I think the correct answer is the "Heat Pump Compressor Lockout" sets when it switches to backup. This is called "Balance Point Temperature" elsewhere in the manual. This is 0350. Also 0360 "Heat Pump Auxiliary Lockout". See also page 33 and 34 of that document.

Yes the information is in that Technician manual. It wasn't in the user manual. Thank you.

comment Sanding, Blasting, or chemical for paint removal from old metal cabinets?
I think you are right it might just be steel, not stainless steel. But it is still beautiful "raw", and I'd like to remove the paint. I've never heard of electro-static. Is that a removal or adhesive? I'll bing it now... - Aha! We'll probably re-paint some of the cabinets, but the lower ones look good as steel, so electro-static doesn't help here...

comment Can I save energy costs by turning off the refrigerator for 1-2 hours every day?
It is likely to end up costing a lot more - in terms of buying a new fridge: diy.stackexchange.com/questions/5990/…
