Replacement Wind Cups
Includes: Wind cups, instruction manual
Warranty: Limited 1 year warranty
Was relieved to find out that the wind cups could be replaced. Easily replaced new set. The unit is operating like new again.
These are a perfect replacement set of wind cups for my 5-in-1 weather station. Installation was a breeze. The old ones just pull straight up and off--with a little force. The new set just presses back on by hand. Kudos to Accurite for providing replacement parts like these for a reasonable price. $5.00 is more than fair for these things! For this reason alone I will buy their products when the time comes to replace my existing instrument.
A wind and hail storm broke off one of my wind cups after a year and a half. The replacement cups came quickly and were fairly priced (except for the relatively high shipping costs). Removing the old cups was very simple and I had no problems like others have written about. Simply pulling with a firm and steady force, the old ones popped right off and the new ones slipped right on. The cups may appear very fragile, but they must be light so they will start turning in light breezes, which would not happen if they were made with greater mass. While I had my sensor unit down from its mounting pole, I took the opportunity to put in new Lithium batteries. The 1.5 year old batteries were still going strong, but the effort to bring down the sensor made this a fair replacement time. I applaud Acurite for keeping small parts like this available.
When the wind took my roof over my deck off it broke both the wind cups and wind vane. I was excited that I could get parts for this unit and now is fully functional. I am enjoying watching my weather again.
I tried the instructions to remove the damaged cups but could not pull them off, so I used a hammer and gave it a smart tap and was then able to remove the old ones. The new ones went on easily and is fully functional now.
Ordering was easy and professional. Equipment took a beating during during a bad snowstorm but after repair is still operating like new. Good job!
I ordered this after a tree branch came down and smashed the wind cups on my weather station. The old broken one came off and this one went on and I am back in business.
This purchase was specifically for replacement wind cups for the 5-in-1Acu-Rite weather station. I was so glad that I was able to purchase, for a very fair price, just what I needed. It came quickly, and the directions to install this replacement part were clear and do-able.
I have really enjoyed this weather station for 2 years. When the rain gauge quit working this past summer, I went onto the Acu-Rite website and found a video that helped me take care of the problem.
I purchased the cups to replace the damaged cups from a storm. They were easy to replace and the cost was fair. Shipping cost more then product but was worth the wait.
Had a little trouble getting the old one off but the new cups went on without problems. Don't drop unit on the cups
The hail was hard on my cups, and broke. Instructions included when I got them. Little harder then just pulling off and almost broke the wind direction sail. So be careful. BUt they work and I have extra s just in case.
Need to keep spare on hand due to hail damage to plastic construction.
Birds landing on the original cups broke two off. Close examination showed them to be flimsy. The replacement cups were much more substantial. My recommendation is to buy an extra set of cups when you purchase your original unit.
When a hailstorm broke off the wind cups of our weather station, I immediately ordered a new one. Fast delivery. Easy to install. Reasonable price.
I check my weather station daily! I highly recommend getting one!
Excellent replacement, fast delivery. I was very satisfied
A hailstorm knnocked off all 3 cups on the anemometer! I easily found the replacement part on their website, ordered it and it arrived within 2 days of placing the order. The replacement part came with installation instructions tat were easy to follow and amount to pulling the broken part from the shaft, placing a drop of light oil on the shaft, (I used sewing machine oil) and pressing the new part onto the shaft. I did clean a bit of dust from the shaft before oiling it. Couldn't be simpler, and I loved the fast service!
I had to pull pretty hard on the old one to get it off. The new cups went on quick and easy. Fixed my wind speed detection issue (one cup was missing on the old one). Excellent pricing for the replacement part.
Shipping to Canada was a bit pricey though. I almost did not order but added them to another item so the overall cost per item was better.
A miss guided 2X4 accidentally broke two of the cups while repairing the fence my weather station was mounted upon. I did some research and came up with ACURITE. Ordered the replacement parts and I was back in action in less than a week. Thank you for the enclosed instructions that guided me to a quick removal and replacement of the wind cups...piece of cake!
