15mph sustained but the Display (06016RM) is showing a wind speed of 0. The wind speed anemometer is spinning very fast, so I am not sure what to do. Temp, rain, wind direction, pressure all seem to be functioning correctly just no wind speed showing.

Does anyone have any input as to what is going on?

Dear Robert,

The following steps should help to resolve any issues you have been experiencing with your unit.

Before proceeding with the reset, please check your batteries. We recommend that the batteries meet the following criteria:

• Verify you are using standard alkaline batteries such as Rayovac or Energizer. Lithium batteries can be used in the outdoor sensor if you are in a location that will frequently see temperatures below -4oF/-20oC. (Rechargeable batteries, as well as batteries that indicate a heavy-duty quality are not recommended, and may cause irregularities.)
• Verify that you are using a fresh set of batteries. The battery expiration date should be at least 6 years out. Batteries can lose 3% of their power or more every year in storage.

1. Bring both the sensor and display unit indoors and position them side by side.

2. Remove all batteries from both the sensor and the display unit. (If the display has an AC adapter, please unplug this, as well, to completely power down the unit.)

3. Locate the A-B-C ID switch inside each battery compartment. Make sure that the two parts are set to the same position. Please change both parts to the next available letter on the ID switch, as this can help to reset the unit. (Inside the battery compartment, you will see a small, white sticker with a 4-digit number. Please let us know this number.)

4. Reinstall batteries in outdoor sensor first.

5. Reinstall batteries (and/or reconnect AC adapter) to the display last.

6. Let both sensor and display sit side by side to establish connection. (Leaving the devices side by side for 30 minutes will allow you to verify accuracy by comparing the indoor and outdoor readings shown on the display. For accuracy standards, please visit
7. After a connection has been established, the sensor can be placed outdoors.

If you should require further assistance, please contact AcuRite Customer Support at 877-221-1252.

I am following your instructions above but for now here is the 4 digit number - 4114 in the Sensor and 4815 in the display. More to come and thank you so far.
