Either the sensor is defective or the receiver is, toss a coin.

SOURCE: I have an Acurite weather station, model 02080, and when I place the lightning sensor outdoors as it states in setup, outdoor temp is indicated. How do I set it up to work properly?

The display has the internal sensor for temp and barometer, The 5 in one has the sensor for outdoors and shows temp, wind speed and direction, humidity and rain. With the added lightning detector having the additional temp sensor in it, the system is redundant. It is recommended to put the sensor outside for best results that t have the least interference and maximum range..

I need a outdoor sensor for a sharp weather station 595


I'm seeing that product/brand on ebay and amazon, so you can reach out to sellers of the item on those websites and they should have the accessories that you need.

Thank you.

Can I download an owners manual for a dr tech WF-1070T outdoor sensor?

Not found it so far but here is a book for a 1050 model, much of which is transferable. There is no Dr. Tech website per se where you can get support or download a manual. That means you would have to depend upon hobbyist/blogs or look up information in generic sites about factors in weather if you have a question. Here is a site where you might try some queries:

Acurite weather forcaster not showing outside temp

Here's the manual for the AcuRite Weather Forecaster. If it's not showing the outside temperature, make sure the A-B-C switch is set to match the display unit. Not doing so might be the reason it's not synchronizing and displaying the outdoor temperature.

Why can't I receive input from the outside sending unit?

Make sure that all the batteries are good!!
This procedure outlines the typical process to pair the sensor and base.
Base Station Battery Installation

·Remove the printed vinyl label from the LCD screen of the base station
·Position the remote sensor near the base station
·Open the battery compartment at the back of the base station and insert (2) AA batteries according to the polarity markings. Replace the battery compartment cover.
·Within a short time the RF signal icon (located to the left of the outdoor temperature channel indicator) will start flashing. This indicates that the base station is ready to pick up the RF outdoor temperature signal from the remote sensor. It will continue to flash for 3 minutes or until the signal from the remote sensor is detected.

Register the Remote Sensor
·Open the battery compartment at the back of the remote sensor and slide the channel selector switch to your desired channel. For the first remote you may select any channel, for additional remotes select any unused channel
·Insert (2) AAA batteries according to the polarity markings. Be sure to install the batteries in the remote within the time that the RF signal icon is flashing on the base station. 1541 WeatherGuide Wireless Weather Forecaster with Barometer

We would recommend a reset of your Weather Station. Please verify that you are using a good-quality, standard alkaline battery, and follow the steps below.
  1. Remove the batteries from the outdoor sensor only.
  2. In the outdoor section on the main unit, there will be a "CH" and number 1-3.
  3. If on CH 1, press and hold the channel button on the back of the unit for 5 seconds.
  4. Press and release the channel button one time, it should show CH 2.
    • If it does not change to CH 2, repeat steps 4 and 5.
  5. Press and hold the channel button for 5 seconds.
  6. Press and release the channel button one time, it should show CH 3.
    • If it does not change to CH 3, repeat steps 6 and 7.
  7. Press and hold the channel button for 5 seconds.
  8. Press and release the channel button one time, it should return to CH 1.
    • If it does not change to CH 1, repeat steps 8 and 9.
    ***Regardless of what channel you begin on, clear out each channel by holding the channel button and return to CH 1***
  9. Reinstall batteries in the outdoor sensor.
  10. Press and release the TX button.
  11. Leave both units side by side for up to 30 minutes to gain a strong connection.

Acurite wireless weather will not work new last season all new lithium batteries in right and were checked no picture #'s on screen

Hi Jerry,

While lithium batteries are recommended for the outdoor sensor it is not recommended they be used in the indoor display unit. Try using a good quality, fresh alkaline batteries and you should find your display turns back on.
