I bought this for our RV refrigerator. We have a wired thermometer but I wanted a wireless type to get rid of the wire from the sensor to the display that runs under the door gasket. I was a little skeptical that a wireless thermometer would work but it worked so well I could bring the receiver in the house and watch the refrigerator cool down the night before we left for a trip. The display has magnets for mounting that don't stick to a our fridge (all plastic door), we just stick the display to our stove cover as its metal and right over the fridge. The remotes have two mounts; a suction cup and a spring clamp. The display has a min/max function, alarms and it's large enough to be seen easily. All-in-all its perfect for our needs.

I'll preface this by saying I bought this b/c my relatively new fridge seems to hold temperature poorly, so I've had a small mercury type fridge/freezer thermometer (hereafter referred to as "Mercury") since shortly after I bought it. The problem with these is that you have to open the door to read it, and I wanted something that I could have a Min/Max reading throughout the day to note down in case I need ammunition to use against the warranty company. Being able to monitor both fridge and freezer temps is a big plus!

BOTTOM LINE: for those not wanting to read my drivel below -- The AcuRite 00986, after a week of use, works great for me... note that I had no battery issues like some have had. See next part...

BATTERY TIPS: doing a Google search on battery characteristics, I found information [link removed by Amazon...] on Alkaline versus NiMH versus NiCd versus other battery chemistries. One of the very useful pieces of info was operating temperature range. Of note: Lithium operates down to -40C (-40F). Alkaline: 0C (32F). NiCd: -40C. NiMH: -20C (-4F). Well, I have a zillion NiMH rechargeable batteries for kids toys and since I really only care if the freezer goes above a few degrees F, then I figured I'd try NiMH for my sensors, before shelling out $$ on the Lithium AAs. Results: my freezer sensor has captured a temp as low as -13F, so I'd say the NiMH option was a smart move. Even if I have to change the batteries weekly, I swap them out with another set of NiMH and put them on the charger for a few hours. So, my advice to you is to get an inexpensive NiMH charger from somewhere ($10 maybe) and a package of at least 4 (~$7-10), but 8 would be nice, NiMH batteries. I'd recommend any low-discharge NiMH, such as Sanyo Enloops.

I've had this installed for about 1 month. Both transmitters and receiver are working well. The freezer chest transmitter is located on the basememt floor about 10' (below)from the receiver on the main floor and the 2nd transmitter is in my frige on the same floor (2nd) within 15'. All working OK. So far, I can recomend this product.

I found this to be an awesome product for the money and for even more money it would be worth it. I read terrible reviews about the Chaney thermometers but like the new LG Refrigerator I put this thermometer in they are both great. What customers have to realize however is that the temperature in either a freezer or refrigerator changes as the compressor cycles and as the defrost cycles. The walls where one might stick the suction cups are usually warmer than the interior. The wetted suction cups stuck hard and fast. Using a good calibrated other refrigerator thermometer and putting the Acu-Rite next to it on a shelf the readings were exactly equal. Then putting the Acu-Rite 14 inches away from that other thermometer and on the interior wall about 1/2 way toward the back the temps run from 36 to 43 depending. The main thermometer in the center ofr the refrigerator always maintains an even 34 as it is set for. Freezer set for zero runs from -1 to +6. Again normal operation. I have the readout module magnetically attached to the side of the refrigerator. It is not made to transmit through walls or into another room so if it works for you like that all the better. I like it on the side of the refrigerator.

"Designed to succeed, built to fail."

In brief: This thermometer is comically inaccurate and devours batteries like a teenager does a bag of potato chips. The senders update the display every few minutes (according to the LEDs) but lag behind actual temp changes by about an hour. The high number of 5-star and 1-star ratings with not so much in the 2-star to 4-star range strongly suggests to me that these are designed to work, but many fail after delivery: A manufacturing Q/A problem. I gave mine some six months of trial before writing this review--I really wanted it to work--there are very few products on the market with this functionality.

This device persistently shows temps in a broad range of incorrect values, from 15F higher than actual to 10F lower than actual. I verified this primarily with my older analog thermometers already in our freezer and fridge, but also by observation: It reported temps of 35+ in freezer, but everything was frozen solid (analog said 10F) and in fridge section it reported 25F (analog said 35F) yet milk and water in the fridge was still liquid. I pressed "reset" on the display unit when I saw these wild values and they were redisplayed a while later--usually about an hour later, even though the senders were blinking more often than that.

We have a regular GE freezer/fridge and the Chaney display unit is right magnetically attached to the front door. The sender units are on shelves as close to the display as possible. Moving the senders outside the fridge resulted in them reporting +/- 10F of actual room temps (measured with two analog and one other digital thermometer).

Initially I installed the unit with all (pricey) NMH batteries.