After being outside for years it's understandable that the broken wind cups aren't easy to get off. Tried everything to get the old anemometer off. Eventually found that an electric hammer works very well to tap the broken product off and put the new anemometer on.
I'm a storm chaser and local spotter, so I keep an eye on the weather all the time. I've been through a bunch of weather stations. Usually when it breaks, one painfully tosses one's investment into the trash bin, and sadly gets online to buy the replacement.... This time, the best in class showed up, and I snatched it up as fast as my credit card could grab it! I almost cried when I broke the cups while adjusting the pole it was on. But, alas, there was a very inexpensive solution to replace the broken parts, and a very friendly customer support fellow happy to assist me in that purchase. Who would have thunk? What an awesome experience!
For my 5 in 1, broke during a move (my fault for not packing correctly). Very easy replacement... Pull the old one off, push the new on on... Could be difficult if your 5-in-1 unit is mounted high off the ground.
After owning a 5-in-1 weather station for about 4+ years we moved and my husband broke a cup and we ordered a new one and it came in quick and it was easy for him to remove the old one and easy to install the new one and it was good as new. I love my weather station.
After 5 years of OK sun, 70mph + winds, several thunderstorms, and large hail, a crow landed on it and broke off a cup. Ordered 3, got within a week, and painted it before installing it with bright colors, hoping the birds will stay off. Sure looks pretty spinning. It was easy to remove the old one and install the new one.
Ordered 3 to replace the one that the crows used for a perch. Had this one for 5 years, held out for several thunderstorms and one tornado in OK. But seems like the birds like to use it for a landing pad. Easy to replace. I painted one with bright colors, hoping to keep the birds off. Sure looks good when spinning.
I've had a 5-in-1 station for 5+ years. It has endured the brutal North Dakota winters (lowest was -39/-62 WC) and our summers can get hot and muggy at times. Never had an issue until we moved. During the move 2 of the cups broke off (my error in not packing properly). Bought the replacement cups, easily installed and viola, my station is back up and functioning.
Old one was very hard to remove and getting the new one aligned properly was a task. Wish they were made sturdier. On the second set in 1 year. Good thing I ordered 3. Love my weather station though. Will keep buying them as necessary. Just don't discontinue them as most companies have done.
Took the unit down, cleaned it up, replaced cups and batteries then replaced unit. Easy as that. No other problems!
I had to order a replacement after I "cleaned" the unit while replacing batteries. It was cold and it broke easily. The replacement arrived fairly quickly. I had to apply a little heat to get the two year old one off. I'm in the mountains of NC, so the unit is subjected to a harsh environment. Good product.
Cost effective, easy to install new cups. Unfortunately, they obviously are NOT resistant to UV damage.
Since installing, my outside temperature is stuck at -40 degrees, and the humidity is stuck at 1%. I am afraid to step outside in fear that I will desiccate and crumble into dust. Oh well, I will just have to order a totally new outside unit, unless I can increase my temperature and humidity.
The plastic cups don't hold up well to large hail and 60+ mph wind. Other brands of weather stations I've had had the same problems. Can't fault acurite for this. Easy to replace the part and I'm back in business with my weather station.
The replacement wind cups were delivered in 2 days after I ordered. That was fast and unexpected. Replacement was a breeze. Now if I can just keep the damn crows off the weather station.
I've had my weather station for a bit over two years with no issues or need to replace any parts.
I am unsure how one of the wind cups broke off, but I ordered the new part which was to my surprise not expensive at all.
Replacing it took a bit of elbow grease. The old one was rather firmly in place and took a few hard hits (but delicate) hits of a hammer to get off. I was slightly worried I might break the weather station itself but the old cups came off and the new one slipped on very easy and now works great.
The wind cup unit is surprisingly strong and held up very well in typical summer storms and small to medium sized hail. It took golf ball size hail pounding down for 10 minutes to break off 1 cup off from the air cup unit. This severe hail & wind storm broke several windows, tore off many roof shingles and heavily damaged the vinyl siding and eavestroughs to the point of replacement. The entire weather unit held up well with the exception of the one air cup. Delivery was super fast and installing the new cup unit was super easy and took less than a minute!!! The cost per air cup unit was only $5 so it didnt break the bank.
data of this storm was incredible even with the loss of 1 cup.
