ProblemPossible Solution

How long does snooze
disable the alarm?

• Snooze function disables alarm for 8 minutes.
• Snooze function can be activated up to 6 times. After the 6th time, the alarm will no longer sound.

No outdoor sensor reception

If the wireless signal indicator shows no bars:

• Relocate the display unit and/or the outdoor sensor. The units must be within 330 ft (100 m) of each other.
• Make sure both units are placed at least 3 feet (.9 m) 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 to 20 minutes for display unit and sensor to synchronize after batteries are replaced.

Alarm clock display seems dark or hard to read

• Verify power adapter is plugged in.
• Increase brightness using +/– buttons, located on the back of the clock.
• The optimum viewing angle for this product is from slightly above it.

Alarm clock screen not working

• Check that the batteries are installed correctly. Batteries may need to be replaced.
• Reset the display by pressing the reset button, located on the back of the display unit. 

Innaccurate temperature

• Make sure both the display unit and the sensor are placed out of direct sunlight and away from any heat sources or vents (see page 8 of manual).

Outdoor temperature is flashing or showing dashes

Flashing of the outdoor temperature is generally an indication of wireless interference. 

  1. Bring both the sensor and display unit indoors and remove at least one battery from each.
  2. Make sure the A-B-C switch on both units match.
  3. Reinstall the battery in the outdoor sensor.
  4. Reinstall the battery in the display unit.
  5. Let the units sit within a couple feet of each other for about 20 minutes to gain a strong connection.
