SOURCE: Wireless thermo clock not reading outside temp

I've had a similar problem with another model, an Oregon Scientific Model IWA-80055 Wireless Thermo Clock, in which when I replaced the batteries in the remote sensor, the clock would not read the temperature from the remote sensor.
I found it fairly consistent to solve this by taking a battery out of place in the clock and putting it back in.  Unfortunately this also messed up the clock's time and date.  This is also in the instructions catalogue for the device, check and see if yours gives a similar solution.

SOURCE: dashes in my outdoor weather reading of Oregon Scientific station

The signals are not being received by the main unit. Try to reposition the unit or move it to a different location. Also make sure the antenna is in the clear and not next to any thing like a cordess phone or charger as these can make RF noise that can block or cover the needed signals.

SOURCE: ONLY SHOWS INDOOR TEMPERATURE DOES NOT SHOW OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE

I have a similar device and the instructions say to remove batteries from both units and wait for 10 minutes without pressing any buttons before installing batteries first in the remote unit then the indoor unit. The outdoor and indoor units have to "talk" to each other before getting in the mood to display temperatures.

Check the batteries and then you can reset the device to detect all the sensors. If that does not work, contact the manufacturer for a replacement.

How do I get the -- away and get the outdoor temperature to work?


You may have to "reset" it by removing both indoor and outdoor unit batteries, waiting briefly, then reinstalling batteries in the outdoor unit followed by the indoor unit. After awhile, the outdoor unit should begin sending information to the indoor unit.

Oregon scientific model no rar186 how to set up outdoors sensor


I have had this Oregon Scientific model RAR186 unit for years and it works great. The only issue I ever have is when the batteries need to be changed in the remote sensor unit (Oregon scientific model #THN122). It never fails that once I change the batteries that the unit does not send a signal to the base unit. I will often hit the reset button and change the channels on the remote sensor before I finally remember that you need to do the following to get the sensor to talk to the RAR186 base unit:

On the base unit (RAR186), hold down the CHANNEL and MEM buttons for at least two seconds.
You will then see a graphic appear above the channel number that shows that it is searching for the sensor.
Within a minute, you will then see the temperature displayed for the sensor showing that they are communicating.

This is buried in the manual that you probably discarded as did I.

Apparently, if your sensor is broken, you can either search to find a new sensor of the same model or also use the following sensors: THC138, THGR122NX, or THN132N
I have not needed to replace the sensor as once I found the instructions to reset the communication between the sensor and base unit, all was fine. Hope this helps someone. I wrote this instruction using a Sharpie on the inside cover of the sensor since you have to remove 3 screws to replace the AAA batteries (2) in hopes I will remember next time and not waste my time searching the internet and not find the answer. Good luck!

Model no 217s31 does not display outdoor temperature reading.


As much as it sucks to do, you have to reset the base and the temperature sensor. When you do it, keep the temp sensor next to the base until the base recognizes it.

My oregon scientific indoor outdoor weather station with atomic clock just stopped picking up the outdoor readings, it won't switch to that channel any longer. tried removing and reinstalling the battery,...


I had the same problem, Since the outside temp wouldn't read, I figured it was the outside unit batteries. Went through half a dozen AAA batteries and wouldn't read. It was the indoor unit. Had the same bats I installed 3 years ago. DUH! Replaced the AAA, and all was well. When the inside batteries die out, it has just enough juice to read indoor temp, but not enought to sense exterior signal.

I changed batteriers and now I can't get a reading from the remote. I have hit the reset on both units. Maybe not in the righ order.


I believe they ask you to press the reset button on the main unit first, but that may not be your problem. Double check the batteries to make sure they are installed correctly. If one of the batteries in the outdoor sending unit is in backwards, it will not send the outdoor data. On the indoor unit, there is typically one battery that is used for receiving the signal from the outdoor unit. If all of the batteries are in correctly but that one, you will see the display and the indoor temperature information, but the outdoor information will not be displayed. Also, make sure the units are close enough to transmit.
