Crystal based transmitters and some pll based transmitters can stop transmitting or change their frequency sufficiently during hot or cold temperature excursions causing them to go outside the monitored range fo the base receiver which looks like them going off line to the control panel. This is a sign that the particular sensor has a bad or out of spec component in the transmitter board of the sensor. You can resolve the issue by either replacing that unit or by reassigning it to an area that maintains a more moderate temperature profile. Replacing it is generally the best bet so that if it dwells on the cusp of being within the correct frequency range it could cause a false alarm under the right conditions.

### How to change F to C degrees

for fast conversion use this table:

http://www.rapidtables.com/convert/temperature/fahrenheit-to-celsius.htm

The temperature T in degrees Celsius (°C) is equal to the temperature T in degrees Fahrenheit (°F) minus 32, times 5/9:
T(°C) = (T(°F) - 32) × 5/9
or
T(°C) = (T(°F) - 32) / (9/5)
or
T(°C) = (T(°F) - 32) / 1.8
Example Convert 68 degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius:
T(°C) = (68°F - 32) × 5/9 = 20 °C

Tip

### Refrigerator Tip!

Don't set your refrigerator's temperature too low. The colder it gets the more it costs to run. Set the refrigerator's temperature to between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit (3 to 6 degrees Celcius) and your freezer to between 0 and 5 degrees Fahrenheit (-17 to -15 degrees Celcius).

### PSC23NSTESS FREEZING VEGTABLES

Side by Side ModelsIf foods, such as fruits and vegetables, in the refrigerator are freezing, it can be caused by several things. First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
• If food in the bottom of the refrigerator is freezing, this could be caused by a refrigerator not having enough food to absorb the cold air.
• If food in the door is freezing, move the door bins up or down so they are one notch away from freezer vents (Side by Side models only).
• The fresh food control should be at the normal setting of 5.
Freezer on Top Models
First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenehit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
• Since the cold air coming into the fresh food section originates in the freezer above, the rear of the top shelf will be the coldest spot in the fresh food area. Avoid placing delicate items that freeze easily on the back half of this shelf.
• If food is freezing in the produce (fruits and vegetables) or meat pan, it may be that the temperature controls are not set high enough. Since cold air naturally falls, the pans can get too cold if the refrigerator is not running long enough to maintain good air circulation. Adjust both controls up one notch.

### Electrolux ewx14440w washer dryer will not heat water

Hello - Hot water is most often 10 degrees colder when it arrives at your machine from when it leaves your hot water heater. In general hot water is 130 degrees Fahrenheit (54.4 Celsius) or above. Warm water is between 110 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit ( 43.3-32.2 Celsius). Cold water is generally between 80 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit (26.7-15 Celsius). If cold water is below 60 degrees Fahrenheit (15 Celsius), clothes are unlikely to be cleaned very well. After confirming information and it proves to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately. Unit could possibly be experiencing a defective timer, temperature sensor, or water valve.

### Cant program remote

I'm going to assume you are meaning that you are unable to set the "target temperature" for the thermostat?

This remote control system can be thermostatically controlled when the transmitter is in the THERMO mode (THERMO must be displayed on the screen). To set the DESIRED room temperature, press the MODE button to place the transmitter into THERMO mode, then press the UP or DOWN button to select the desired
room temperature. The highest SET temperature is 99 degrees Fahrenheit (32 degrees Celsius).

### Have samsung american fridge freezer with ice dispenser i bought it second hand the problem is the digital display says the freezer is 20 degrees but its freezing inside also every minute or so we hear a...

If it's American, the temperature probably reads as fahrenheit. If so, 20 degrees F is 12 degrees F below freezing which converts to only -6.67 degrees Celsius.

Domestic freezers should be set to -17 degrees Celsius (= 0 degrees F), so the beeper is warning you that the freezer compartment is far too warm. If it's working correctly and has the temperature control set correctly, then it should achieve the correct temperature if you leave it for 24 hours and do not open the door nor try to use the ice dispenser. If the freezer is full of unfrozen items and so has to cool those down as well, then it may take even longer to reach the correct operating temperature.

Te operating manual for your appliance will tell you how to set the temperature correctly and whether it's possible to select between fahrenheit and Celsius scales. Most models allow you to set an override on the beep alarm as well. I cannot guide you on this without knowing the exact Samsung model.

### What is the temperature setting for normal wine cooling?

It's between 55 and 65 degrees fahrenheit. If you're storing a lighter red wine, you'd want to keep it on the lower end (55 degrees). And for the darker (deep) red, you'd want to keep it on the higher end (65 degrees). All white wines should be on the lower end, and below. You can drop down to 50 degrees if you'd like. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
