I've owned this model for 5 yrs now and I am very pleased with it except for the Sensor which burned out after three years. That is disappointing. The main unit has gone through a few battery changes but if you follow the directions listed in the review section you will have no problems. It is really important to follow every step and so worth the "effort." Be careful that you get fresh batteries. Don't be fooled into thinking your unit is burned out if you recently put batteries into it and it stops working. That happened to me recently. Added new batteries from KMart in July and by October they were depleted. Had to put new ones in again and unit is working just fine.
"Complex Battery Change/Outdoor Sensor's Do Not Last"
I've had this unit for some years now and, when it works, it is great. However, as was mentioned by others, the battery changes are a major point of contention i.e. overly complex. As well, the outdoor sensors DO NOT LAST! I'm on my third one and it is apparently kaput. I have always had them sheltered from the rain and snow, so them getting wet is not the problem. I can provide a picture of the setup if need be.
I would not purchase this product again and would have gotten rid of it after the second outdoor sensor quit working except this was a gift from my daughter. That said, three sensors is enough...
Incidentally La Crosse, these are the instructions that came with my unit...they do not match yours given in the reply to Bill March's review on 3/13/2017.
Alkaline batteries are recommended for use in both units. Avoid using rechargeable batteries.
NOTE: Do not set the clock until the outdoor temperature is displayed.
1. Place batteries in the outdoor sensor first, then into the atomic clock. DO NOT PRESS ANY BUTTONS FOR 10 MINUTES.
2. Once the batteries are in place, all segments of the LCD will light up briefly. Following the indoor temperature, date, weekday, and the time as 12:00 will be displayed. If they are not shown in LCD after 60 seconds, remove the batteries and wait for at least 60 seconds before reinserting them. Once the indoor data is displayed user may proceed to the next
3. After the batteries are inserted, the atomic clock will start receiving data signal from the sensor. The outdoor temperature should then be displayed on the atomic clock. If this does not happen after 2 minutes, the batteries will need to be removed from both units and reset from step 1 and the signal reception icon is no longer shown.
In the event of changing batteries of the unit ensure that the batteries do not spring free from the contacts. Always wait at least 10 minutes after removing the the batteries before reinserting, otherwise start up and transmission problems may occur.
I have been very pleased with the functions of the clock. You need to spend some time reviewing the directions, not as intuitive as much software is today. However if you take the time to follow directions I have been pleased with the outcome.
I would rather see the outdoor transmitter water proof instead of water resistant. Look for a place outdoors that will keep it out of rain/water.
