Sounds like the humidity sensor is on the way out?

Something definitely is wonder if you can get replacements and will they be as costly as a new Vue?
Thanks Mark.

Hi Dazza, thanks for the info, no I've never updated it but might give it a go, but don't think it will help as it was fine and working ok up till about must be about 3 months ago I noticed those strange readings, so took it all apart and shook out all the spiders, even had one in one of the wind cups it must have got dizzy :-) and several running round the circuit board, anyway put it all back together but still the same.... thanks again for the info... where you go for parts?
