Missing HLF setting on Coal-Trol

Missing HLF setting on Coal-Trol

Hey everyone,

I wanted to play with the HLF setting on my Ts2. However, when I enter the advanced menu it wont cycle to any HLF setting. I've on firmware v2 21. I thought the hlf setting was in that release.

Anywhere else for me to look? I'm trying to correct some nasty overshoot. I have a good 1000CFM fan (canfan) that forces cold air down the stove (controlled by the coaltrol) and returns it back upstairs where the thermo sits. Been running this way for probably 3 years now.

Finally decided to do something about the overshoot. So I timed it. I set the thermostat up 2 degree to 70 degree. The thermostat hits 74 degrees in about hour - 4 degrees over.

2 hours laters the stove is still at 53FR and the temp is now 75. Seems to be too much of an overshoot without ramping down quick enough.

I thought I'd try to adjust the HLF a little bit but I cant find the setting.

NOt sure in your version....
I am assuming you are in the ADVANCED Menu? You have to hold the menu button down for like 15 or 20 seconds for those menu items to appear, I know they moved from the setup menu in Ver 2 to the advanced in Ver. 3. Then scroll thru, it has bunch of settings (don't change any) until you see the HLF.

Try that.

I know I have mine on HLF 2, and it only deviates maybe 1 degree. It bumps the response rate/feed rate faster on temperature changes.

In V2 it will be in the normal SETUP menu, if it is available at all. I'd have to check through some old code archives to see if it is included in the V2 21 build or not. I think it should be.

Be careful with adjustments to that setting. They can result in unexpected behaviors so only change one point at a time and test it for a couple days to make sure you know what it is doing differently and if it is desired or not.
