The units must be within 330 ft (100 m) of each other. • Make sure both units are placed at least 3 feet (.9 m) away from electronics that may interfere with the wireless communication (such as TVs, microwaves, computers, etc). •U se standard alkaline batteries (or lithium batteries in sensor when temperature is below -4ºF/-20ºC). Do not use heavy duty or rechargeable batteries. NOTE: It may take a few minutes for display and sensor to synchronize after batteries are replaced. •S ynchronize the units: 1. B ring both the sensor and display indoors and remove batteries/power adapter from each. 2. Reinstall batteries in outdoor sensor. 3. Reinstall batteries/power adapter in display. 4. L et the units sit within a couple feet of each other for a few minutes to gain a strong connection. Flashing of the outdoor temperature may be an indication of wireless interference. • Make sure the A-B-C switch in the battery compartments of both the display and sensor are switched to the same letter. You may choose A, B or C; but both units must match to sync up. Sometimes changing to a different channel can help. •W eather Forecast icon predicts conditions for the next 12 to 24 hours, not current conditions. •A llow unit to run continuously for 33 days. Battery removal or resetting the display will restart Learning Mode. After 14 days, forecast should be fairly accurate, however Learning Mode calibrates for a total of 33 days. 14 Troubleshooting Problem Possible Solution Display screen not working • Check that the power adapter is plugged into the display and an electrical outlet. •C heck that the batteries are installed correctly. Batteries may need to be replaced. •R eset the display by pressing and HOLDING the “RESET” button, located on the back of the display. Date and time will need to be entered after a reset. Inaccurate temperature or humidity •M ake sure both the display and 5-in-1 sensor are placed away from any heat sources or vents (see page 10). •M ake sure both units are positioned away from moisture sources (see page 10). •M ake sure 5-in-1 sensor is mounted at least 5 ft off of the ground. No rainfall • Check to ensure the rain gauge stabilizer (plastic tab) has been removed from the bottom of the sensor (see page 7). • Clear debris, such as leaves, out of the rain collector funnel and debris screen. • Calibrate the Rain Gauge (see page 17). • Verify the sensor’s internal tipping lever is moving freely by dripping a little water through the rain collector. You should hear the lever tipping. If you do not hear it, you may need to clean inside the sensor. Video available at www.acurite.com/5in1. Inaccurate wind readings •W hat is wind reading being compared to? Pro weather stations are typically mounted at 30 ft high or more. Make sure to compare data using a sensor positioned at the same mounting height. •C heck location of the sensor. Ensure it’s mounted a minimum of 5 ft in the air with no obstructions around it (within several feet). •Ensure wind cups are spinning freely. If they hesitate or stop try lubricating with graphite powder or spray lubricant.

Do not use caustic cleaners or abrasives. Keep away from dust, dirt and moisture. Clean ventilation ports regularly with a gentle puff of air. 5-in-1 Sensor Care Clean the Sensor Clean with a soft damp cloth. Do not use caustic cleaners or abrasives that will mar the polished surfaces of the rain collection funnel or the solar cell. Scratches will result in decreased performance and reliability. Insect Prevention Insects may cause obstructions and interrupt data by nesting in or on the 5-in-1 sensor. To limit this problem, spray the OUTSIDE of the sensor with a household insect repellent. Consult the insect repellent instructions prior to use. Snow & Freezing Weather The 5-in-1 sensor will not be damaged by freezing conditions. NOTE: If the rain collector cup fills with snow and then melts, it will register as rain on the display. Clean the Rain Collector Cup Remove and empty rain collector debris filter. The debris filter is located in the rain collector funnel. Remove from the top by gently squeezing and pulling out. Clean the Wind Vane & Anemometer Remove foreign matter from the outside of the sensor for free movement of the wind vane and anemometer. If needed, use a small amount of spray lubricant, clear silicone or graphite powder on the anemometer for improved movement. Calibration The indoor / outdoor temperature and humidity readings, and barometric pressure can be calibrated on the display to improve accuracy. Calibration can improve accuracy when sensor placement or environmental factors impact the data accuracy. “, “V “ and “ V 1. To access calibration mode, press AND HOLD the “ buttons simultaneously for at least 5 seconds. ” 2. To adjust the currently selected (flashing) item, press and release the “ “ or “V “ buttons to calibrate the data value higher or lower from the actual reading. V 3. To save your adjustments, press and release the “ ” button to adjust the next preference. The “ ” icon will remain illuminated next to calibrated values. 16 The preference set order is as follows: OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE OUTDOOR HUMIDITY INDOOR TEMPERATURE INDOOR HUMIDITY BAROMETRIC PRESSURE (must be set to MANUAL mode to calibrate)* *To change from AUTO to MANUAL pressure mode and vice versa, press AND HOLD the “ ” button for at least 10 seconds. The display indicates the current pressure mode selected,“auto” or “manual”. 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. Calibrate the Rain Gauge The rain gauge on the 5-in-1 sensor can be calibrated to improve accuracy. Items Needed: 5-in-1 sensor, display, plastic cup, pin, screw driver 1. First, ensure 5-in-1 sensor is perfectly level using built-in bubble level. 2. Place display close so you can monitor it during calibration. 3. Make a pin hole in the bottom of a plastic cup. Hold the cup over the rain gauge and fill it with exactly 1 cup (8oz) of water, allowing the water to drip into the rain gauge. You should hear the internal buckets tip and see water drain through the rain gauge. 4. A few seconds after each bucket tip, the display displays rainfall in approximately 0.01” or more increments. 5. The cup of water should take more than 20 minutes to empty; a quicker period will result in inaccurate calibration. Try to simulate a normal steady rainfall. When cup is empty of water, display should register 1.06” Tips • There should be nearly an equal number of water drops (about 25 water drops) between bucket tips. If not, adjust the calibration screws on the bottom of the 5-in-1 sensor until an equal number of water drops are tipping the buckets. Then, restart the calibration procedure. • If you don’t hear the buckets tipping and see water dripping alternately out of each drain, there may be an issue with the rain gauge or it’s adjustment. See Troubleshooting on page 15. Adjustment If the rain gauge doesn’t register close to 1.06”, make an EQUAL adjustment to the two calibration screws on the bottom of the 5-in-1 sensor. Turning screws clockwise increases rainfall; counter clockwise decreases rainfall. • To adjust the rainfall reading by 2% turn both screws 1/8 of a turn. • To adjust the rainfall reading by 4% turn both screws 1/4 of a turn. • To adjust the rainfall reading by 8% turn both screws 1/2 of a turn.
