Inaccurate temperature reading

I set up the thermometer (model 1542) according to directions. The interior temp is within reason. However, outdoor reading is 63.9 while it is actually 56-58 degrees outside (i put a separate thermometer next to the remote unit). During setup i installed both batteries, selected the code, sat here for a while and then put it outside. thanks for any help you can provide. tjk

Hello, you have to push few second the mode button and after date, hour etc it will be possible to change F for Celsius. He will flashing and after push one of the two button up or down.

SOURCE: My Vornado TouchStone Vortex heat 500 Heater - temperature

After calling Vornado Corporation, they suggested that the room temperature monitor might be failing as it read 65 degrees no matter where you started the heater. I took the unit back to the store I purchased it from, and we unpacked another unit and found the same problem existed. Therefore, the product is not capable of heating a room properly and I will continue my search for a space heater to control the temperature in my upstairs office which does not have air ducts for heat.

If anyone has recommendations I would be interested in their comments.
Thank you.

SOURCE: OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE

Please check the following website for all the info and faq.

Also,

If you have lost the outside temperature on the clock display after replacing the transmitter battery then do the following:

1. Make sure you have good batteries installed in the remote transmitter
2. Remove the batteries from the main clock and keep them out until the clock display disappers.
3. Re-install the batteries in the clock.
4. Wait until the display returns and includes the outside temperature display as well.
5. Set the clock again for current time/date etc.
6. Bingo. You are in business.

SOURCE: I have a skyscan atomic

This is a very common problem that is most frequently caused by the outdoor transmitter going bad. They are surprisingly delicate and don't like getting wet.

You can order replacement transmitters from http://skyscan.info/content/

They only cost $11 and that includes shipping and handling.

SOURCE: outdoor temperature display is incorrect

there is a outside temperature sensor inside the lower front bumper
check wiring harness to sensor, or the sensor is defective

I have a Jenn Air JJW9830DDP double oven electric, and the temperature in the oven is about 100' less than what it reads on the display. I tested the temp sensor and it ready 1073 ohms. Any s


Well, your temp sensors can still be bad. If not, there's always a new control board you buy!

However, I wouldn't drink water from that oasis without making ABSOLUTELY sure I'm not seeing a mirage.

The only common denominators between your upper and lower oven temp readings is the firmware and the oven thermometer you are using to visually check the temps.
What type of thermometer are you using to check your oven temperatures with?
If it's not a digital thermometer used specifically for testing ovens, you might just be leading leading yourself astray.
You need a calibrated thermometer. If I don't have a calibrated digital thermometer on me, I use two or three oven thermometers (the dial type) and average the readings.
It's the only way to be as close as possible with a digital probe.

If you have thoroughly verified that your oven is in fact not reading the correct temperature, then you can adjust it +/- 35 degrees F via your oven's control panel.
To adjust the oven temperature:
1 - Press Setup pad.
2 - Select the down arrow to scroll to the next screen.
3 - Select Temp Adjust using the Quickset pads.
4 - Select upper or lower oven (select models).
-"Set temperature offset using the Upper Set Knob" is displayed.
5 - Enter the desired temperature change using the Set knob.
The temperature can be increased or decreased up to 35 degrees.
The temp. change is displayed at the top of the window.
6 - Press the Set knob to accept the change.

Now, if you are still worried about the temp. reading being off, replace both the upper and lower temp sensors. That's all you can do besides replace the main board.

Outdoor thermometer reads -40 so the climate control system blows heat in the summer

The teamperature on the digital display can say 350 degrees and the oven thermatore that is located in the oven reads 310. Does this oven need to be calibrated? The oven is 6 years old.


The thermometer that hang on rack are Whooly inaccurate. A good one is the TAYLOR brand. As long as things bake within recipe time no adjustment needed but to do it;
  1. Press BAKE

  2. Select the maximum temp. depending on model it either 500 or 550

  3. Quickly (within 5-seconds of setting 550) press and hold the BAKE button approximately 5-15 seconds until "00" or the previously entered temperature adjustment is displayed.

    Pressing longer could cause an F0, F1 or F7 error to be displayed.

  4. Press the UP/DOWN arrow button to change the oven temperature in 5° increments to a maximum of +/- 35°

  5. Press the CLEAR or OFF button to return to normal operation.
But before doing that i suggest a new high quality thermometer that you hang on oven rack

I have an Acurite 822-RX thermometer that shows HH as the outdoor temp, even after replacing the batteries in both the base and remote units. How can it be fixed or reset?


HH means it is showing the high temperature you (most likely accidentally) set with the MAX MIN / + button, which is easy to do when setting the clock. Just press that button again until the reading appears.

Gas pressure


It depends on the indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity. The low side pressure can be in the area of 135# to 145# with an indoor temperature of 80° and 50% relative humidity, and the outdoor pressure can be in the area of 300# to 330# on a 95° day depending on effeciency rating.
If your asking this to charge your a/c this is not how to charge your a/c.
Charging AC by superheat and subcool
First charging a unit by superheat, this is only for Acs with an orifice or capillary tube.
Optimum superheat is 12° to 15° at the compressor or suction line outside the unit.
Hook up your gages and put a thermometer on suction line (large line), start the AC. Measure the temperature of the suction line and read the pressure on your gages. Theres a temperature scale on your gages for R-22 or R-410A the needle will show you the pressure on the outer scale and if you follow it down to the R-22 or R-410a inner scale that is the saturation temperature for that refrigerant, (you can also use a temperature pressure chart), now read the thermometer, let’s say the suction temperature( the thermometer) is 67° and the saturation temperature (the gages or temp. press. Chart), is 55°, subtract the saturation temperature from the suction temperature, 67°- 55° = 12° superheat.
Charging by Subcooling, this is for Acs with a thermostatic expansion valve, it’s common to see a sight glass on the liquid line (on these units with a sight glass just clear it, when, indoor room is at approximate set point of the thermostat). Optimum sub cooling is 12° to 15° at the outdoor unit.
Hook up your gages and put a thermometer on liquid line (small line), start the AC. Measure the temperature of the liquid line and read the pressure on your gages. Theres a temperature scale on your gages for R-22 or R-410A the needle will show you the pressure on the outer scale and if you follow it down to the R-22 or R-410a inner scale that is the saturation temperature for that refrigerant,(you can also use a temperature pressure chart), now read the thermometer, let’s say the liquid temperature( the thermometer) is 100° and the saturation temperature (the gages or temp. press. Chart), is 114°, subtract the liquid temperature from the saturation temperature, 114°- 100° = 14° subcool.

Whirlpool Stove oven temperature not accurate


This unit has a calibration function which can compensate for temperature errors of +/-30 deg F. Hold the BAKE button for 4 seconds to enter this mode. Use the Temp UP/DN buttons to adjust the temperature offset. Push START to enter the new offset.

Also, the typical manual oven thermometers are notoriously inaccurate.

If this doesn't solve your problem, next items may be the temperature sensor or control board. If it is the control board we may be able to repair it for you at www.fixyourboard.com.

Preheat beep indicator is inaccurate


It's working ok. These often beep after a preset time. It may be set to beep at 10 minutes. Not always at the temp set. It is usually close enough though.
