They are preset and should not be changed.
If you have a fill issue,remove the front panel and check the air dome and pressure tube on the side of the tub for blockage or pinching.

I'm not sure if this will help, but when installing the Tubing on the Pressure Switch,
the Tub must be empty.

If the switch is intermittent and the tube is clear you need another switch. I have not had any luck monkeying with a water level switch.

Check for a pin hole in the air tube.
