Which way do you turn the temp. knob

To adjust the temp, which way to lower and which way to raise the temp? All my knob has is numbers and I don't know if #1 is lowest temp or highest...if I want to lower the temp (my fridge is too warm to freeze things) which way do I turn the knob?

Need to know how to change the agle on the blade for a protech 10 in table saw

Hi Ron,

You didn't give your model.

Protech is out of business so I could not find a user's guide for you.

The knob on the front that you use to raise and lower the blade also adjusts the angle. Depending on your saw, normally the knob releases from raise/lower mode to angle adjustment by either pulling the knob out and moving it or by pushing a lever to release it and then moving the knob.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Oven is off 100 degrees. How to calibrate it?

To Adjust the Thermostat


Pull the OVEN TEMP knob off the shaft. look at the back of the knob and note the current setting before making any adjustment. The knob is factory set wit the knob directly under the pointer.


1. Pull of the OVEN TEMP knob

2. Loosen both screws on back of the knob

3. Adjust lower screw so it moves in the desired direction. You will hear and feel the notches as you turn the knob. Each notch changes the temperature about 10 degrees F.

4. Tighten the screws.

5. Return the OVEN TEMP knob to the oven.


Re-check oven performance and make the necessary adjustments accordingly.

For the temperature, to make it colder to we turn the knob towards the higher numbers or lower?

Normally the lower number is more cooling and hence the setting is ideal to be kept at mid point.
In twin door adjustment witth single control lower setting more cooling to freezer and as it goes up the temp of the fridge increases.
So you might need to recheck with this model

My oven won't reach temperature all the time. it

It is adjustable. Pull off the temperature knob behind it you will find the adjustment to raise or lower the temp. You will need an oven thermometer to test after you adjust.

Stove to hot burns everything

This is a simple fix as long as the oven is heating properly and the only problem is that the temp seems higher than what the temperature control knob indicates...

Purchase an inexpensive oven thermometer from the hardware store and place it in the center of the oven. Set the temperature control knob to 350 degrees F.

Check the temperature indicated on the thermometer in the oven after 20 minutes. If it's not within 5 degrees of 350, you'll need to adjust the oven's temperature control.

Turn the oven off.

Pull off the temperature control knob. You can usually pull it off by hand, pry it off with a thin screwdriver, or slide a piece of cord up behind it and pull.

Note which kind of temperature control knob you have. There are two types: The first has a screw in the shaft of the knob; the second has an adjustment dial on the back of the knob.

Adjust the temperature with the first type by turning the screw in the shaft with a screwdriver. Turn it clockwise to lower the temperature; turn it counterclockwise to raise the temperature. Turn the screw just a little bit in the appropriate direction.

Adjust the temperature with the second type of knob by turning the dial on the back of the knob. (This dial is held in place with a screw or a clip that will need to be removed.) Raise the temperature setting by turning the dial counterclockwise; lower it by turning the dial clockwise. The notches are typically in 5 or 10-degree increments.

Test the oven temperature again.

Repeat until you're in the right temperature range.

Good Luck!

If you oven temp is off by +- 50 degrees, thermostat needed to be change. to check and adjust the oven thermostat usually we place the oven thermometer in the center of the oven, run the oven at 350 degrees for minimum 30 minutes and check the oven temperature, It should be +- 25 degrees, if it needed adjusting, there is the adjusting slot screw in the center of the thermostat stem, to adjusting it ( do not turn thermostat stem during adjusting ), turn adjusting screw counter clockwise to raise the the temp, clockwise to lower the temp, turn it a little at a time and wait 15-30 minutes before do the next adjustment until the temp match with the oven knob. To adjust the oven burner air and gas mixture, first turn the air shutter close, you will see yellow flame, then open the shutter until the yellow flame disappear and them open it a little more, now you are done. For the oven uneven cooking? you may have a bad oven burner tube, during operation some of the flame may be lift off, disappear or flame being uneven, you can check it with the kick panels off to see the flame, if these are the case, you needed to change the oven burner tube,
