After replacing the transmitter batteries several times, I tried replacing the clock batteries. They must have been getting low. Once I put in new batteries in the clock it worked fine. Good Luck.

Make sure the batteries are new for both the clock and the outdoor temperature sensor. Put the batteries in the outdoor sensor first. Wait to see the temperature reading on the sensor. Then put the batteries in the clock. In about 15 minutes the outdoor temperature should show on the clock.

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.

Look carefully at the back of your clock for a reset button. The temp may have encountered a problem and stopped working. Also, be sure the battery is fresh. Hope this helps.

WEATHER STATION AC100MB stops transmitting outdoor temp


I have experienced the same with numerous different, "quote un quote" atomic clocks! Please don't forget that this sender unit, that goes outside, generates a RF Singal to be received by the clock inside. This unit transmits a signal 433 MHz signal approximately every. 3 minutes, and after so many years the sender unit's RF section(electronics) just goes out or no longer function properly or not at all! The transmitter/sender for this model number, according to "3M" is obsolete and can no longer be furnished, DRATTS !!!!!

Remote sensor does not work after installing new batteries


Double check the batteries to make sure they are installed correctly. If one of the batteries in the outdoor sending unit is in backwards, it will not send the outdoor data. On the indoor unit, there is typically one battery that is used for receiving the signal from the outdoor unit. If all of the batteries are in correctly but that one, you will see the display and the indoor temperature information, but the outdoor information will not be displayed.

My clock is nort showing up the outside tempertute


Seems to be a consistent problem with Skyscan. I have the 88800 model and my outdoor transmitter isn't transmitting the temperature either. We've replaced the batteries in both the transmitter and clock and nothing for outdoor temp. It's only been used for 9 months.

Outdoor transmitting


These devices have a limited range, normally 20-30' (~6-9m) and that range is influenced by the material that separates them. Any metal structures in their path can shorten the useful range. Also, I think all of these transmit only a second or two every few minutes to conserve battery power.

Outside temperture


Try changing the batteries in the CLOCK. I had the same problem in a 3M similar clock and it didn't read the transmitter correctly or eventually, at all, when the CLOCK batteries were getting low.
