Acurite Weather Station Thermometer Is Not Working
There are quite a few reasons why the thermometer may not work. One of the reasons can be related to the batteries. Maybe the batteries in it are dead. So, check that first. There can be another reason behind it and that is maybe the thermometer is not calibrated the way it should be. To do that, follow the instruction manual.
If none of the above solutions fails to do the job, maybe it’s time to replace the thermometer. However, consulting with an expert is recommended before making any replacement decision.
There can be any form of reason behind outdoor temperature not working properly. However, if you are facing this, check if the batteries are properly installed or not. Also, check if the thermometer is properly plugged in or not. If the problem is still there, try placing the thermometer somewhere else as it may fix this issue. If that doesn’t work out, you may have to go with a replacement.
Acurite Weather Station Sensor Is Not Working
If the sensor of your weather station is not working properly, go restart it. But if the problem is major, restarting won’t help. You will have to reach out to a professional in this regard.
To sync both the sensor and the display-
- Bring both the display and the sensor and bring out the batteries or unplug the power cord.
- Change the A-B-C to both the units to a newer A-B-C channel. After that, press the reset button and hold it that way for at least 20 seconds.
- Insert the batteries inside the sensors.
- After interesting the batteries, check if the red light on the sensor light up or not. It will light up within 18 seconds approximately and it can’t stay that way continuously.
- Insert the batteries into the display and soon after that press the reset button and hold it for 20 seconds.
- Now, keep both the units that way but a bit apart from each other for at least 5 minutes or keep it that way until you get to see a solid signal.
However, if the issue is still there, call an expert.
To get rid of this problem, first, check if you have set any alarms before. If yes, stop it. Or check if there is any other wireless radio frequency device nearby because it can detect that thus as a result it will keep beeping. You will have to deactivate any one of the devices to solve this.
Otherwise, open the back cover of the weather station. There you will find a black wire. Cut that and the problem is solved.

If you found the rain gauge not working properly then-
- Check if the A-B-C switch in the compartment of the battery of both the display and sensor are configured with the same letter.
- Move the display and the sensor to a newer location.
- Both the units have to be placed at least 3 feet away from any other electronic device.
- Check if the batteries are working or not. Use alkaline batteries and using rechargeable or heavy-duty batteries aren’t recommended. However, if you change the batteries, approximately it will take 5 minutes for both display and the sensor to sync.
- Make sure to put the rain collector on a flat surface to get accurate results.
- Make sure the rain collector isn’t placed in a lower area.
- If there is dirt, clean it because dirt doesn’t let a rain gauge work properly.
If the wind speed doesn’t work-

- Make sure the connections are secure. Bring out the batteries from both the sensor and the winding assembly.
- Then you have to unplug the connector and after unplugging, keep it that way.
- Then connect the connectors again and install the winding assembly as it was.
