    I bought a used 1588 and it came without instructions. I've turned it and let it run for a couple of days and and the temp is stable at 98. I'm not sure how to get the temp up. I want to make sure it's set to factory settings 100 degrees. I looked online at GQF and their instructions for the thermostat are for a thermostat with 8 rocker switches. Mine only has 5. I called them and they don't have instructions. Does anyone have one of these and know how to reset it to factory settings, or program the thermostat?

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    I'm sorry I don't know. But I would have thought if you called them, they would have been able to tell you what to do. Interesting!

    I've called them twice on two different issues, and their tech support line is closed for some reason so they recommend talking to an knowledgeable operator. The operators aren't familiar with the older 1588, and they don't seem interested to help much further. I'd think the company would still support or have some familiarity with their older products. That's why I posted here. I'd assume someone still has or is using an older model.

    Thanks for your interest.
