Search is your friend.

There have been lots of those that failed because of bad solder joints.

When you find the threads, you will find the repair procedures.

Have fun!

basically open your sunglass case and take one screw out.. take out the unit, then take out the temp gauge...carefully. a little bit usually comes loose and you have to solder it back on.. fyi mine had the number 510 on it. It will fix it good as new.. Thats the thread in a nutshell.... hope it helps!
