The machine has six settings, from coldest to warmest:
- Isn't It Cold
Furthermore, each panel was colour-coded, with a gradual change in shade denoting how hot or cold the environment was. When a hot setting is selected, the screen would show hues of red and orange, whilst a cold setting was pictured by shades of blue. A screen at the top shows exactly what setting the machine is on, mirroring the colour shown in its respective panel.
The machine was never actually destroyed by Sonic, leaving it open to another use by The Chiller.
