Maplin Weather Station - Temperature Gauge Reading.

Recommended Posts

Hello

I was wondering if anyone can offer some advice on how to solve a problem with the temperature gauge on my weather station?

I have one of these https://www.maplin.co.uk/p/maplin-professional-solar-powered-wi-fi-weather-station-n23dq and the temperature sensor seems to have gone.  It's currently reading 19.5c, when actually it's 11c.  It has been like this for a few weeks, so I contacted Maplins to see if they could direct me towards spares, as it is out of warranty.  

They have come back via email today saying they do not keep spares or know where to get them from.

Any advice on spares or how to get it working?

Thanks in advance

Darren

Hi Darren, take the batteries out of your sensor and weather monitor for 24 hours, that will allow the device to reset to factory default...hope this helps.

Thanks for that, I will try it at the weekend, weather dependent.

Is the cover on properly on your weather sensor? Is your weather sensor near anything that produces heat? like an outside boiler...

I have one of those stations with a faulty temp sensor, will have to try and find the link somewhere but you can buy a new temp/humidity sensor and then solder the new one on if your any good with that kind of stuff.

Its probably your only option as Maplin won't do bugger all.

Have a read through this, I think there are some links on replacement sensors

Guys

Just logged back in and thanks for all the help so far.  Just hope the weather at the weekend allows me to take a look and try out some of these suggestions.

Regards

Darren

I'm sorry to say I have returned two of these stations to maplins both with faulty temp sensors. Luckily both in warranty, so I got a refund for the second replacement unit

and I got a vantage vue instead, so far it's been a lot more reliable.

Some parts for the N23DQ are available on EBay

Did you manage to get to the root cause of the problem? I have the exact same station and I am experiencing the same issue.

if it is always off by the same amount have a look at the calibrate option.

if you can adjust for that much error on the console?

Just seen on the news that Maplins have gone bust, don't suppose the guarantee on their own brand keyboard I bought from them last week is worth much.

I have tried this and actually, in this colder weather the UK is experiencing, it's not fair off.

      Hello everyone!
       
      I own a Hama EWS-180 temperature meter which has a wireless sensor to measure the outside temperature. The only place I could place it was outside on the grass and today someone mowned the lawn and along with it the sensor :/ I've searched but couldn't find a replacement sensor to buy, so do you have any ideas where can I buy one?

      Hi guys,
      I'm running Windows 10 and am trying to record my current audio for TeamSpeak but I cannot get Stereo Mix to show up on my "Recording Devices". I do have "Disabled Devices" ticked but still it won't show up.
      Any ideas?
      Thanks!

      Thought a thread discussing the current global air temperatures and predictions might be of some use. By predictions, perhaps the climatically near term (next 30 years or so) would be best.
      Anyway, to start off, the NOAA State of the Climate report has been released for May. Here are some of the details
      http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/sotc/global/2013/5
       
       
      I think it's quite interesting that we've managed the 3rd warmest May on record and 8th warmest year so far despite what are almost Nina conditions and plenty of cold spells around the northern hemisphere.
      Seems unlikely that we'll see a top 5 year with ENSO neutral/Nina conditions predicted to remain during the year.
       
      So what do people think? Will we see new record highs before the decade is out, perhaps during the next El Nino? Or pronounced cooling being felt due to the quiet sun? Or just continue posting top 15 years until a change arrives in the 2020s?

      Hi guys
      I got a Fine Offset WH2080 for Christmas and was very happy with it, loved the USB feature being able to update my twitter and use Cumulus, all was going swimingly until new years when the Anemometer packed in. A few questions
      1) Is the reliability of this model good or are there common problems? Reviews seem fine on the internet
      and 2) I have a budget of around £200, however if it was a really good one i could squeeze further than that, im really looking for one with USB connectivity however this is not crucial, i notice the Davis Vue is very good but without the pc interface at base cost.
      If anyone could help me i'd be very greatful, would love to have a station set up for the potential of mid january onwards
      Thanks in advance
