Instructions for replacing the battery and resetting a sensor with out a bar code label.

1. First we will do a quick reset of the Hub.

Unplug the hub for 10 seconds and then plug it back in - making sure the hub is located within 10 feet of the SmartDry sensor located in the dryer.  After a few seconds the LED's should blink while the unit powers up.  Then the power LED will remain on while the DATA LED will go off. 

2. Now remove the sensor from the dryer and remove the four screws from the back cover of the battery cover of the dryer sensor with the supplied screw driver. Gentle remove the cover once all the screws are loose.

3. Gentle pop the battery out of the compartment by prying gently under the battery at the opposite side from the small gold tabs (using a small flat head screw driver).

 

Now replace the battery with a new Panasonic CR2032 being careful to slip the battery under the gold tabs first then gentle pressing into place. (see image below). 

Please pay close attention to the polarity of the battery (positive side up) and the location of the small gold tabs on the positive side of the battery.  The Battery will need to be inserted in the same way.

Once you have replaced the battery (This also resets the sensor) you can then run a short test run of the dryer for 5-10 minutes to see if data is flowing through the hub.

The DATA LED on the hub should flash green every 5-15 seconds when the sensor sends data and when operating normally.

When you stop the dryer you should receive a notifications that the dryer has stopped within 1-2 minutes.

Now replace the battery with a Panasonic CR2032 3.0V battery by gentle reinserting the new battery into the compartment one side at a time.
