I am trying to do a project on temperature control and found an example but cannot get the code to work. I have read forums and tried to fix the issue which is below the code.

Code:

#include<DHT.h>      // Including library for dht
#include<LiquidCrystal.h>
LiquidCrystal lcd(2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7);
#define dht11dpin 12
DHT11;
#define pwm 9
#byte degree[8] =
{
  0b00011,
  0b00011,
  0b00000,
  0b00000,
  0b00000,
  0b00000,
  0b00000,
  0b00000
};


#void setup()
{
  lcd.begin(16, 2);
  lcd.createChar(1, degree);
  lcd.clear();
  lcd.print("   Fan Speed  ");
  lcd.setCursor(0, 1);
  lcd.print("  Controlling ");
  delay(2000);
  analogWrite(pwm, 255);
  lcd.clear();
  lcd.print("Circuit Digest ");
  delay(2000);
}


void loop()
  DHT11.read(DHT11pin);
  int temp = DHT11.temperature;
  lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
  lcd.print("Temperature:");
  lcd.print(temp);   // Printing temperature on LCD
  lcd.write(1);
  lcd.print("C");
  lcd.setCursor(0, 1);
  if (temp < 26 )
  {
    analogWrite(9, 0);
    lcd.print("Fan OFF            ");
    delay(100);
  }
  else if (temp == 26)
  {
    analogWrite(pwm, 51);
    lcd.print("Fan Speed: 20%   ");
    delay(100);
  }
  else if (temp == 27)
  {
    analogWrite(pwm, 102);
    lcd.print("Fan Speed: 40%   ");
    delay(100);
  }
  else if (temp == 28)
  {
    analogWrite(pwm, 153);
    lcd.print("Fan Speed: 60%   ");
    delay(100);
  }
  else if (temp == 29)
  {
    analogWrite(pwm, 204);
    lcd.print("Fan Speed: 80%    ");
    delay(100);
  }
  else if (temp > 29)
  {
    analogWrite(pwm, 255);
    lcd.print("Fan Speed: 100%   ");
    delay(100);
  }
  delay(3000);
}

It's a bit hard to see, but

DHT11;  

does not look like a correct statement, assuming DHT11 is a class (not a define like shown) it should be something like

DHT11 dht; 

where dht is an instance and you can use that.

Than in

DHT11.read(DHT11pin);

you should replace it by

dht.read(DHT11pin);
  • so got past that bit but getting issue with the line lcd.createChar(1, degree); saying degree was not declared in sope – neil brody Jan 20 '18 at 11:33
  • degree should be a variable, which you haven't declared (unless it's global and you didn't post it). – Michel Keijzers Jan 20 '18 at 13:48
  • 1
    Several variable declarations and the setup definition are prefixed by #. Those will prevent the line from being processed correctly. degree is one of those with that error. – jose can u c Jan 20 '18 at 17:19
  • It seems the code has been changed since my comment. – Michel Keijzers Jan 20 '18 at 19:05
