That is most likely the sensor, call the maker of the device and try and buy the sensor.

My acurite 00509 has stopped giving me the correct temp reading. I've put another temp gauge next to it and acurite shows 78* and my othergauge shows 72*. Do I need to return it or what ? Thanks


The indoor temperature and humidity and outdoor temperature readings can be calibrated on the display to improve accuracy. Calibration can improve accuracy when sensor placement or environmental factors impact your data accuracy. 1. To access calibration mode, press AND HOLD the "?", "?", and "SET" buttons for at least 5 seconds. 2. Once in calibration mode, the preference you are currently setting will be highlighted on the display. 3. Press the "?" or "?" buttons to calibrate the data value higher or lower from the actual reading. 4. Press the "SET" button to confirm the calibration adjustment. The " " icon will remain illuminated next to calibrated values. 5. The next adjustable data will begin flashing, indicating it is ready to be calibrated. Repeat Steps 1 - 4 to calibrate additional data. The preference set order is as follows: OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE INDOOR TEMPERATURE INDOOR HUMIDITY BAROMETRIC PRESSURE (must be set to MANUAL mode; see page 12) After 20 seconds of inactivity, the display will save the adjustments and exit calibration mode. Note: Calibrations will be erased if the display is reset or if batteries are removed and the power adapter is unplugged.

Why can't I receive input from the outside sending unit?


Make sure that all the batteries are good!!
This procedure outlines the typical process to pair the sensor and base.
Base Station Battery Installation

·Remove the printed vinyl label from the LCD screen of the base station
·Position the remote sensor near the base station
·Open the battery compartment at the back of the base station and insert (2) AA batteries according to the polarity markings. Replace the battery compartment cover.
·Within a short time the RF signal icon (located to the left of the outdoor temperature channel indicator) will start flashing. This indicates that the base station is ready to pick up the RF outdoor temperature signal from the remote sensor. It will continue to flash for 3 minutes or until the signal from the remote sensor is detected.

Register the Remote Sensor
·Open the battery compartment at the back of the remote sensor and slide the channel selector switch to your desired channel. For the first remote you may select any channel, for additional remotes select any unused channel
·Insert (2) AAA batteries according to the polarity markings. Be sure to install the batteries in the remote within the time that the RF signal icon is flashing on the base station. 1541 WeatherGuide Wireless Weather Forecaster with Barometer

My acurite model75321a1 does not tell out side temperature


I checked my Acurite instruction file and found it rather vague about this issue but based on my experience with a similar system I found that battery changes have to be made at the transmitter first, allowing time for the transmitter to begin sending temperature data. Also, the Acurite instructions suggest use of lithium batteries in the transmitter where extreme low temperatures are encountered. My experience has been that the transmitter stops working at low temperatures so the reading comes and goes depending upon the weather. Currently it is 20 degrees F outside headed for 5.

Remove new batteries from the indoor station. Carefully remove batteries from the remote sensor, then reinstall. Reinstall new batteries in the indoor station. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING FOR AT LEAST 10 MINUTES. You should see the outdoor temperature displayed and can then proceed with other settings.

I have an Acurite 822-RX thermometer that shows HH as the outdoor temp, even after replacing the batteries in both the base and remote units. How can it be fixed or reset?


HH means it is showing the high temperature you (most likely accidentally) set with the MAX MIN / + button, which is easy to do when setting the clock. Just press that button again until the reading appears.

I assume r-22 refrigerant by the pressure... you have a saturate temperature of approximately 41 degree and 71 degrees at the service port this equates to a 30 degree superheat. a condenser saturation temperature of 105 degrees and since the liquid line temp at the service valve is not given only the enterin indoor coil on the liquid line a 96 degree temperature this would equate to a subcooling temperatureof about nine degrees. You have too high of a superheat reading. verify that the bulb for the txv is correctly positioned and insulated. if it is then you need to remove the bulb from the suction line, hold it in your hand to warm it up and see if the superheat changes. you could also have issues with your ductwork. If the supply temperture is around 50-55 degrees then the unit is doing all it can.. Check the txv and the ductwork as the subcooling indicates that the condenser side is doing it's job, but the superheat readings indicate that you are starving the evaporator..
