To check this press one of the buttons on the front of the Electronics Module and the indicating LED should illuminate briefly for a single flash. If the LED does not flash or it flashes repeatedly for a short burst (low battery warning) then you should contact Rako Controls. Battery replacement The Rako RCM series of wall-plates are designed to be powered by batteries. The designed battery life is better than 3 years (based on 30 button presses daily) but the batteries will eventually need replacing. In normal use the Led on the front panel illuminates momentarily when a button is pressed to indicate that a (radio) transmission has been made. When the batteries are approaching the end of their useful life the Led will continue to blink after a button has been pressed. When this starts to happen the batteries should be replaced as soon as possible. Always use two CR2016 batteries. To replace the batteries remove the Wall Plate from the wall and unclip the Electronics Module from it’s mounting plate, taking care not to damage the aerial (note that when flush mounted the aerial may be located in a hole outside the back-box). Carefully Slide out the battery compartment drawer. Replace with new batteries ensuring that the positive (+) terminal makes contact with the battery clip and the negative (-) terminal with the pad on the circuit board. To ensure reliable operation always ensure that battery contacts and battery surfaces are kept clean of any grease, moisture or other contamination. Warning Lithium batteries may explode if handled incorrectly. Always dispose of used batteries in accordance with manufacturer’s recommendations.
