Does any one know how to change the c to farenheit on this small chiller 70W/100W Aquarium Water Chiller Fish Shrimp Tank Cooler Heating Cooling Machine


Recommended Posts

It may be easier just to set it to the equivalent celcius which should be easy enough to get that figure off internet converter etc. Or let me know the F you are aiming for and I can look it up for you in C.

Good old ebay!

You have to know if the chiller supports both c/f, I know some supports either one or both, if you can open the chiller and post the model number of the temperature unit, I can check, but either way, the instruction manual should help you out even if it's in Chinese, I know as I also have these Chinese made chiller.

 

Please post link of the seller, so I know which one you have.

Hello I took a picture of the front of unit. It has model number.

The large left number seems to be current temp of tank. 24.6C=76.28F---I checked this it is correct

The right top number is 24.7C= 76.46F . above number it saids stop temperature. I am assuming it will stop chilling at this temp right?

IF the unit red light goes on it is using the fan-motor. IF it reaches this temp on the right up top it seems to stop.(I have observed this)

So the bottom number on right is 20.7C =69.26F.  So I assume that it will warm up at this point?

These are all default temperatures set by company, I just assembled. The temperatures are ok, I am just curious if my temps get colder than 69.26F what will happen. 

Model number is GeekTeches STC-200

The pic is not uploading to large.

Let me know  what  you think

Thank you for your help!

Try this,

Press and hold both up and down arrows simultaneously for 10 seconds. 

 

Stop temp, in a chiller, needs to be lower than the start temp.  For example,...

Start when water temp is 26degC.

Stop when water temp is 23degC.

Did "Press and hold both up and down arrows simultaneously for 10 seconds" not work?

I have did a search for your model, it seem there are many variation of the same model from different companies.

these are the only detail I found, but nothing on F/C.

      I have just done the planned weekly maintenance and 10% water change and everything 'seems' to be going very well, I saw 12 blue and 9 panda shrimps so am very happy about that as there are always some hiding (and they are small) so there must be more than that at this point. Early days yet (especially with the off parameters) with the blues only been in the tank for a week and the pandas for 2 weeks. Not seen any dead ones yet and the shrimp seem happy enough and beautiful colour and pattern, all small so must be young! Parameters were TDS 159, GH 7-8, KH 1-2, PH 7 yesterday so still a bit off the usual ideal! Hopefully these figures come down slowly in time, I used pure RO water for the water change so Tds should drop 10. I will get a different PH test kit with a narrower range/increments as the one I have measures in .5 increments over a wide range which is probably a bit much. I bought these shrimp because the sellers parameters (PH 6.8) were the closest to mine so hopefully it will work out long term. I changed my zerowater filter as well, as the old one was measuring TDS 6 so passed its best. I will definitely overnight drip acclimate shrimp in the future, not that I plan any more in the forseeable future. I will add/edit photo when available, hopefully later today.

      All done now, I drip acclimated 11 blue bolts and 6 blue steel overnight and they are now in the tank so now is just wait and see if this works. 28 shrimps have now been put in and I have yet to SEE a dead one so fingers crossed! A couple of pictures of some below; I don't plan on buying any more shrimp so plan this to be a blue shrimp tank, though if it doesn't work out I have seen some female bettas I would like, but hopefully the shrimps will work out. The water parameters are still the same as before, so a bit off! I need to sort out what foods and shrimp stuff I have in the drawers and cupboard tomorrow as it's been a while, hopefully I find a shrimp lolly so I can give them one/part of those tomorrow, and it may bring as many of the shrimps out as possible.  Fingers crossed everyone...........
