Both of them are normal, Bob.

Strangely enough, in my case after a week of sitting with the battery 
disconnected exactly the opposite had happened. The temp. display went 
into degrees F by itself. Yes, you guessed it, my temps are in Celsius 
as I wouldn't be able to tell 55ºF from 65ºF even if my life depended on it.

This is also normal. You can expedite the process making the windows 
relearn the upper and the lower limits by exercising them up and down a 
few times. Mine has the "one-touch-up" feature, so I have to train all 
four of them.
