Hey guys I wanted to share a recent issue I had today with my Avallo to help you guys from a mini heart attack. Well here in Derry, NH I loose power a lot in my house and my old humidifer would need to be turned back on after a power outage so when I first lost power with the Avallo I was happy to see it auto starts back up which is great incase I'm ever away on vaca or something. Anyway I lost power last night and since it auto starts and I don't check it right after the outage anymore I didn't even think about it. Well on the way out the door this morning I heard the fans running and just thought it was normal operation but when I got home from work today I heard them still running and checked the humidity. This is where the mini heart attack hit. It was at 75% and the Avallo Setting was at 99% I immediatly paniced and pushed the down button a bunch of times and got nothing it sat at 99% I unplugged it and plugged it back in and still 99%. I called Matt from Avallo and he was very helpful he said to hold the down button for a min. becuse when the monitor is originally built the factory default on the chip is a 200 setting so with only a 2 digit readout when pushing the down button I don't see the decrease till it hit 99 and started to decrease from there. I set it back to 65% and everything tested great.
I hope this makes sense and helps you guys out if you have this issue,
Very good to know. Thanks TP.
