Probably the outside unit is exposed to the sun.

SOURCE: Out side temperature reading

Without having parts to try, this would be difficult to know what the fault is. Inside this unit there is a circuit board, and on the outside there is the exernal temperature sensor.

There are only a few things that can go wrong. There is not much that is servicable unless you can find a spare board, or a spare temperture probe. There is very little posiblity that in any practicality this unit can be serviced at the component level.

I would just go out and buy a new unit.

SOURCE: thermometer not reading correctly

I would guess the outside thermometer has lost its calibration.
Does it seem consistently 5, 10 or 20 degrees off all the time?
Let me know.
Regards,

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.

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

Model 00754W4 does not sense outside temperature..new batteries have been placed correctly in both inside and outside units..noW what do I do?


We would recommend a reset of your unit. Please verify that you are using good-quality, standard alkaline batteries such as Energizer or Rayovac, then follow the steps below.
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. Sometimes changing to a different channel can help.
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.
If you need any further assistance, please contact AcuRite Customer Support at 1-877-221-1252 or info@chaney-inst.com.

Try taking the inside unit outside as close to the transmitting unit as possible for three minutes. The signal might lock on to the setting you want to receive.

Why is the outside temperature not displaying on the base?


After a battery replacement, the outside and inside units have to "talk" to each other before you can get a display. Also, the outside unit's batteries have to be replaced first. You should not press any buttons for 10 minutes until the two units have finished "talking"
