    I am not necessarily looking for another expert but I would like to clarify that my machine is a Si-Tex CVS-106LMk II and the solution suggested did not work. There is no message on my machine.

I assume you've tried to change the setting in the main menu, and that's where you're having your problem. The unit could be "stuck" in that mode, and if disconnecting the power, and resetting the unit doesn't help, you could have a software glitch, or possibly a hardware problem, but it sounds like a software problem. The unit has a 2 year parts and 1 year labor warranty- if your warranty's still good, have it serviced, by all means. Here is some discussion of the menu buttons and options:

In the lower left position is the Function key, this key also executes a preset function. The currently selected function is shown on the far right of the header line, and one of ten possible functions can be chosen.
The main menu is reached with a press of the Menu key and then a selection is made and executed with the cursor pad arrows. Another press of the Menu key exits back to the last page. You can also use the rotary gain knob to choose menu selections.
Below these keys is the Range button, a press here brings up the depth range menu box only if you have already set manual depth in the main menu. Otherwise an onscreen message reads simply ‘Auto range’. In manual one of eight user adjustable depth ranges can be set.
Continuing down you’ll find the gain knob. It is used to make gain changes in manual mode, auto mode, and as another means of choosing menu items.

If you've selected a manual range in the main menu, it could be your problem, so check that for sure.
That's all I can think of, so I hope it helps. Those are pretty amazing gadgets when they work!

I am sure you are getting some sort of error message at the time it starts up. Most of the models of echo sounder gives the error message at the start up. Please check the manual provided bellow.

Do not worry about the model as the basi functions, error messages are all the same.

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting

Fridge side is 24 degrees and it is set at 38

You have 2 possibilities here

1) the thermister(electronic thermostat) is off range and sending incorrect info to the control

2)the damper(located in the upper left wall of the ref) is stuck open even after the thermister says its at the right temp. so too much cold air is being circulated

Im not familiar with your particular unit but you should be using a low frequency transducer for water over 500'; something like a 50 kHz transducer or a dual frequency transducer like a 50/200kHz for detail with the high freq. but increased depth range on the lower frequency. As far as setting it to 250 ft, you should be able to use the range feature and adjust the maximum to 250'. typically the factory default is automatic so it will caonstantly adjust the range based on the maximum current depth.

Where can I buy a cover for my Meco Swinger II Smoker Grill charcoal barbecue?

Just about any of the Big Box stors will have a cover to fit your MECO grill. K-Mart, Walmart, Big Lots and even most CVS Pharmacies. As a matter of fact, in my area (VA) CVS sells the grill. Or one just like. Measure you grill (Height & width) and you'll be ready to shop.

Happy Grilling!!

I'm trying to wire a 12v bilge manual pump to a

You run your hot wire to the switch (brown) and black wire to the pump (+ve connection). Then from the pump run another wire to the negative terminal of your battery. I used to use a toggle switch on mine, but I do not use a starter motor, still all the lights, radio and echo sounder are connected to it (via a junction box). The only item I fuse is my echo sounder.

Si-tex cvs 106 mk11echosounder

To re-program the Si-tex CSV-106 depth sounder to feet/meters/fathoms: Push and hold down the MENU key while turning the unit on (POWER key) to enter a special menu. Release both keys after you hear two beeps, almost immediately. Use the LOWER ALARM key to select the desired unit for depth, then turn off the depth sounder. That's it, just turn on again to see the change.
There is also another menu (for testing sounder) available by pressing the MODE and turning on as above.
