Braun Forehead Thermometer FAQs

What is the best way to achieve an accurate reading from my thermometer?

Hold parallel to forehead and keep head still. 

Hold thermometer steady. DO NOT swipe.

What is my Braun Thermometer warranty?

This 3-year limited warranty applies to repair or replacement of product found to be defective in material or workmanship. This warranty does not apply to damage resulting from commercial, abusive, unreasonable use or supplemental damage. Defects that are the result of normal wear and tear will not be considered manufacturing defects under this warranty

What should I do if my thermometer is reading an Err message?

This will occur if the ambient temperature is not within the allowed operating range (50 – 104 °F or 10 – 40 °C.)  If this symbol is displayed, ensure the ambient temperature is within the operating range and press the power button to reset the thermometer before taking a new measurement.

What does a flashing display or no display mean when I turn on my thermometer?

A flashing display indicates a system error. We suggest waiting 1 minute until the thermometer turns off by itself and then turns on again. If the problem persists, reset the thermometer by removing the batteries momentarily. 

How do I change the temperature scale from Celsius to Fahrenheit (or vice versa) on my thermometer?

Please remove the battery cover as if you were going to change the batteries.

Toggle the switch that is located between the batteries.

Select “C” for Celsius and “F” for Fahrenheit. 

How do I change the battery on my thermometer?

Remove the battery cover by sliding the cover down and lifting the battery door open. Ensure you follow the diagrams showing where to place the + side of the batteries. This thermometer requires 2 “AAA” batteries.  

How can I view the last temperature taken on my thermometer?

The last reading is automatically displayed for 2 seconds when the unit is switched ON.

How do I store my thermometer?

Store thermometer and lens filters in a dry location free from dust and contamination and away from direct sunlight. Always store the thermometer with the protective cap or with the cradle in place to prevent dirt and scratches from damaging the device.  

Do not store this thermometer in temperature extremes below -13 °F or over 131 °F or in excessive humidity (above 95% relative humidity).  

If thermometer is stored in a location that is cooler or warmer than where it will be used, allow it to acclimate to the room temperature for 10 minutes before taking the measurement.

Does Braun offer a stick thermometer?

Braun does not offer a digital stick thermometer, but we recommend using the Vicks digital thermometers.  They are clinically accurate, provide color-coded fever guidance and fast readings.

Are batteries included with thermometers?

Yes. Two AAA batteries are included with the Braun Forehead Thermometer.

What are the benefits of forehead thermometers? How does a forehead thermometer work?

Similar to non-contact thermometers, a forehead thermometer is a quick and fuss-free way of measuring a child’s temperature that measures the infrared heat waves emitted thru the surface of the skin.  The main difference is that you need to gently touch the center of the forehead to take a reading.  It is a great choice for young squirmy children that are feeling under the weather.
