Switching from Celsius to Fahrenheit is done with a small jumper, it's located on the left of the green PCB in the upper right corner. Right under the green PCB is a jumper for the alarm, if the jumper is connected the device will sound an alarm when any voltage drops below 7V of when one of the temperature sensors exceeds 70°C (150°F).
