Please follow these steps:
if it is a dial type control then:
Some models have the calibration adjustment on the underside of the knob itself. On this type of arrangement, the loosening of the dial plate and moving it one way or the other will change the temperature reading on the dial once reinstalled.
Other control designs have the temperature calibration screw down the center of the shaft. These usually require a special small screwdriver to access it. See below for a link to a detailed calibration method for one brand of oven thermostat.

Electronic Control Calibration
The following procedures are designed to provide an general idea how calibration adjustment of the oven temperature display on many electronically controlled (ERC/EOC) ranges and ovens is done. The actual procedures vary from model to model so check your owner's manual.
If the temperature is out more than 35°F, the oven sensor or the electronic control may need to be replaced to correct the inaccuracy.
General

1. Press BAKE

2. Select a temperature of 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 or turn the set knob 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.

My Pentair Mastertemp 400 temperature is reading 15 degrees too low. I've replaced the thermistor already. Any ideas?


Your problem sounds like a faulty control board. I replaced the high limit switch, the thermistor, and the control board in an attempt to resolve an erratic temperature reading (plus and minus 1 degree).
It caused the heater to turn off and on constantly when the target temp was reached. My successful solution involved replacement of the two brown wires that connect the control board to the thermistor. The wires were ok but the connector(s) were not. The thermistor output is very small and the contact must be solid in order for the control board and thermistor to communicate. As for the price of the board...it is closer to $300. The one I purchased (and didn't need) was about $275. Seems like you have done everything except change out the board. It doesn't sound like your problem involves corroded wires. Good luck

Dryer will not start display works, when i push the start button it just beeps and does nothing, shows a E01 code.


Hi, this is what the error code means,

E1 or E2 Thermistor Failure The dryer will not operate if the exhaust temperature drops below 18 degrees F. or exceeds 250 degrees F.

When the thermistor circuit is open (>50K ohms), the error code E1 flashes in the display.

When the thermistor circuit is shorted (<500 ohms), the error code E2 flashes in the display.

Normal thermistor resistance values:
60 degrees F. - 15.3K ohms.
70 degrees F. - 11.9K ohms.
80 degrees F. - 9.2K ohms.
Hope it helps.

Have pentair easy touch controls just installed new water temp sensor. spa is 88 degrees but master temp heater shuts off because it reads 104. what should i check? the thermistor/


If the Easy Touch is reading the correct temperature, but the heater is not - you need to double check the temperature of the pool water with a standard pool thermometer.
Other things to consider:
1) The water is traveling too slowly through the heater. If the water is heating too quickly, then it will shut it off. If it takes a while for this to occur, then this would not be the issue.
2) Thermostat/thermistor is incorrectly reading the temperature of the water prematurely shutting the system down.
Make sure you really are checking the temperature of the water and matching this temperature up with one of the two readings that you are getting. Don't just take the word of the displays on either unit.

Pentair Master Temp Heater is not heating and reading 126


Definitely bad thermistor Pentair reps have seen this happen a lot. Lick finger and touch the two contacts where the thermistor plugs in it should fire up if it's a bad thermistor. If you do an ohm reading you'll find that the ohms do not correlate with the temperature that's displayed. I just trouble shot one and I'm getting 51.2 ohms which equates to 10 - 20 degrees Fahrenheit which is obviously not what is being displayed because it's 126 which is a common number that's displayed when a thermistor is not reading properly

We have an he3 dryer, it keeps stopping mid cycle and the display reads E1


Hi

E1 error means its a Thermistor Failure. The dryer will not operate if the exhaust temperature drops below 18 degrees F. or exceeds 250 degrees F.

When the thermistor circuit is open (>50K ohms), the error code E1 flashes in the display.

When the thermistor circuit is shorted (<500 ohms), the error code E2 flashes in the display.

Normal thermistor resistance values:
60 degrees F. - 15.3K ohms.
70 degrees F. - 11.9K ohms.
80 degrees F. - 9.2K ohms.

Skil 2100daf angle finder


I was trying to reset the zero on my angle finder. It's a Powerfist Digital Angle Finder, the same as the Skil 2100.

After turning the unit on, if I press the Miter and Hold button together and hold them, the unit goes into 'calibration' mode. (The display flashes 0.0). If you do nothing, it will always stay in this mode forever after that.

You can then reset your unit - it takes time however and patience.

With the aid of a large protractor, draw angles on a large sheet of paper (I used a couple of 11 X 17" pages) from 0 degrees all the way up to 220 degrees.

Turn on your angle finder and make sure the numbers are flashing 0.0. This will be your 0 degree reading. Hold the finder closed and press the Hold button once.

The display will now read 10 degrees. Open up the finder until it matches your 10 degree marks on your paper and press the Hold button again.

The display will now read 20 degrees. Open up the finder until it matches your 20 degree marks and press the Hold button again.

Continue setting your angles in this fashion up 'til you reach 220 degrees. The next button press will close the calibration cycle and the numbers will stop flashing.

Your unit is re-calibrated. Now, if it's off - you've only yourself to blame.

Good luck!

Frigidaire Upright freezer with Beeping Display


the thermistor is most likely bad. you would have to take an ohm reading of the thermistor and check the tech sheet to see if it is in range. The thermistor is $50 to $75 part.
