Question about Heating & Cooling
I have a GE digital wireless thermometer and don't have a user's manual. I cannot find any information on the internet. There is an indoor and outdoor component. The part number on the indoor piece is GE5805WS5 and the outdoor piece is GE5805WS4.
My specific problem is I cannot get establish a channel for the two pieces to communicate with. I've pressed a number of combinations of buttons but cannot figure it out.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Wireless Digital Thermometer GE5805WS4
Buttons and Functions
Front of unit:

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

You need to press the CH and MAX/MIN buttons at the same time. Make sure the transmitter is set to the same channel you have on the receiver. The transmitter has a switch inside the unit where the batteries are.

If you remove the batteries from both then add the batteries first to the receiver then to the transmitter they will sync up. Just don't press any buttons! :-)

I found my manual. After you replace the batteries in the wireless sensor, using a pin or something like that press the reset button in the sensor. Next press the CH and MAX/MIN buttons at the same time on the base unit.to force a search. If the channel changes, just press the CH button until your channel is showing. The wireless sensor transmits a new reading every 30 seconds and the LED will flash. The units should then sink up.
To set the clock press and hold the MODE button for three seconds and the hours will start flashing. Use the up/down buttons to set the hour. Press MODE to confirm. The minutes will start flashing. Repeat for minutes, month, day, year and language. (E) English, (D) German, (F) French and (S) Spanish.
Alarm can be set by pressing AL once for Alarm1 and again for Alarm2. Hold the AL button for three seconds to get to the alarm time set function. Use the up/down arrow buttons to set the hours. Press AL again and you will get to minutes. Press AL to exit.

Put batteries in indor unit first then go through set up routine for time, date, weather etc.
Then hold down Ch button for three seconds to clear the receive channel.
Now in the outdoor unit select Ch1 using the slider switch in the battery compartment, insert the batteries, then with the outdoor unit close to the indoor unit, press the transmit button in the outdoor unit. The two units 'should' synchronise.
If not then remove the batteries from the outdoor unit the hold down the Ch button on the indoor unit to clear the channel again, then repeat the insert outdoor unit batteries and press transmit.
Your outfit should now be a goer. routine.
