Double check the batteries and the direction in which they are installed. If there is one backwards in the sending unit that is outside, it will not send a signal. Also, there is typically one battery in the indoor unit that is responsible for receiving the signal from the outdoor unit. If all of the batteries are in correctly except that battery, you will see the display, but will not get the data transmitted from the outside sending unit.

I cut the wire that leads to the annoying noisemaker. Carefully remove the rear cover to expose the circuit board (the rear cover is connected to the circuit board so pull them apart carefully). Locate the noisemaker, mine was round and connected to the back cover with black and red wires. Cut the black and red wires and replace the rear cover. NOTE: If you use the alarm feature, it won't work anymore. I read on the Acurite site that the reason it beeps is because of interference with the wireless signal. They suggest not using one of your wireless devices. If you are like me, that isn't a good option.

There is no way to turn off beeping. From this site: http://www.chaneyinstruments.com/FAQ.aspx
found solution - Q: My wireless weather station periodically beeps, why?
A: Make sure that any alert and/or alarm features are deactivated first. Constant, sporadic beeping is generally due to the unit's ability to detect a foreign radio frequency of another wireless unit when that unit transmits a signal. Wireless devices that may cause beeping but are not limited to these devices are; scanners; computers w/wireless keyboard/mouse; or other wireless weather instruments. Essentially, any wireless devices transmitting on a radio frequency have the potential to interfere with each other. Limit the amount of wireless devices to lesson the chance of interference. When beeping occurs, one device will need to be deactivated.
Another external temp gauge showed up on the other channel, so my neighbor or someone is using the similar unit. MY SOLUTION: opened back of case and cut black wire to piezo speaker (at base if rear cover opposite side of stand-up prop) that creates beep. ALL good now.
