At some point my WeatherRack 2 stopped updating the rainfall. If I move/shake the unit, It updates the value, so I know the internal bucket/sensor is working, but it's been raining since yesterday and it still shows 0 inches. I noticed that there are "Open" and "Closed" labels embossed on the base of the rain collection funnel, but I don't seem to be able to turn the funnel easily and don't want to risk breaking it. Is there really an open/close setting? If something is blocking the rain collector, any clues on how to clear it? Any other thoughts/suggestions?
I had the same problem last spring. It was a oak flower in the bottom of the funnel. I had a problem getting the funnel off too. I just kept working at it until I got it to free. It has some tight tolerances and being plastic you need to keep trying.
