Re: Ramp Setpoint Mode not working

Note that the setpoint that you enter in the Current State Properties table, 65 in your case, is immediately overwritten by the new ramp setpoint when in ramp mode. Things to try: Temperature probe ass...

And after moving the date once, I was very hesitant to throw up another target until...

Re: How to Change the Temperature Setpoints on the Fly?
