Using the Wireless Remote Timer and Thermometer

How do I install the battery?

Remove the battery cover on the back of the thermometer.  Insert 4 AAA 1.5V batteries as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and -).   

There is a strip under the battery cover to prevent battery drain in shipping.  Please remove the strip before continuing with these instructions (you may need to remove the battery compartment to avoid breaking the strip). 

If readings grow dim or irregular, the batteries may need to be replaced.   

To preserve the batteries, turn both units On when in use and OFF when not in use.   

Replace the battery cover.
