You may have to "reset" it by removing both indoor and outdoor unit batteries, waiting briefly, then reinstalling batteries in the outdoor unit followed by the indoor unit. After awhile, the outdoor unit should begin sending information to the indoor unit.

Changed batteries and now cannot get an outdoor reading.how do I fix this?


  • Remove all batteries
  • Install batteries in outdoor unit
  • Make your way indoors at a leisurely pace. This allows the outdoor unit to initialize and begin sending data
  • Install batteries in indoor unit. You should see outdoor temperature displayed
In cold weather, the outdoor temperature display may disappear due to frozen batteries. At the moment my reading is - - because it is around 40 deg. F. However, in a day or two when the outdoor temperature reaches 50 deg., the outdoor temperature will be displayed again. All in all, rather whimsical.

Out do I get the outside temp back.


You have to remove all batteries, both outdoor and indoor. Install replacement batteries in the outdoor unit. Back indoors, install replacement batteries in the indoor unit and wait for temperature to be displayed. If nothing happens, the outdoor unit may have failed.

My fireplace doesn't light right away, then it shuts off after a few minutes.


sounds to me like your thermocouple is loose just go to where it connects to the gas valve and tighten it most times this happens after it has been replaced, because temperature changes loosen them also make sure the pilot flame is directly on the thermocouple , sometimes dust gets in to the pilot and changes direction of the flame making it "grade the thermocouple, with the main burner on the air flow sometimes "moves the flame and the thermocouple thinks it went out and shuts down the main burner. extinguish the pilot, either blow it out with canned air, or use a q tip to reach down and dust it out then re light. should be good

Hi Susuan,
One of these methods below should get your device working properly. Good luck!
LaCorosse Tech Support email address.
The product information page
From the manual:
915MHz RECEPTION CHECK FOR OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE SENSOR
The atomic clock will receive the temperature data within 3 minutes. If the temperature data is not being received 3 minutes after setting up (the display shows "- - -"), then please check the following points:
1. The distance of the atomic clock or outdoor temperature sensor should be at least 6 feet (2meters) away from any interfering sources such as computer monitors or TV sets.
2. Avoid placing the receiver onto or in the immediate proximity of metal window frames.
3. Using other electrical products such as headphones or speakers operating on the same signal frequency (915MHz) may prevent correct signal transmission and reception.
4. Neighbors using electrical devices operating on the 915MHz signal frequency can also cause interference.
Note:
When the 915 MHz signal is received correctly, do not re-open the battery cover of either the outdoor temperature sensor or atomic clock, as the batteries may spring free from the contacts and force a false reset. Should this happen accidentally then reset all units (see Setting up above) otherwise transmission problems may occur.
The maximum transmission range is 330 feet (100 meters) from the outdoor temperature sensor to the atomic clock (in open space). However, this depends on the surrounding environment and interference levels. If no reception is possible despite the observation of these factors, all system units have to be reset (see Setting up).

Your computer is getting too hot. Get canned air and spray all the dust out, especially the dust in and around the proccessor and heatsink (big metal grille).
Then move the computer off shaggy carpet and move it several inches away from the wall.

If that doesn't wokr you may have hardware incompatabilites, like with your memory or graphics card.

No Heat!


Sometimes too much dust around the heating elements can cause the heater to switch off to prevent a fire. Check for dust build up first. You can try using a can of compressed air that can be found at many electronic stores.
