Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Taylor Thermo Sensor model THR138 isn't working properly. Each unit does display the temperature for that particular unit, however the inside unit doesn't show the outside temperature reading. It only show's a series of dashes where the outside temperature should be displayed. I've changed the batteries in both the outside and inside units, cleared both units, and am stumped. Thanks for any help.

Check the batteries in the main unit. If they get low it will only show dashes for the remote sensors.

The Thermo temp flashes HHH ....and the thermometer keeps beeping...??? What do I do!?

That means the temp is higher than the unit is able to detect. If it has been exposed to very high heat then it is damaged. It may still have a bad sensor.

Remote not working

Alkaline batteries will not work below freezing in the outside temperature sensor. Buy Lithium batteries for the outside sensor unit alkaline are okay for the inside unit.

It is difficult for me to translate your broken english. Typically a thermosensor is locater in the cylinder/cylinder head area in a water jacket. Some time they can be located in the radiator itself. There is usually a single wire going to a brass appearing fitting.

Where is the temp sensor on a Hayward H300 ED2 pool heater

Hayward H series with ED option have electronic ignition with one or two dial thermostats. Along with thermostats, there are other temperature safety switches to shutdown the heater in case of over temperature, both for water temperature and for interior cabinet temperature.

CAUTION: Always turn off power, gas and the water pump whenever repairing your Hayward H series pool heater.

CAUTION: The Hayward H series pool heater is essentially a gas furnace. Only a qualified technician with proper training and tools should make repairs of your heater.

I'm assuming you are seeking the location for the thermostat sensor rather than the temperature switches, and I'm assuming you have dial-style thermostat(s). Incoming water temperature is measured at the inlet of the water heat exchanger. For most H series models, provision is made for two thermowells. If your unit has dual thermostats, both of these wells will have a bulb-style sensor inserted directly into the thermowells. If only one thermostat, then one of the thermowell ports will be sealed with a plug. The factory orientation of the water inlet and outlet is on the right side of the heater (as you face the front), but the installer has the option to locate the inlet/outlet on the left side with a field modification. Check your particular inlet/outlet orientation for either right or left side.

The heat exchanger thermowells and the thermostat sensors are located directly behind a two metal access plates that surrounds the heat exchanger inlet and outlet ports. Several Phillips-style screws secure the access plates to the heater cabinet. After several years of outside operation, these screws will likely be corroded and need some anti-rust oil to aid in their removal. When you have completed your examination of the thermowells and thermostat bulbs, I recommend applying some grease to the screws before re-assembly.

Once the access plates have been removed, the thermo-wells can be seen on the left side of the heat exchanger, which is the inlet side. Use the arrows on the top of the heat exchanger as a guide for inlet an outlet. The thermostat sensor bulb is directly inserted into the thermowell without any securing mechanism other than a copper or brass friction strip. I have seen some situations where a small amount of fiberglass has been inserted behind the bulb. The bulb should be inserted all the way into the thermowell until it touches the back. The copper or brass strip is used to keep the bulb in contact with the sides of the thermowell.

(For non-dial thermostat systems, the inlet water temperature measurement is made in the same location, but with a different device.)

CAUTION: The thermostat sensor is a liquid-filled thermo-expansion sensor. It relies on the thermo-expansion properties of a non-compressible fluid to operate the thermostat switch. Take care to not crush or kink the capillary tube between the sensor bulb and the dial thermostat switch.

If you remove the sensor bulb, take care to capture the copper/brass strip in order to use during re-insertion.

NOTE: Thermowells are sized to the particular thermostat sensor bulb. If you replace the thermostat sensor be sure to use the same size sensor bulb as the one being removed. If this is not possible, the thermowell may also need to be replaced.

Check your manual for verification of part numbers. The H series dial thermostat part number is CHXTSW1931. The matching thermowell is CHXTBW1930.

I have a 5744 a little over 1 year old. When you step on the scale the only thing that shows is "00" . It was working fine until today. Tried changing batteries and got the same results.

If display shows 00 - it is Initialization error. To clearthis error, step off the scale. Press on the platform. The display will show"----, then "0000", and turn off. Finally repeat the measurement. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

The weather Forecast Icons don't change on my honeywell weather station model # TE852W


This problem could arise due to various reasons
1)Replace the batteries in remote sensors
When the batteries are properly installed, the remote weather sensor will resume sending signals to the main unit.To enforce an immediate remote signals search, press and hold
DOWN on the main unit.

2)Remote thermo-hygrometer sensor could be weak in sending the signal about weather Forecast.Test it properly.

3)Reset the unit and check

post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

the problem is the placement of the thermo sensors. They are in the wrong location. If I can be honest I would exchange the fridge as i heard more of these horor stories.
Good luck
