Top 20 La Crosse LaCrosse Technology Professional Weather Station - Page 2 Questions & Answers

The instructions for your station call for a specific set up procedure. Batteries should be installed in the transmitter first with time allowed for it to initialize and begin sending data. After installing batteries in the receiver, you should see wind speed and temperature displayed. BUT, here in the real world I have a Lacrosse receiver currently displaying a balmy 67 degrees inside and a not-so-balmy - - outside. I believe the alkaline batteries used in the transmitter lose efficiency or freeze at low temperatures. Warmer weather restores the outside temperature display.

It means OverFLow - the display unit can read from -39.8°F to 139.8 °F and it is getting a signal from the sending unit that is lower than -39.8 or higher than 139.8. This happens when the sending unit goes haywire (or, not likely, when temperature out doors is REALLY lower or higher than the range). Replace the sending unit. If you really like the product, I suggest you buy another of the same model. It will come with a new sending unit and that will be read by both of the displays if they are within 80 ft of the sending unit. Good luck.

You probably need to replace the batteries. Be sure to follow the LaCrosse instructions exactly to get your Weather Forecaster working properly again

The manual for the thermometer is available on the LaCrosse site: . The direct link is .

Put the batteries in the remote(s) first. (If you need to reset the units, pull the batteries from the indoor temperature sensor and the remotes for 10 minutes before restarting.) With the remotes and indoor sensor 3 to 5 feet apart, put the batteries in the indoor temperature sensor. Then wait 10 minutes before pressing any buttons. Once you have confirmed communication between the units, then move the remotes to their final location (not more than 330 feet away minus 30 feet for external walls or windows and 20 feet for each internal wall between the units.)

I hope this helps.

Bring the outdoor sensor indoors. Take the batteries out of the sensor and out of the main unit. Wait 10 minutes. Put the batteries back in the outdoor sensor. Put the batteries back in the main unit. DO NOT PRESS ANY BUTTONS. Wait 10 minutes or until the outdoor temperature shows. Once the temperature shows you may use the buttons to set the clock, etc. If it does not show after 10 minutes, then try again.
