SOURCE: temperature readout wrong

Hi, I'm assuming the transducer is in the water when you obtain tthese high readings, if so the transducer is likely faulty. regards Phil

The humidistat changes with home but reads about 20% low. Can the read out be adjusted to more accurately reflect the actual conditions?


A common problem is dirt. Dirt can affect the thermostat's calibrationand interfere with its operation. For example, if a thermostat is set to heat for 70 degrees is really maintaining a temperature of 73 degrees, the additional energy use can increase your fuel bill by as much as 7 percent.
Google your make and model #manual, the manual will let you knw if it can be calibrated.

How to calibrate kenmore meat probe? it says 170degrees when plugged in cool.


170 degrees is likely the minimum it can read. put a container of water in the oven, put the probe in the water, and set the oven for 250 degrees. Watch the probe, and see what temperature it shows when the water boils. Depending on your altitude, it should be 212 or a little less.

How close should the temp control hold the temp


Generally the oven temperature will fluctuate as much as 30 degrees above or below the set temperature. The longer the oven is on, the less the temperature fluctuates. If you measure the highest and lowest temperatures readings with a thermometer after the oven has been preheated at least 20 minutes, you should come up with an average temperature somewhere within about 10 degrees of the set temperature. You can calibrate most ovens up to 35 degrees higher or lower if it is off. Any more than that requires replacing parts.

I have a minimax ch 150 heater and the heater is running but the water coming out is not as hot as it used to be. Though the heater is extremely hot on the outside. Any tips?


Check your SENSOR. With the Minimax ch heater, you might be using an 'IntelliTouch' panel that controls your equipment. If you are, check the reading that the panel says the water temperature is and then check the temperature of the water 'coming out' (spa??) manually with a floating thermometer. When the heater cycles off, check the difference between the 2 numbers. Say the panel says 102 & the thermometer says 95?? - that is a faulty sensor, telling the heater that the water has reached 102, so it cycles off before ever getting hot. If you're not using the IntelliTouch, you will be checking the display panel on the actual heater itself & again the floating thermometer. Now... if the temperature is less than a 4 degree difference you can always calibrate/or have calibrated the heater.

Thermometer not reading correctly


I would guess the outside thermometer has lost its calibration.
Does it seem consistently 5, 10 or 20 degrees off all the time?
Let me know.

Temperature is wrong


Many ranges show a beginning temperature that is higher than actual temperature, then the gap closes as it heats up.
Use a accurate oven thermometer to check your temps.
If it is faulty, it will not recalibrate to offset 200 degrees. You will have to replace the ERC.

Digital oven temperate is wrong


Yes, that is the probe that sends info to the controller.

If it's not bad, then the controller is, but normally it's the probe.

Check that the controller has not been incorrectly calibrated before you change the probe out, although most do not allow a swing of more than 15-20 degrees. Yours may allow more though.

I am guessing you measured the actual temperature, to the set point temperature, with a know good thermometer.
