Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

My Taylor thermometer just froze on LO for the thermo temp.

I tried replacing the batteries, thinking that might help having a fresh power source, but it won't measure the temp. What's wrong with it? Can I fix it in time for Thanksgiving?The numbers on a little piece of paper on the back of it have the numbers: 1470-33; 3007; P2290 . It is encased in a cream colored casing, with grey buttons and I have had it for about 1 year. I got it last Christmas (2007) for a gift, and I just love it. I use it for everything. Is it possible that the cord to the element is damaged somehow (even tho I don't see any splits in the cord) and as I mentioned above in the summarization of problem the thermo temp area on the lower left side stays frozen in Lo screen. I tried resetting in the back, to no avail. Temp up and down still works, the timer works...just the food temp gauge is on the fritz...the part I need the most!

    I have a similar problem, but different

    My remote thermometer froze on high

    The problem, for me, is the probe.

    I took a similiar probe from a competetor's unit and ti worked

    The temperature was exactly the smae - exactly

    Taylor said they no longer made that unit and could not provide a new probe. B S

    I have exactly the same problem as described above with the left side frozen displaying "Lo". I have also changed the batteries to no avail.

SOURCE: Burners shut down at set temp but fan continues lowering temp

the reason he told you not to cycle the power is because some where there is a flashing light that he can decode and tell him where to start looking for the problem. Call him next it happens and don't touch the power or the stat until he gets to see the unit.

SOURCE: RC1 - New batteries fitted but display still blank.

Hi,Not nessarly shot.The stat uses low voltage from the equpitmemt also.You neea a volt meter to check.Remove stat from mounting plate.Check power at terminals RH&W or at RC&G they should read 24volt.If not check emergency switch off or fuse/breaker.

SOURCE: my toyo L-30 reads the

Lo is displayed when the room temperature is below 14F or the heater thinks the room is below 14F, which would be caused by a problem with the room temperature sensor or the sensor is unplugged. 70 is what you have the heater set to maintain. Check the white wire on back of the heater.

SOURCE: Our Honeywell programmable thermostat T8132A 1049

The T8132A thermstat requires 2 AA alkaline batteries for operation as the T8131 uses the 24VAC souce transformer with battery back up. If new batteries did not fix the problem follow product user manual to reset and program the thermostat. This should clear any errors or problems. If the problem persists then replace the thermostat. If you do not feel confident you can accomplish the task then you should call a licensed HVAC technician to troubleshoot the issue as the wrong settings could potentially cause permanent damage to your system.

The Thermo temp flashes HHH ....and the thermometer keeps beeping...??? What do I do!?

That means the temp is higher than the unit is able to detect. If it has been exposed to very high heat then it is damaged. It may still have a bad sensor.

Oven thermometer only displays lo

I just had that LO reading. Pulled back on the tip of the thermometer. Seems I had it inserted into my turkey too far. Probably up against a bone or too close to the center. Good luck! Happy Thanksgiving 2016!

The digital thermometer was flashing "lo". I assumed it needed new batteries and then replaced them. It is still flashing lo, but also showing a C reading. What do I need to do to reset it?

there should be a setting on it that changes the temp from Celsius or "c" to ferinheight and lo means that it currently isn't reading a temperature in the normal range. try running it under hot water and see if it says error or high.

Simply press the small recessed button (a small triangle is pointing it ) directly above the battery door with something slender like a ballpoint pen or a toothpick, while pushing the battery door down, away from the thermometer.
