I'm in anseong and its been getting rather cold at night. I can't figure out my thermostat... its all in korean. the id number seems to be dsr-371 and it looks like there's a phone number 1588-8577. there are two dials in the lower left corner. the higher one ranges from 40 to 80. the bottom one ranges from 0 to 12. there are 4 buttons from top to bottom in the upper right. my limited knowledge leads me to believe the following: the top button turns the whole thing on and the bottom button seems to send hot water to the sink and shower. however, if you don't use it fairly quickly, you lose that hot water. there is a pattern of red indicator lights in the lower right. they range from 40 to 80. it seems the more they're lit up, the more hot water I get. I've omitted 2 buttons in the middle. I can't find out what either does. you can compress them or leave them extended. plz help. id post a pic but I don't know how to from this phone

A picture of your thermostat might help us to help you. Link a photo of your thermostat.

This. I've lived in 8 different apartments in Korea and they all had different model boilers and thermostats. Unless you can take and upload a pic most likely anyone who answers will just be guessing.

If it is then you want to make sure that the bottom knob on the left is turned all the way to the left.

My Google-Fu is strong. Wink

The dial on the top left is your temp control.
Below that is a timer. Turn that all the way to the left-off.

The buttons on the right in descending order are;

power
room and water heater
water only heater
rapid heat for water

Hope this all helps. Good luck!

4 button on the right from top to bottom:

button 1: Power button
button 2: Controls your floor heating (Green light means floor heating/other light means hotwater only)
button3: Controls your hot water (Green light means high temp water/other light means lower temp water) (you would need to use this button only when you need hot water, but not your floor heating)
button4: Use this button when you require hot water quickly.

Two dials on the left:
Big dial: Controls your room temperature
Reservation Dial: Reserve the system to be turn on in increment of hours.

To turn on your floor heater:

1. Power on
2. Turn your Reservation dial (small) to 0.
3. Turn you temperature control dial (big) to temperature you desire.
4. Press the button 2 (Green light should be lit).
5. 가동 (green light) should be also lit.

Then you're in business.

Ok.

1. Top right Button: Power on/off button
2. Middle LED display: Room temp. indicator
3. bottom left button: Hot water setting button
a. Turn counter clock: low temp water
b. Turn clock: high temp water
4. Bottom middle dial: Temp control dial for your foor heat
5. bottom right button: Hot water/floor heat & hot water only control
a. Turn counter clock: Ondol/hot water (both)
b. Turn clock: Hot water only

To turn on your ondol:

1. Press #1
2. Turn #4 to your desired room temperature
3. Turn #5 to counter clock wise (b)

It'll take a while to heat your ondol floor (30 min.).

I made a correction on step #3 (turn counter clock wise, not clock wise)

Does anyone know what the "away" setting would be in Korean? I will be leaving for a few weeks during winter vacation and don't want to come home to frozen pipes (which is what I've been reading will happen), but I also don't want to leave the heating on the whole time that I'm gone and be billed heavily for it. I would really love to just leave it off and not be billed whatsoever. What do you think? Thanks!
