Top 20 Oregon Scientific Wireless IndoorOutdoor Thermometer with Atomic Clock Sync Questions & Answers


The ice warning is normally only on channel 1. Just set wireless sensor to channel 2 or 3, then select that same channel to display on the base unit.
If you don't ever want to use the ice warning feature, then use channel 1 for a sensor that's situated indoors, then hope you never hear it!!!

You have to push some buttons to tell the MAIN unit to scan, then put battery into the REMOTE, set channel, and hit reset through a little hole. And the MAIN should see it.

Both the remote and base units have a very small hole near the battery spot, less than 1/8" in diameter. Push something smaller than the hole into it, like the end of an unbent paper clip. The base unit, at least, will give a tiny beep and it will have reset. The remote may not beep, but also will be reset.

I had the same problem, Since the outside temp wouldn't read, I figured it was the outside unit batteries. Went through half a dozen AAA batteries and wouldn't read. It was the indoor unit. Had the same bats I installed 3 years ago. DUH! Replaced the AAA, and all was well. When the inside batteries die out, it has just enough juice to read indoor temp, but not enought to sense exterior signal.

change the batteries and leave it near the main unit for a while to get a signal back

you should just post any question one time.

Use a volt meter to see if the battery is depleted or not. If you replace the battery and the alarm stops then it was a weak battery, If it keeps on then there something setting it off. You can use the information in the owners manual Oregon Scientific BAR629HGU Manuals to troubleshoot it.

Heavens Kaitlan you don't ask much do you? I think you need to spend a happy hour or two online with each question, unless there's a Professor of Climatology reading this.

Check the batteries and then you can reset the device to detect all the sensors. If that does not work, contact the manufacturer for a replacement.

I have had this Oregon Scientific model RAR186 unit for years and it works great. The only issue I ever have is when the batteries need to be changed in the remote sensor unit (Oregon scientific model #THN122). It never fails that once I change the batteries that the unit does not send a signal to the base unit. I will often hit the reset button and change the channels on the remote sensor before I finally remember that you need to do the following to get the sensor to talk to the RAR186 base unit:

On the base unit (RAR186), hold down the CHANNEL and MEM buttons for at least two seconds.
You will then see a graphic appear above the channel number that shows that it is searching for the sensor.
Within a minute, you will then see the temperature displayed for the sensor showing that they are communicating.

This is buried in the manual that you probably discarded as did I.

Apparently, if your sensor is broken, you can either search to find a new sensor of the same model or also use the following sensors: THC138, THGR122NX, or THN132N
I have not needed to replace the sensor as once I found the instructions to reset the communication between the sensor and base unit, all was fine. Hope this helps someone. I wrote this instruction using a Sharpie on the inside cover of the sensor since you have to remove 3 screws to replace the AAA batteries (2) in hopes I will remember next time and not waste my time searching the internet and not find the answer. Good luck!
