I have two Emerson thermostats in my home /C. Someone messed

Customer Question

I have two Emerson thermostats in my home for A/C. Someone messed with one and put various temperatures for various periods of time. I am not technical at all and now I can not get one of the thermostats to work. I says temp hold 77 and I can not get it to do anything.
I want to eliminate all the temperature settings on it and just operate it manually to wherever I want to set it, day or night. Can you tell me how to do that?
