I have a Linstat...

I have a Linstat Setback programmable thermostat,serial # 038731, model # TH101 A-40. It runs electric heaters on 240 vac. Somehow, it switched over to Celcius display and I can't figure out how to get it back into Farenheit display. Cannot find the manual as the thermostat is many years old. Can you help me?

Contractor's Assistant: How old is the system in question? And have you consulted an electrician yet?

About 15 years old, and no I have not.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, if it's just programming involved. I can also remove the thermostat from the wall if that is necessary.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I have all information and any numbers you need from the back of the thermostat. I thought there might be a switch in back but couldn't find one.
