Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

This unit has 2 thermostats. One behind each access panel. Once you have the panel off and the insulation removed you can turn the temp dial with a small screwdriver.
