Question about Oregon Scientific Wireless IndoorOutdoor Thermometer with Atomic Clock Sync

Open Question

Inaccurate temperature reading

The outside temperature reading on the sensor and the station is inaccurate. It reads -43ºF, when it should be around +70ºF. I already changed the batteries and resetted the unit. What else can be wrong? I bought this unit about 4 years go (is old), but both units are away from direct sunlight and/or rain.

SOURCE: I changed batteriers and now I can't get a reading

I believe they ask you to press the reset button on the main unit first, but that may not be your problem. Double check the batteries to make sure they are installed correctly. If one of the batteries in the outdoor sending unit is in backwards, it will not send the outdoor data. On the indoor unit, there is typically one battery that is used for receiving the signal from the outdoor unit. If all of the batteries are in correctly but that one, you will see the display and the indoor temperature information, but the outdoor information will not be displayed. Also, make sure the units are close enough to transmit.

SOURCE: I have a 433MHz cable

You have to push some buttons to tell the MAIN unit to scan, then put battery into the REMOTE, set channel, and hit reset through a little hole. And the MAIN should see it.

Error Code F8E5


F8E5 Exhaust air template detection failure 1. Press CANCEL - CANCEL - START, verify failure code, and then press CLOCK/OPTIONS to display the exhaust air temperature sensor reading. Verify the sensor temperature reading is at room temperature (typically 50?F to 90? [10?C to 32?C]) and verify failure code. If failure code matches complaint, continue to Step 2. 2. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power. 3. Disconnect sensor from ACU PCBA. 4. Measure HF NTC resistance between connector pins and confirm reading is between 9.5k??and 10.5k??at room temperature. If measurement is not correct, or if a short or open circuit is found, replace sensor. 5. Replace all parts and panels before operating. 6. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power. 7. If the sensor temperature reading is still not correct, replace ACU PCBA. 8. If failure does not appear, stop.

Model 00822A2. Why doesn't inside unit show outside temperature?


If you tried removing and replacing batteries, you should bear in mind that all batteries should be removed to "reset" the station then batteries should be installed in the outside sender first and time allowed for it to begin transmitting temperature. Next, batteries should be installed in the receiver and you should begin to read outside temperature.

Is the "remote sensor" the unit that is mounted outside? If so, then the thermometer is the unit that is inside the residence?


  • The Station that reveals all readings is placed in doors , the temperature sensor is placed outdoors if possible in a northern position of your building out of sun light

This may be a wiring issue as the sensor is electronic in nature. Any loose wiring may cause the voltage across the sensor to differ resulting in an inaccurate reading.

My new storm tracker STX7500 weathertech does not display the outside temperature


Take out the batteries in the main station for at least 5 min. Also, check the batteries on your outside station and make sure that they are new and the same brand, not rechargeables. Make sure that the outside station is reading a temperature and humidity first. Make sure that the outside gauge is close enough to your inside station. Having your inside station to near electrical or metal things or the outside station too far from the inside station is the most likely of your problems. To test this, once you've restarted your inside station, bring it close to the outside station and see if it's reading. Also, check the bottom right to see if your inside station has an antenna icon. If so, it's just updating from the radio station that updates your station often. Wait for that antenna to disappear from the bottom screen before trying to figure if your outside station is reading correctly. Finally, make sure that you have the right time zone, state, and city programmed into your inside station. If none of these work, call or e-mail the link in your book. Hope this works.
