Customer Question

I have just changed the batteries on the Aprilaire 8444 and it is now set in OFF mode in the middle of the screen. Was working fine 30 mins ago but showed a low battery level and I decided to replace the batteries as I will be away for a bit. Tried the new batteries somewhere else in case it was a "bad batch" and they were working fine. Don't see rust or anything unusual on the contacts
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: See my message above. Was working fine 30 mins ago before I replaced the batteries
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
