Hello. Chances are that the battery contacts in the outdoor unit are corroded due to exposure to moisture. Do this. Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts in the device using the eraser end of a common pencil. Then reinsert the batteries. If that doesn't do it, go to any auto parts store and get a can of electrical contact cleaning spray and repeat the above steps. J.

Just put new batteries in both units but can't get the oudoor temp to show - what have ee done wrong?


Replacement has to be done in a certain order.
  • Remove all batteries
  • Install batteries in outdoor unit. Allow time for unit to initialize and begin transmitting temp.
  • Install batteries in indoor unit. You should see outdoor temperature displayed.

You may find that the outdoor temperature is not transmitted in very cold weather. Right now it is below freezing and my indoor unit is showing - - for outdoor temperature.

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.

Why isn't outdoor temperature displayed on indoor unit?


I have a La Crosse unit right in front of me and it is showing +18 F tonight. Saturday, we are supposedly going to sub-zero.
With regard to your problem, La Crosse instructions are very specific about the battery replacement procedure. Remove all batteries from both units, then install new batteries in the outdoor unit. Allow time for the outdoor unit to "initialize" and begin sending temperature data. Install new batteries in the indoor unit and you should see the outdoor temperature displayed.

My outdoor temperature shows three lines I have change the battier as manual said, but it didn't help? Do you sell replacements?


Fixya does not sell anything. The replacement batteries in the outdoor unit could be defective or installed incorrectly. The battery replacement procedure in the instructions must be followed exactly, i.e., batteries replaced in the outdoor unit then allowing time for the outdoor unit to begin sending data before installing batteries in the indoor unit to get an external temperature readout.

Radio Shack 63-1090 indoor/outdoor temperature unit. Won't give outdoor readings. Temps are cold, -5F but it always worked before. Put in new batteries in the inside and outside units, wiped outdoor sensor...


According to instructions for similar systems, you have to replace batteries in the outdoor unit first, then the indoor unit and wait 10 minutes without pressing any buttons for the indoor unit to begin displaying the outdoor temperature.

ONLY SHOWS INDOOR TEMPERATURE DOES NOT SHOW OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE


I have a similar device and the instructions say to remove batteries from both units and wait for 10 minutes without pressing any buttons before installing batteries first in the remote unit then the indoor unit. The outdoor and indoor units have to "talk" to each other before getting in the mood to display temperatures.

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!

INSTALLING BATTERIES
IMPORTANT:Read the section SETTING UP THE THERMOMETER before installing the batteries for the first time.

1.Remove the rear cover of thermometer. Install 2 new AA batteries. Replace battery cover.
2.Loosen 4 screws on rear battery cover of the Remote Sensor and slide battery cover off.
3.Install 2 new AA batteries .
4.After batteries are installed, the remote sensor will begin transmitting and automatically register to the Thermometer
(within range) after several minutes. However, you can also press the small button in the battery compartment (labeled Tx) to register the Remote Sensor to the Thermometer immediately
5.Replace battery cover and tighten 4 battery screws. Make ure that the battery cover is fully on and tightened to assure a watertight seal.

SETTING UP THE THERMOMETER
The thermometer can monitor up to two different Remote Sensors on two separate channels. Add-on remote sensors can be purchased separately and are compatible with the GE Wireless Thermometer/Clock (model GE5805WS4) as well as this unit. When first installing, always insert batteries into the Thermometer first, then into the Remote Sensor.
The thermometer uses random security code technology-it will learn the random code of the first Remote Sensor it detects and log in as channel 1. Channel 2 will register in the same way. NOTE: Registered channels will be erased when the batteries of the Thermometer or Remote Sensor are removed. When replacing batteries for a Remote Sensor, remember to clear the corresponding channel of the Thermometer in this way:

1.Remove batteries from the remote sensor (step 2 of installing batterie)
2.Select the channel that you would like to clear by pressing the CH button on the Thermometer until this channel number is displayed.
3.Hold the CH button for 3 seconds to clear the channel
4.Follow steps 3-5

MOUNTING THE REMOTE SENSOR AND THERMOMETER
Remote Sensor is suitable for outdoor mounting (watertight) at a range up to 100 feet from the Thermometer. HOWEVER, HE UNIT SHOULD NOT BE MOUNTED IN A POSITiON WHERE IT WILL BE SUBMERSED IN WATER, OR EXPOSED TO DIRECT SUNLIGHT, OR NEAR OTHER SOURCES OF HEAT OR COLD (I won't bother typing the rest) except for:

LOW Battery icon for the sensor will show up on either the
ch 1 or ch 2 display depending on which sensor is losing battery power.

Battery life 6 months
Temp Range Therm 32 to 122 deg F
Remote Sensor -58 to 158 deg F *
*Alkaline batteries can freeze temporarily at temps below -4 deg F. In this condition, the Remote Sensor cannot accurately transmit temp info to the Thermometer. This limits the effective minimum temp fo the Remote Sensor to -4 deg F

Operational Range....>50ft(and up to 100ft)(less interferances)

RF Channel ....refresh to "---" if no signal received in 60 minutes

Remote Weather Station shows "HHH"


This means that the read is over the HIGH limit of the sensor, perhaps is too hot there. Change it to another location. josemaX
