    So I recently bought a microclimate model dl1 thermostat but like an idiot before reading the manual I started messing with it now I can't get it back to the default temps and don't know which way to turn it for the temps can anyone help?

    That thermostat has two dials. Looking at it, the left one is factory set all the way to the counter-clockwise direction - 19°C. Turning the dial clockwise from there will increase the set temperature. so clockwise increases temp, counterclockwise to lower temp.

    The left dial controls any night drop temp you want, It is factory set all the way counterclockwise at 0°. So no night drop if left there. Turning that dial clockwise increases the night drop differential. That dial goes from a 0° setting to a 25°F setting all the way clockwise.

    Hope that helps.