Wish they would stand up longer.
It was hard to pull the old one off and put the new one on, but that's probably a good thing considering what it does. I was a little worried about breaking the new one, but I got it on and it works fine now. I'm glad I could just replace the cups and did not have to replace the whole sensor unit.
Love my weather station. Wish wind cups were more durable. Glad more can be ordered. Hard to get old one off and new one on.
After a recent Macroburst with winds recorded at 114 mph + WITH hail, the wind cups were the only damaged part! Ordered them and received in a week. Literally,
a 30 second fix and NO tools required!! Great design!!
Straight line winds of 75 MPH sent the cups in 3 pieces into the neighbors yard. Easy to replace, and was back working in a matter of minutes.
They arrived quickly, instructions were easy to follow to replace the cups. I hope these last longer in hot Florida sun.
Order came quick. Instructions to change clear. 5 minutes and job completed.
Easy to order and quick shipping. I agree with one previous comment that the new wind cup design makes the part more difficult to install as far onto the shaft as the original part. I stopped short of the original position as I feared that I would further damage the unit. I also disassembled the unit and cleaned the solar panel glass and lubed the bearing for the wind sensor.
Shipping costs more than the part.
Arrived promptly. Easy replacement. Up and running in no time.
Too fragile, I have had 3 different stations wind cups shear off and no hail was noted.
The UV protection may be lacking in the plastic which make the cup arms brittle and easy to shear off
We had a hailstorm come through our area with stones approx. the size of golf balls and 80+ mph winds, needless to say the wind cups were destroyed, but the rest of the outdoor unit made it through the storm. I wasn't sure if I would be able to order just the wind cups but I called and checked and it was not a problem. Thanks Acurite!
was out of stock. Notified me when available. Order and was received in only a few day. Quick and easy. Part was broken due to neighborhood cutting tree limbs that came down and broke the part.
Weather station is about three years old. Recently had a hailstorm that knocked off two of the cups. Ordered the replacement part same day, got it the following week. Took longer to put up the ladder than to change the part. Works great!!
Easy to replace. Just follow instructions.
Due to an ice storm in February, an ice buildup on a nearby tree branch melted, fell on the 5-in1 sensor and broke one of the wind cups. However, removing the broken one was extremely difficult and in the process the wind direction vane broke in two. I was able to glue the pieces back together and will see how long it lasts. The replacement part fit very tightly and was a little difficult to fit on the shaft.
FAST delivery and easy to understand instructions.
Well Packaged And fast Delivery
I bought this for my 5-in-1 seeing as the original wind cups did not make it through their first winter. The shipped quickly and work fine but the old ones were difficult to get off, I had to pull really hard and was worried about breaking other parts on the unit, and the replacements fit so snugly they did not go all the way down the shaft.
Broken wind cup, still under warranty. Acurite replaced free with free shipment.
Great packaging, fast shipment, easy instructions. Replaced easily.
Thabk you Acurite.
I received the 5 in 1 for a Christmas gift a year ago from my youngest daughter. I totally love it. We bought a house in November and in the move one of the cups got broke off, I was lost without my weather station. I ordered my new cup assembly and quickly got my station back up and running. Great service and product. Now I'll be able to keep my family and friends informed on the weather. Thanks
A Red Hawk has decided to make my weather station it's new perch and broke off one of the cups. Web site was great and delivery quick. The install was very easy.
I had a limb fall onto my 5-in-1 and destroyed the wind cup. Bought the replacement and arrived in a few days. Super fast delivery and service
Shipped item right away. Arrived in a few days with complete instructions. Thanks again for the super response!
One of the wind cups broke off our sensor and I was hoping to not have to go buy another complete sensor. I very happy to find that Acurite offered replacement wind cups. The price of the replacement cups was great so I placed an order for two sets of wind cups in the event another break occurred. My well packaged ordered arrived within a few days. Following the directions provided, the wind cups were easy to replace.
