Question about Bushnell Pinseeker 1500 Rangefinder

2 Answers

Inconsistent and unreliable readings

Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes I get an accurate reading and sometimes it's way off. Also, frequently can't get any reading on a flag, but seems to work when pointing at a larger object. Didn't have these problems when I first started using it in June.

A flag is a hard object to get a reading on. It constantly moves and the sound or light waves (depending on the model) will not be reflected consistantly. Clean the sender lens and the receiver lens and install new batteries. Recalibrate the unit using something stationary, like a FLAT wall.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the quick response. I'll try the recommended fixes. In particular, I'm intrigued by the recalibrating by aiming at a flat wall. Thank you!"

Oven temp is inconsistent. Sometimes it works but most of the time it doesn't. Yesterday we set it at 350 degrees. Two hours later it only came up to 250 degrees. I've replaced the oven sensor but...

Is this a gas oven? gas ovens rely on ignitor/glowbar ignition. The system uses amp draw to open the gas valve. If the ignitor is off a tad in amp draw then kickin or bangin on the stove sometimes makes that puppy work.

I am getting inconsistent odometer readings. For a 23 mile round trip it will sometimes read 47 miles sometimes 23.

Newer car have an electronic speedometer and the problem can be a bad sensor at the transmission or to the computer. The sensor picks up the signal through a magnetic device in the transmission, this sensor could be at fault.....

Gas guage not reading accurate

Your sending unit inside of the fuel tank is probably faulty. Unfortunately you have to drop the tank to change it.
