Question about SkyScan 86709 Atomic Wall Clock

Open Question

We have had our S10Scan for 2 years now and everything worked fine up until last month when the outside temperature stopped recording. The first thing we did was change the batteries but that has not solved the problem. Any suggestions? Thank you.

SOURCE: outside temperature won't work

Please check the following website for all the info and faq.


If you have lost the outside temperature on the clock display after replacing the transmitter battery then do the following:

1. Make sure you have good batteries installed in the remote transmitter
2. Remove the batteries from the main clock and keep them out until the clock display disappers.
3. Re-install the batteries in the clock.
4. Wait until the display returns and includes the outside temperature display as well.
5. Set the clock again for current time/date etc.
6. Bingo. You are in business.

SOURCE: The clock stopped showing the outside temperature.

OFTEN you must re-sync the receiver with the transmitter in these units. Refer to the manual for startup sequence.

SOURCE: skyscan digital wall clock just quit showing outside temperature

you probably need to 'pair' the outdoor sensor with the main base: look for a 'channel' button, as these units usually can get information from several sensors and differentiate them by a channel number.

SOURCE: Everything but the outside temperature

I have found a link to Skyscan FAQ's and it has a little bit more time required to reset the system.I am not sure if it applies to all models but I could not find the manual for your particular model.It is a quick easy read and fix.I am not sure why but they recommend Duracell,but basically an alkaline battery is an alkaline battery.There is very little difference in how long an alkaline battery will last but lithium is different and lasts longer than alkaline but still,lithium is lithium and most will last very close in usage time no matter the brand(just for your info).The decision is obviously yours.If this doesn't work,please reply to this post and I will get an auto link.Good luck!

SOURCE: Outside temperature not working on

hello lucy... you most likely have some corrosion in the outdoor component. Remove the batteries from the outdoor component and clean the battery contacts with the eraser end of a common pencil. Reinstall the batteries and then give it up to 8 hours to start reporting accurately again. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

The rain gauge will not record the rain fall. It displays 0.00 on everything except last month. I now have it in the house have checked the batteries(they were fine) have cleaned it (it wasn't dirty) and...

You say 'the batteries were fine'. How did you check? With my weather station, the main station will not display the outside temperature when the battery gets to a certain point. The display on the weather station is fine, but it doesn't have enough power to pick up the data from the outside sensor, despite not being very far away. Replace both sets of batteries to be certain.

Refrigerator will not get cold, but freezer works

Make sure your fan is working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked (usually with ice).With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open untill all traces of ice are gone this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

Is there a condensate trap in the line before the discharge?
Also is the orifice or near it cracked?
With all the movement and expansion and contraction due to the temperature changes in the seasons and conditions, there might be a crack somewhere else.
Be ready with a Wax Ring for a toilet ( a new one ).
They usually seal it up fairly well.
Works for me until I can get a new pan.
God Bless.

I imagine you have checked the disk for scratches top and bottom, if so you can purchase a cd/dvd lens cleaner cdrom as the laser may need realigning and cleaning.
