I measured it with one of those infrared point and shoot thermometers, so errors withstanding. And now that I’m not a giddy schoogirl and can see straight, I see that the part I was measuring actually was the heat exchanger LOL.
That’s not bad actually. The temp inside the tray area before pulling the unit out of the shipping box was 103 degrees. The heat exchanger was also 103 degrees still after unpacking and like I mentioned in another thread, the density of parts in there held the heat a bit longer. Once I turned my fan on it, which I have blowing constantly anyway, it cooled very quickly. Really by the time I removed all the packaging bits, installed the head, tray, and setup the Wi-Fi, it was cooled down. The temp alert in the app was immediately after connecting then as soon as I turned around to grab a piece of material, it cleared and the unit went into calibration.
So, really the temp alert did not cause me any delays in getting anything running, and I was anticipating it out of curiosity so I was not surprised when I saw it. In fact I think it can be helpful for people to be aware of it and not to freak out when it happens when they pull a new unit out of a hot box.
That’s kind of interesting. The AC here is set on 78 now that we’re into our slightly more humid part of the summer (what Arizona calls their monsoon, LOL) and while the rest of the house seems to hover around 74 degrees, this room still averages 78-80 because it gets radiant heat from the back patio which collects sun all afternoon. It seemed like once the external temp of the heat exchanger hit 80, all was well. Just a few minutes prior at 82, it had an amber alert. Longest project I ran last night though was only 15 minutes so it didnt really push things too hard.
