Getting started
In order to program the Tempo thermostat all you need to do is slide the Program Slide control from the top position to the bottom position,
customising the program along the way.
If you make a mistake, return the Program Slide control to the previous position and start again. In order to change a setting value, turn the
Rotary Control. Pressing the Main Button will accept the value and move you on to the next value that needs setting.
The Tempo thermostat has a number of “Installer Settings”. If your thermostat has been installed correctly and is working then it is unlikely
that you will need to change these again. For additional details see “Installer settings” section.
Your thermostat can be set so that the programming is done for “all days the same”, “weekday and weekend” or “7 day”. To change this
setting, see the “set time/day” section.
Programming the thermostat
To program your thermostat all you need to do is move the Program Slide control on the right hand side of your thermostat from top to
bottom. The table below will explain what you can do at each step.
Turn the Rotary Control to change the current clock time. Once the clock time
has been set, press the Main Button, you will now be able to set the day of
the week. Turn the Rotary Control to select the correct day.
Set Time /Day
Your thermostat will by default allow you to set a weekday and weekend
program (5-2d). If you would like to set “all days the same” (1d) or “7 day”
programs (7d) then hold the Main Button for 5 seconds whilst in the set time/
day slide position. Once in this mode, turning the Rotary Control will allow
you change this setting. Push the Main Button or move the Program Slide to
accept the value.
Once you have set the time and day, move the Program Slide to the next
position to accept the value.

When in any of these positions you can set the start time for “morning” (1),
”day” (2), ”evening” (3) and “night “ (4) periods.
The “morning” and “evening” periods will follow the comfort temperature,
“day” and “night” periods will follow the setback temperature.
Using the Rotary Control, select the start time and press the Main Button to
move to the next day.
If you hold the Main Button for 3 seconds it will copy the start time to the
next day.
Tip - If you want to set the thermostat so that it is keeping the comfort
temperature all day and only setback at night, then just set the “day” start time
equal to the “evening” start time.
Set Temperatures
Here you can set the temperature which will be used for the comfort and
setback temperatures.
Done
Move the Program Slide control to the lowest position in order to start your
thermostat. Heating will not occur if the Program Slide control is not in this

Error messages / Trouble shooting
The thermostat is not controlling the
temperature
Ensure that the Program Slide is in the run position (lowest point) and that the Mode
Slide control (bottom) is in the manual or program positions.
Floor sensor error
If you see the floor sensor error icon
or “ - - “ on the screen it means that your
thermostat has been unable to detect the temperature of the floor. Please contact
Warmup.
Overheat
If you see the overheat icon
this means that your floor has become too hot and
the heating has been suspended. Please contact Warmup.
Low battery
The low battery icon
will display when the battery needs to be replaced. The
thermostat must be connected to the mains electricity supply in order to work, it is not
designed to be used with an intermittent power supply. If the battery is not installed
then your thermostat will not be able to maintain the clock time if power is lost.
Heating starts too early
If your heating is coming on too early, then this may be because the Adaptive Learning
function is turned on. This function allows your thermostat to learn how long it will take
to heat up to ensure it is the correct temperature at the start of the comfort periods.
See “installer settings” section of this guide.
Incorrect calibration
Your thermostat should not need any calibration, however if you would like to apply an
offset to the temperature settings see the “installer settings” section.
No mains electricity
If you see the no mains power icon
this means that the thermostat is not receiving
power. Check that the thermostat logic module is properly installed on the power
module and that the mains electricity supply is connected.
Regulator mode (Reg) is displayed
In this mode your thermostat will come on for a set number of minutes in a 10 minute
cycle. The thermostat will not use the temperature for control. Please contact Warmup
for additional details.
HI or LO is displayed
The thermostat will display “HI” if the ambient temperature exceeds 122°F (50°C) and
“LO” when the ambient temperature falls below 32°F (0°C).
