Fixed old thermo/hygro that was way off
« on: June 26, 2017, 04:02:27 PM »
I have a tower thermo/hygro from around 2009 that was 3 F high on temp and way low in the day on humidity. I used the soldering iron to redo the connections, and now my sensor is accurate again. If you have old sensors that have died, or are off, try heating up the humidity and other solder and see if they don't come back to normal.

IF anyone tries this on a broken sensor let me know if it worked... You can get a soldering iron for $3 at Harbors Freight.

Outdoor #6 is the repaired sensor...
