I bought a DHT sensor with rpi a few weeks ago and have been using it without problem so far. But today it stopped working. When I run Adafruit_DHT, it just hangs. I tried with other GPIOs, but it hangs. What should I do to find whether the sensor is defective?
Use a multimeter to double-check for continuity between the DHT pin and the cobbler gpio pin. If that rings out, then you've probably got a bad DHT. Email email@example.com with a link to this thread and ask for a replacement.
I'll check the sensor this evening again, and will contact the support.
Could you recommend a stable temperature sensor for RPi? I am measuring room temperature every 5 minutes. I found many people have trouble with DHT22. Maybe I would need to consider using a better sensor.
