Nest Thermostat

Community Member

Hi, I have a nest stat installed and the app on my android.

I set the temp to 20° but it will often switch to manual at 23°. I have to open the Nest app and set it back to manual again. 

Any ideas?

I mean back to the app controlling it, not manual.

(And I don't know how to edit my original post)


If you are setting the temperature at 20 by twirling the dial or pushing up/down arrow keys, that's only a temporary instruction to the Nest.  It will revert to its underlying schedule at the next set point in that schedule.  If the schedule calls for 23 at the time you see the Nest change to 23, that may be what is going on.  (I apologize if I don't understand your description of the problem; I'm not sure what you mean by "manual".)

Thank you for the reply.
The Unit is a Nest Learning Thermostat.
I have it connected to WiFi and have installed the app on my android phone.
When I set 19 degrees in the app on my phone, it seems to set it ok and the unit shows 19 degrees.
At seemingly random times (maybe the next day) the app shows that the stat has gone back to Manual 23 degrees.
The Nest stat is in a rental property and is pin locked.
I don't believe there are any schedules set, certainly in the Nest App on my phone there are non set. (unless there are some by default in the stat itself?)
Hope this makes sense
Kind Regards

You could try setting up your own schedule in the app, which maybe will override whatever it's doing now. And at least you'll get an idea if a phantom schedule is the issue. 

Ok, I'll try setting a schedule in the app. on my phone.

I have set 19 degrees at 16:00hrs. every day of the week.

What does it do for the other 23hrs of the day if 16:00 is set to 19 degrees? 

I guess (hope) it just stops at 19deg until any change in the next scheduled event?

Is there a manual or something explaining all this somewhere?

Well you'd need to create an "off" setting later in each day, say 16⁰ at 2200, or it would stay at the earlier setting all the time.
