The 29 on the thermostat in the picture is indicating the current temperature in the room with the thermostat.

It will not let me change it
Expert:  Handyman Matt replied 11 months ago.

Correct. The 29 you are seeing is the actual temperature in the room. The only numbers that you should be able to change are the two smaller numbers on the right.

Here is the correct manual for your thermostat. My apologies.
