Higher than normal temp reading during sunny days

Can the motor for the solar fan be replaced with a better one or maybe the actual fan assembly so that the day time temp is acurrate?

Are you sure the fan is working at all? Mine has died after 5 years or so. Now my temps show -40 F year round.

@tcagle: That isn't a bad fan (even if yours died) that is a corroded temp/humidity circuit board. You can order a new one here: https://www.acurite.com/shop-all/weather...

That is for the newer models that are easily user replaceable, but the older ones can have the ribbon cables soldered to the board and work with it as well.

Yes, you can replace the fan - Acurite sells a "AcuRite Iris™ (5-in-1) Wind Cup Assembly Replacement" - it's $20 and it includes the solar powered fan as part of the assembly. All you will need is a philips screwdriver to replace the assembly (just keep the screws together).

They will include a step-by-step replacement guide with the new part - it's really intuitive.

BONUS - once you have it open, check and clean out any dirt/debris that may have accumulated + you can clean the top half of the sensor while you have it apart.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and a multimeter I would suggest you check the solar panel and motor before replacing it - you might find there's a broken connection (Acurite engineered this to be modular - the solar panel + fan is an isolated circuit, you can remove it without affecting the other weather sensors).
