FAQ & Troubleshooting


Possible Solution

Outdoor temperature is flashing or showing dashes, 


No signal from temperature sensor or rain collector

If you are not receiving a signal from the sensor or rain collector, or the temperature is flashing, showing dashes, or stuck, the unit may be experiencing wireless interference. 

Perform a hard reset:

1. Bring both the affected sensor or rain collector and display indoors and position them side by side.
2. Remove all batteries from the sensor or rain collector.
3. Remove all power from the display.
4. Wait 1 minute to ensure that any remaining power has discharged from both units.
5. Inside each battery compartment you'll find an A-B-C switch, be sure these match each other.  Both the sensor and the rain collector must be on the same channel as the display.
6. Reinstall batteries in the outdoor sensor or rain collector first.
7. Power up the display last.
8. Let units sit within a couple feet of each other for a few minutes to ensure a wireless signal is received.
  *The display should receive the signal within several minutes.
9. After a connection has been established you may place the sensor or collector outdoors.
  *If the signal connection fails after the units are separated try a new location for the display unit, the sensor or both.

Loss of signal reception

If the wireless signal indicator shows no bars or has trouble staying connected:

  • Relocate the display unit and/or the outdoor sensor or collector.
    -The temperature sensor must be within 330 feet (100 meters) of the display.
    -The rain collector must be within 100 feet (30 meters) of the display.
  • Make sure the units are placed at least 3 feet (.9 meters) away from electronics that may interfere with the wireless communication (such as TVs, microwaves, computers, etc).  

  • Use standard alkaline batteries (or lithium batteries in sensor when temperature is below -4ºF/-20ºC). Do not use heavy duty or rechargeable batteries. NOTE: It may take up a few minutes for display unit and sensor to synchronize after batteries are replaced.
Inaccurate temperature  
  • Make sure both the display unit and sensor are placed out of direct sunlight and away from any heat sources or vents.
Display screen not working
  • Check that the batteries are installed correctly. Batteries may need to be replaced.
Calibrate the rain collector

No rainfall: has signal from rain collector
Make sure you removed the cardboard piece from beneath the tipping lever. It is only there for packing/shipping purposes and must be removed. If not removed, the tipping lever inside is not able to move freely which ultimately will cause the unit to read 0.00.
Rainfall registering when there's no rain
Make sure the rainfall collector is mounted securely so the collector is not being moved or swayed in the wind. Rain collector should be mounted on a solid and level surface in a clear area away from anything that may block the rainfall.
Can the rainfall collector stay outdoors in freezing temperatures?No, the rainfall collector cannot be used in the winter during freezing temperatures. Water expands when it freezes. If any water is left within the unit during a freeze, it can crack the plastic and permanently damage the unit.
