It indicates the battery is low. Where is it and how do I change it?


The battery or batteries are located inside the unit(s). In the case of the thermostat, the unit has top be removed from the wall to expose the battery compartment. The wireless remote sensor probably contains a separate battery which could need replacing as well.

I have a white rodgers 1F80-24 thermostat which has worked fine for years. Now all of a sudden the numbers and time on the display are all broken up making it hard to read. Any ideas on how to fix. Thanks

This is the manual for your thermostat. You probably just have bad batteries. If you pull your thermostat shell off you should see batteries in the shell or base, further, if you have a blue wire in the wires that hook to base, make sure it's connected. The unit could be bad but, they count on the batteries for display and memory.

I have a White Rodgers digital thermostat .I do not have the manual.I am getting a lo battery message. How do I replace the battery? Does it come off the wall or is there an easy way to open it? I dont...


The outer shell of the thermostat pushes on(clips) to mounting bracket attached to wall.

1. Remove the packing material from the thermostat. Gently

pull the cover straight off the base. Forcing or prying on

the thermostat will cause damage to the unit

Replaced 9 v batteries, units still chirping


This is the troubleshooting information from the kddie site. The problem is usually related to an older battery or improperly installed battery. You might also have to do a reset as described below. If battery and cleaning don't work, it might be time for a replacement - short money to keep you and your home safe.

  1. The battery may be loose, or improperly installed.
    Verify that a battery of the recommended type is securely installed. Make sure to use a battery with a use-by date no later than four to five years in the future. Check that the battery is snapped in completely so it cannot be shaken loose. It’s possible that battery connections may not be making good contact with the battery. Disconnecting and re-connecting the battery once or twice will likely fix this condition. On units with a front-load battery, be sure that the battery compartment door is closed completely as well. Loose white neutral wire can cause an echoing chirp. (From one unit to the next)

  2. The smoke alarm sensing chamber may be dirty.
    Dust and insects can collect in the sensing chamber of the alarm. An accumulation of dust in the sensing chamber can cause the unit to chirp. It is good practice to clean the smoke alarm when you change the battery. Static electricity from the ac quick connector attracts dust and can cause false alarms.

    Cleaning smoke alarms:
    To clean your alarm, remove it from the mounting bracket as outlined here. You can clean the interior of your alarm (sensing chamber) by using compressed air or a vacuum cleaner hose and blowing or vacuuming through the openings around the perimeter of the alarm. The outside of the alarm can be wiped with a damp cloth. After cleaning, reinstall your alarm, verify the green LED is on and test your alarm by using the Test Button. If cleaning does not restore the alarm to normal operation, the alarm should be replaced.

  3. Check environmental conditions:
    • Humidity, steam and condensation can cause false alarms. Causes of condensation are:
      • Extreme temperatures changes.
      • High ambient humidity.
      • Unit being installed in an uninsulated electrical box mounted on a ceiling beneath an attic. If this condition exists you’ll want to move the alarm. Click here to see the correct alarm placement in your user’s manual found in our Download Center.
    • Check to see if there is a cooling/heating register, a ceiling fan or an open window within 3 feet of the alarm. If there is, move the alarm away from the source of the increased airflow. Click here to see the correct alarm placement in your user’s manual found in our Download Center.
    • Check the temperature of the room. Smoke alarms operate at 40 degrees to 95 degrees Fahrenheit. Carbon monoxide alarms operate at 40 degrees to 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

  4. Reset the alarm.
    Some current model smoke alarms have a processor that retains certain error conditions, such as a weak battery. The error condition should reset when the battery is replaced but sometimes it does not and must be manually reset to clear the error.

    To reset an AC unit with a battery backup:
    Turn off the power to the smoke alarm at the circuit breaker.Remove the smoke alarm from the mounting bracket and disconnect the power. Remove the battery. Press and hold the test button for at least 15 seconds. The unit may chirp or alarm for a few seconds before going silent.Reconnect the power and reinstall the battery. The unit will chirp once when the power is restored and should not chirp afterwards.

    To reset a DC only unit:
    Remove the battery. Press and hold the test button for at least 15 seconds. The unit may chirp or alarm for a few seconds before going silent.Reinstall the battery. The unit will chirp when the battery is first connected but should not chirp afterwards.

  5. An electrical condition may be causing the power to the unit to be interrupted.
    If the AC power to the unit is interrupted, the unit will chirp when the power is restored. This could be caused by power surges.
    If the chirping seems to occur at about the same time in the evening or morning, it could be due to a surge created when the power company switches electrical grids to meet demand. Check to see if the chirp (or chirping) occurs when something else in the house is turned on such as an exhaust or attic fan, a heater, etc. If the smoke alarm is connected to a circuit with such a device, the alarm may chirp when the other device is switched on. If this is the case and the device is plugged into a wall outlet, move it to another outlet on a different circuit. If it is a hardwired device, have an electrician investigate it. These conditions can be minimized by installing your alarms on a dedicated circuit in compliance with NFPA requirements.

  6. Replace the alarm.
    If none of these conditions exist and the suggestions don't alleviate the symptom, the alarm should be replaced. Age may be a factor. Smoke and heat alarms should be replaced every 10 years, and carbon monoxide and combination alarms should be replaced every 7 years. Most of our alarms have a 5 year warranty from date of purchase (check your user manual for details). A date code is stamped on the label attached to the back of the unit.

My alarm is chirping every 30 seconds. This is my second one. no light .


An intermittent chirp usually indicates that the battery needs changing, or a battery needs to be installed. If this is a new unit that came with the battery already inside, there is probably a tab located between the top of the battery and the contacts that needs removing before the unit will stop chirping.

Outdoor device won't register inside.


All these wireless weather station devices have to be paired to the base unit whenever the batteries are changed in any of the remotes. It's a poor design issue, but there is no way around it, due to the nature of wireless operation.

Place both units near each other and look on the back of your base and remote sensor units, you should find a reset button (or a small hole). Either press the button or use the end of a paper clip to depress and hold the reset on each unit; Base 1st, then the remote 2nd.

After a brief moment, the remote should register with the base and you'll be back getting wireless readings.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Low battery on hunter 44422


I have the same unit, 44422. The base has four clips, two on the top and two on the bottom. The front portion is clip-on. Try to push on the base's bottom and pull off the front portion, like opening a book. After the battery replacement you will have to reset the unit trough the little reset hole. Otherwise, the ''LOW BATTERY" will not go away. Yes, you will have to reprogram the unit.

Phone is chirping


Most phones chirp.
1. Low battery........NEEDS a 12 hour or more charge from phone charger.
2. Loosing signal.
3. Electrical interference.
4. Some set communicate with the base for freqency signaling and change channels automatically when interference occurs. The chirp is to autonotify the user.

Most importantly, think about the situation when chirps occur and write it down. At some later date, compare your notes and you'll find your culprit.
Hope this is helpful.
