Question How to adjust an aquastat.

This is the Honeywell R8182D aquastat. It has three adjustments. Hi, low, and difference. I messed up the settings while I was working on the circuit board. Yep, should have wrote it down right?

If you could point me in the direction of a manual or something for this model. Unless the settings are pretty much universal between different makes/models.

What are the variables that I need to consider?

Aquastat settings

A good starting point for the settings is: Hi=180, Lo=160, & Diff=15
