Yep I had that problem recently with my receiver, sometimes alarm was audible sometimes not. I thought maybe I just wasn’t hearing it so paid closer attention and it was malfunctioning, they sent me a new one. I did not get mine wet or drop it.

Thank you Karen! I am having the same issues in addition to losing the upper range (high) line on the Trend Graph. I went to the link you provided and submitted for a replacement. Hopefully all will be well when I receive the replacement.
