What is the correct way to set the bypass on a FDO thermostat
That's a good question to ask. I've often encountered temperature-related service calls on those thermostats where I found they weren't set up properly during installation (i.e., replaced by someone not knowing how).
MOST manufacturers of ovens & griddles employing those thermostats provide a step-by-step procedure in their service manuals. You might want to check that out. Otherwise, here's MY step-by-step procedure:
Assuming the thermostat is GOOD:
-NOTE: If you're working on an existing thermostat and was told it's getting too hot, don't assume it's a bad thermostat yet. Try adjusting the bypass DOWN first. Somebody may have set it up wrong during replacement.
Did the bypass flame maintain your setting? Very likely. If not, then make further adjustments accordingly.
