gborch,

 

"How can I get the pressure knob dial to set above 10000 ft   Cant do it in the 340 or the b200"

 

Are you sure you are reading (looking at) the correct scale?

There are two scales inside the window.

 

Do a screenshot of of what you have.

When I set it like you did I get cabin alt goal 1198   feet  not 19000  and then I get ALT WARN above fl 10000'   I see the 2 scales but the dial goes to 10119  as the highest setting

Ok,

 

I did a quick test flight in the Carenado P46T Malibu.

I set my desired cabin altitude shortly after departure.

Here is what I see on my way up ............. all look like it is working properly to me.

I am going up to FL200.

Well,

 

Because what you are saying does not make sense to me ... I need to see a picture .. picture help in a case like this.

I would look at your example then I could try to duplicate it.

I don't know if it's broken or not. Some people report that it is working fine. It still may be pilot error...
