hold temp

I just installed a Coal-Trol (V3- 078 TS2) this summer and finally got to try it out. One thing I can't find is a way to turn off the daytime and nighttime setback feature. Right now I would like to just set one temp for the whole day. I am looking for somewhere in the menu for a hold feature. On page 9 in the manual it says "H" for hold temperature setting but I can't find any other reference to it. How do I turn off the setbacks?

Thanks in advance

Press and to hold the Menu button for a few seconds, then scroll thru the menu to the HOLD Y/N? . I Think.

If you can't find a hold feature, just set the day and night temp the same.

WNY, don't have that menu option on my unit

TSB, I'm trying to make this easy for the wife (computer challenged) and that would require her to set the temp in 2 places instead of one and she would also have to find the set point screen. I thought there would be a spot on the menu somewhere to do like WNY suggested, but that isn't in my menu choices, or at least I can't find it.

I do thank you for the reply though

press the Menu button under the ? icon. then keep pressing it to go to each setting until you get to HOLD. then you can use the up or down arrow button to change the setting, then menu button again to exit. once you get out to the temp display your out of the menu.

GettingStoked, Don't have that option on my unit. You must have a different unit than I have.

The way I use my Coal-Trol is to set the day and night temps.
I use 73 day and 70 night. If I or my wife feel a little hot or cold
we just bump the up or down to raise or lower the temp. The
control will revert to set temperature the next time it should change
from day to night or night to day.

Or just set the setback temps the same, then if you need it warmer, just have her push the up arrows a couple degrees, it will setback at the next time slot, but might work.

With the setback, it does take a while to change temps and sometimes overshoots if it can't satisfy within a certain period
thats whye I just leave mine at a set temp.....

The permanent hold feature is only available on the TS2ES model thermostat (4 setpoints weekday and 4 weekend).

For the 2 setpoint model I'm afraid you will have to do what others have said here and set both setpoints to the same temp and use the temporary hold (adjust the setpoint from the round robin, it will hold at that setpoint until the next programmed setpoint rolls around). You can minimize how often the manually adjusted setpoint is killed by the program by setting the times on the programmed setpoints to be one minute apart.

If you want the permanent hold feature we can reprogram your unit with the TS2ES software for a small fee (don't know it off hand, have to find out, PM me if you're interested).

I want to thank everyone for their input. Guess I will have to teach my wife how to set the temps.
