Errors that you can fix yourself

With the following tips you will be able to fix some common errors. Definitely hold that operation manual ready:

  • If the station does not have any values ​​for the Outdoor sensors shows more, it is probably just the batteries that are too weak. Remove the batteries and place the sensors right next to the station. Now insert new batteries first in the sensors and then in the station.
  • In very cold weather The batteries lose their capacity quickly. If you do not depend on the data from the outdoor sensors, the best thing to do is to bring them indoors when there is frost.
  • Only the rain sensors can cope with moisture. The outdoor sensors often fail when they get wet. Remove the battery and let the parts dry near the heater for at least a week. But don't put it directly on top of one Heat source. After inserting new batteries (note point 1), they should all work again.
  • Note that the sensor and the station need direct visual contact. The radio waves cannot penetrate walls. Therefore, disturbances sometimes occur on, if you change the position of the station or the sensor. Find places where there are no obstacles in the signal path.
  • If you get the impression that the values ​​of the Hygrometers not correct, recalibrate it. Wrap it in a damp, not wet, cloth. After 10 minutes the relative humidity is 100%. Set this value. How to set the device can be found in the operating instructions for your weather station. Repeat the process until the settings are correct.
  • If the barometer is no longer the shows correct air pressure, ask the nearest official weather station in your area for the air pressure and adjust the device accordingly.

Repairs to weather stations

If the measures mentioned do not work and the station was purchased within the last two years, contact the manufacturer. The manufacturer is obliged to carry out repairs within the framework of the statutory warranty. Of course, this only applies if you have not made a mistake during operation. He does not have to give you any new sensors if you get them wet, although the operating instructions indicate that the Sensors not weatherproof are.

With most stations you have the option to buy individual sensors and the base station individually. This is not always worthwhile, as sets are often cheaper than that Purchase of individual components. Under certain circumstances, sensors from other stations will also work with your base station. But there is no guarantee here, you can only test it out.

A dismantling of the stations by individual Replacing electronic components rarely makes sense. You rarely get the right components in stores. Plus, the tiny parts are difficult to solder. Even manufacturers usually always replace a complete sensor or the station instead of repairing them.

Tips to avoid damage

problemHints
Heat or coldDo not expose the station and the sensors to extreme heat or extreme cold. Put all components in a shady place that is protected from rain.
lack of protectionDrag a freezer bag over the outdoor sensors. To prevent condensation from forming, it must be open at the bottom.
battery
  • Change the batteries at the latest when the displays get weaker or when the wireless connection is lost frequently.
  • Check the batteries every six months with a tester. Replace them when the device indicates that they are no longer fully charged.

Most of the weather stations are sensitive to moisture. This is usually the only weak point.
