Those are the operating limits of the instrument itself (i.e., don't put the whole controller in the oven).

The service manual lists a setpoint range of -50 to 302F (-50 to 150C).

It really seems as if you have a Celsius model. Are you sure it's not a TS-13011?

I know that I do have the TS-13010, and it is able to be set up to 220F.

Why? I wasn't saying I'm having a problem with my LOVE controller. I was just saying that my TS-13010 is definitely able to be set past 150F.
