Set Alarm to Custom Minimum/Maximum Temperatures for Fridge and Freezer Thermometer

Follow

When setting the custom minimum and maximum alerts for the fridge and freezer thermometer model 00986, the default feature for sensor #1 (refrigerator) is a minimum of 33ºF/maximum 40ºF. Sensor #2 (freezer) will default to a minimum -22ºF/maximum 0ºF. 

To set the alarms to a customized min/max temperature:

  1. Press and hold the bell #1 button until the display unit beeps. Where the current temperature was, the maximum alarm temperature will blink.
  2. Use the + or – buttons to change it.
  3. Press and release the bell #1 button. The minimum alarm temperature will blink.
  4. Use the + or – buttons to change it.
  5. Do this same process using the bell #2 button to customize the maximum, then minimum alarm temperatures.

NOTE: When the unit is in a normal operating mode (not in alarm set mode), the min/max readings to the right of each current temperature reading are the min/max temperature recordings.

The display will begin to single beep repetitively for one minute once the high or low threshold on Sensor #1 has been met to trigger the alert. The display unit will continue single beep 3 times every minute until the alarm #1 button is pressed. 

The display will begin to double beep repetitively for one minute once the high or low threshold on Sensor #2 has been met to trigger the alert. The display unit will continue double beep 3 times every minute until the alarm #2 button is pressed. 

The alarm icon on the display will continue to flash when the alert is active and will turn off once the alarm button is pressed to disable the alert. The button will need to be pressed again to turn the alarm on.

Both alarms sound at the same decibel.
