OK so first, you can only adjust the temperature up to 35 degrees so if it's off by 40 you'll just have to know that it may be off 5 degrees which isn't really noticeable. Either way, attached below are the instructions on how to adjust the temperature.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today and reply back here letting me know with a rating of 1-5 stars (5 being the best).
