Here's a quick-n-dirty on how to recal the LC-1 with XD-16. It's the same without the XD-16 though. You just have to watch the LED instead of the digital display.
1. Power off.
2. Remove the sensor from the pipe and dangle in free air (exhaust free room!)
3. Unplug the sensor from the cable
4. Power On for 60 seconds (powering on for 60 seconds without a sensor connected tells it to heater and free air cal on the next power up)
5. Power off.
6. Plug the sensor into the cable, leave it in free air.
7. Power on.
8. Watch the XD-16 as it heats up, then heater cals, then free air cals. If you want, after that's done, use the CAL button to free air cal it yourself. I usually do for that warm and fuzzy feeling
9. Power off.
10. Put the sensor back in the pipe.
11. If your install is good and the unit/sensor are good, you're good to go. Power up and rock on...
