Question about Heating & Cooling

Tthe face screen on my soleus 131 small watch for women went blank. I can.t find a repair shop to replace the battery. Radio Shack sells the battery but, I can't get into the watch to replace it.

Is there a manuel to show how to replace the battery in a Soleus 131 small women's watch? I can't find a shop to replace it. Radio Shack near me sells the battery, but, don't put them in. I took out the 4 screws but the band don't come off. How do I replace the battery? watch was bought September 2011

Most larger department store jewelry counter personnel will change a watch battery for you for little or no cost - if you buy the battery from them. Stores like Batteries + also offer this service for a small fee. Unless someone here has the same watch and can tell you exactly how it is done, my suggestion will probably be your best bet.

    I located and looked at the manual to see if there were battery replacement instructions for you to follow, but there were none. I neglected to mention that going back to the store where purchased might be you best bet for watch / battery replacement. Good luck!

    Thanks Steve, I ordered from Eastbay online. They told me to find a Soleus Repair shop, which I couldn't find. I may have lucked out, Sports Chalet in my area said they can order a battery and maybe replace it. I have to go into the store. They sell the product. All Sports Chalet do not sell the product. The third one I called, sold the product.

    Hi Mary,

    I'm glad to see that it looks like you found a place to replace the battery. Hopefully, this new one will last longer than the original. I'd hold on to the receipt just in case tho!

    Hello again, Steve, Thanks for your very helpful ideas. I found a watch repair shop that replaced the battery for me. Very cheap, only $10. He was surprised the battery went out so fast. It was suppose to last two years.

    Mary -

    That's great! I'm glad I was able to help - good luck with the new battery!

SOURCE: Soleus LX-140 leaking problem

I also have the same problem with my PE3, EXACTLY. I have installed a catch pan under the unit after drying out my carpet and am using the unit, but I have to empty the pan every few days. I suspect there is a connection problem allowing water to drain directly instead of being discharged out the venting. SOLEUS seems quite difficult to reach, but I am persistent and will find the answer. Good to know the problem is out there yet Soleus is not fessing up.

You need to get the condensate water to drain outside the building.

SOURCE: same problem with the leaking from the base of the soleus unit

There is nothing wrong with the unit, you just are in a humid area, the water is from the air.

The water is being pulled from the air, that is part of how it cools, by condensing water.

Some units have hose fittings that can be hooked up to normal garden hoses and routed outside.

You could also install something like that yourself.

Your battery may indeed be dead. Watches sometimes sit on store shelves for months and even years before you get them. If you have a stuck button it may be the light button and may have prematurely drained your battery. Either way a watchmaker would be able to determine the problem.

My watch was on when i opened the box, but i hit a few buttons on the side and the screen went blank. trying to turn it on, but don't know how. does it need charging or something? confused.

Most likely you jostled the battery loose or the battery coincidentally ran out.
Take it to a repair shop to get a new battery. If you want to try and do it yourself, you can. But be prepared -- there are lots of small parts and small screws you may have to deal with.
