No their is noadjustment, your temp sensor is going bad and will get to the point where the heater won't start because it will be reading to high to start the heater. This is a inexpensive part and is farley easy to replace. All the info you should need will be in your owners manuel. Good luck.

How to calibrate oven?


Sometimes the oven thermostat or oven sensor can be calibrated wrong, or it may be faulty. If your particular range has an oven that uses an electronic thermostat, and the oven temperature is off by tens of degrees, you probably have to replace it.
On most units that have a mechanical thermostat, you can actually remove the thermostat knob, and adjust the knob to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. On many models, there's a screw on the back of the knob with a small calibration plate or ring. You can loosen this screw and adjust the calibration plate. Remember to tighten the screw again. If yours isn't adjustable, and the temperature is off by a large amount, you should just replace the thermostat.

Or Oven safety valve needs to be checked with multi meter ohms / voltage

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.

Lowest level of 3 zones does not heat.


You should have a trained a/c tech take a look at and adjust the bypass in the attic, it's letting too much air return back to unit not to zone.

In the last couple of days the air temp reading on the dehumidifyer has been off by about 10 degrees compared to the actual temp in the room. Room temp is 10 degrees higher than what is being shown on the...


It may simply be a case of where the unit is sitting, as opposed to where the thermostat is, that you're getting the higher reading from. Is that thermostat subject to direct sunlight? Is it near a heat producing appliance (i.e a lamp, a heat duct or air return duct). Any of these things could account for the difference in temperature. As could restricted air flow around the unit.

Actually, I not sure that the temperature reading plays a big role in the operation of the dehumidifier. As the same LED read out, is also the timer read out.

Of course if you have further concerns about it, you can contact Haier Customer Support at 877-337-3639.

I hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks

Oven temp not correct


One thing you should know about a gas oven is that they do not keep a constant tempature like an electric oven does. So going by a tempature gauge in the oven can fool you. The way a gas oven works is by "average" tempature. In other words if you take the highest and lowest tempature readings and average them out you will get the actual tempature. For example let's say that you set the oven to 350. Well first it will take about 10 to 15 minutes for the oven to properly pre-heat. Once it is preheated you can listen to the gas burner and watch a tempature gauge(flook meter is best). When the gas burner shuts off the oven tempature will continue to rise. When the oven tempature stops rising then you will take that reading. Then wait for the oven burner to come back on again and watch the tempature gauge. When the tempature gets to it's lowest point and stops then take that reading. Do this several times and then take all the tempature readings and add them together then divide that number by the number of readings you took and that will give you the actual tempature. Within 5 degrees is great but anything over 10 degrees can affect your cooking. This will give you an idea if your oven is out of calibration or not.

There is a calibration procedure. The instuctions are located in the owners manual and can be found here http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-85131.PDF

Just go to the "Thermostat Adjustment" section for the proper calibration procedure.

I have a frigidaire stove that heats to 50 degrees hotter than the know setting. Can it be adjusted to read correctly?


There is a calibration method to adjust the oven thermostat plus/minus 35 degrees if it is a digital display. The method varies depending on the model range. This calibration method is used to adjust the thermostat if it is not keeping proper tempature. For example if you are setting the oven to 350 and the actual temp it is keeping is 325 then you could use the calibration method to adjust it plus 25 degrees to correct the temp. Just so you know electric ovens will keep a pretty even temp but gas ovens will vary by 40 or more degrees to keep an "average" temp. For example the burner will come on when the oven is 330 degrees and turn off at 370. 330+370 then divide by 2=350. So a oven thermometer may not show you the temp you set it at in a gas oven but does not mean the oven temp is off.

Rinnai 1004 heats to a temp 4 degrees higher than set temp, adjustment?


You can adjust the position of the room air sensor found on the back of the unit between the heater and the wall. It is a black rubber bulb with yellow wires. There is a few inches of extra wire you can extend higher to get a more accurate reading of room air. While you are back there, check for drafts that will give you false readings.
