My Smart Gear STG-6007-BB weather station won't pick up the outdoor temperature from the remote sensor. I changed the batteries and reset the unit, but it still doesn't work. Any suggestions?

  • Remove all batteries
  • Install batteries in remote sensor. Allow time for it to begin sending temperature information
  • Install batteries in indoor unit. You should see temperature displayed
Cold weather can cause loss of temperature information

    Thanks, Tom. I have the indoor unit plugged in to an electrical outlet. I changed the batteries in the remote, but it still doesn't work. Cold weather not the issue. I'm in Florida.

Model WS9611UN-IT - I am unable to receive the outdoor temperature. I have changed the batteries on the outside remote but I still do not receive the outdoor temperature. How can this be corrected


Remove all batteries, both outdoor and indoor. Install batteries in outdoor unit and wait for it to begin sending a temperature signal. Install batteries in indoor unit. You should see outdoor temperature displayed. If not, batteries, transmitter, or indoor unit may be defective.

31215 Wireless Outdoor Thermometer manual


With mine, the battery in the weather station has to be changed twice as often as the one in the external unit. Even though the display on the home unit is visible, it doesn't have enough power to pick up the signal from the outside sensor.

I am not familiar with yours, mine is national Geographic.

The reviews on yours are very mixed, but lots of questions are answered.

Outdoor sensor won't work. Tried changing battery, no luck. Been trying this on and off for weeks. Any suggestions?


Some brands of Wireless thermometers need to have the base station reset to synchronize with the remote sensor. You would need to take the batteries out of both the remote sensor and the base station and then re-install all the batteries in both units (or three units if you have more than one remote sensor)
Each Manufacturer has their own procedure, La Crosse needs the procedure I described on many of their older systems. They may have changed it on the newer systems because I HATED resetting everything every time I change one set of batteries.

Why can't I receive input from the outside sending unit?


Make sure that all the batteries are good!!
This procedure outlines the typical process to pair the sensor and base.
Base Station Battery Installation

·Remove the printed vinyl label from the LCD screen of the base station
·Position the remote sensor near the base station
·Open the battery compartment at the back of the base station and insert (2) AA batteries according to the polarity markings. Replace the battery compartment cover.
·Within a short time the RF signal icon (located to the left of the outdoor temperature channel indicator) will start flashing. This indicates that the base station is ready to pick up the RF outdoor temperature signal from the remote sensor. It will continue to flash for 3 minutes or until the signal from the remote sensor is detected.

Register the Remote Sensor
·Open the battery compartment at the back of the remote sensor and slide the channel selector switch to your desired channel. For the first remote you may select any channel, for additional remotes select any unused channel
·Insert (2) AAA batteries according to the polarity markings. Be sure to install the batteries in the remote within the time that the RF signal icon is flashing on the base station. 1541 WeatherGuide Wireless Weather Forecaster with Barometer

Modelws 7013u how to replace and reset batteries


In systems with an outdoor transmitter and an indoor receiver, the usual battery replacement procedure is to start with the outdoor transmitter first, allow time for it to start sending data, then install the replacement batteries in the indoor unit. You should see the outdoor temperature being displayed.

How do I get the -- away and get the outdoor temperature to work?


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.

Cannot get the weather station model ws-916ou-it to show outside temperature


I have three of these WS-916OU-IT units. After a few years, the outside sensor just fails. You will get dashes and a "TR" low battery signal, even if the batteries are good
just buy another whole weather station (short money) and set both the old and new weather station unit to receive from the single new outdoor sensor.
To do this - just follow the procedure for a single sensor - that is - put the batteries in the new sensor - then within 30 seconds - put the batteries in all the weather stations - they will all pick up the same outdoor sensor.
I now have three units running off of one outdoor sensor.
Seems a bit silly, but it works.

The weather Forecast Icons don't change on my honeywell weather station model # TE852W


Hi,

This problem could arise due to various reasons
1)Replace the batteries in remote sensors
When the batteries are properly installed, the remote weather sensor will resume sending signals to the main unit.To enforce an immediate remote signals search, press and hold
DOWN on the main unit.

2)Remote thermo-hygrometer sensor could be weak in sending the signal about weather Forecast.Test it properly.

3)Reset the unit and check


post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)
