How do you change the temperature on a thermostat?
How many watts of electric heaters set on low?
The wattage of electric base board heaters does not change because the thermostat is set on low. The wattage is a fixed value on the heater because of its internal resistance element. The thermostat set on low shuts off at a lower temperature than a thermostat that is set on high. It is the time interval that governs the amount of heat that the heater produces when the thermostat calls for heat. Once the room heats up to the temperature that the thermostat is set at, the heater shuts off. The thermostat is just a temperature switch.

Asked in Mercury Grand Marquis, Thermostats
Do you have to open thermostat when installing a new one on a 1996 grand marquis?
The thermostat only opens when it reaches a set temperature. For instance a 195 degree thermostat opens at 195 degrees. Just install the thermostat, and do not mess with it. Install it spring down.

What a thermostat does?
A thermostat in general, is an assembly that measures temperature (if it measures room temperature then we are talking about a room thermostat) and trips an electrical contact on and off comparing measured temperature to a temperature setpoint (the temperature setting we set on the thermostat by means of a rotating knob or a digital screen and buttons. In an hvac system, we install a thermostat inside the room in which we want to control temperature and we set the desired temperature. If current temperature is below setpoint, then the contact trips, and the heating system heats the room. When measured temperature reaches the desired setpoint, thermostat trips off and the heating system will stop giving energy to the room. By starting and stoping the heating system, we achieve to set room temperature within some limits.
Asked in Electrical Wiring, Technology
Is there a way to run a fan when a room reaches a certain temperature Like a small computer fan that runs off a micro-controller using a thermometer?
There are two main types of thermostats. A cooling thermostat and a heating thermostat. On a heating thermostat the normally open contacts close when the temperature drops below the thermostats set point. On a cooling thermostat the normally open contacts close when the temperature rises above the thermostats set point. Once the cooling thermostat is spliced into the fan circuit all you have to do is set it at the point at which you want the fan to operate. If the room temperature rises above the set point that you set, the fan will operate. Once the temperature drops below the set point that you set it at it will shut off. In these types of thermostats there is a built in differential of about two to three degrees. This means that the fan will not shut off exactly at the set point but above or below the set point depending on what type of thermostat you are using.

How does a 240 volt hot water heater thermostat test for normal operation?
As with any thermostat it is based on where the set point is on the temperature scale. On hot water tanks the thermostat opens the element circuit when the set point temperature is reached. For example the set point should be around 135 degrees F. When cold water enters the tank, the thermostat closes due to sensing a temperature lower than the set point is set at. When the water heats up to 135 degrees the thermostat open because the set point is reached. To test the thermostat shut the power off at the distribution panel for the hot water tank. To do this test the water in the tank should be up to temperature. Remove the wires from the thermostat that is to be tested. Make a diagram of how the wires were connected. Using a continuity tester (ohm meter works fine) place the leads across the terminals where the wires were connected. If there is no reading then the set point is satisfied and the circuit is open. Leaving the tester leads on the terminals, with a screw driver raise the set point to a higher value. The meter should now show continuity between the terminals. Turn the set point down and the terminal reading should open. If this is happening then that thermostat is operating fine. Reposition the thermostat to the original set point. If you are working on the top thermostat now do the same to the bottom thermostat to see if it is working also. See related link below.
How can you test thermostat in your furnace?
Would a thermostat set for a higher temperature keep the heater from blowing hot air?
No. The thermostat controls the flow of water through the radiator, not the heating core. Using a thermostat with a higher temperature rating delay the opening of the thermostat (and the flow of water to the radiator) until that higher temperature is reached. This will cause the coolant to run hotter.

Asked in Appliance Voltage and Travel Issues
What is the problem when the heat in an oven can't be controlled?
When the heat in an oven can not be controlled it is the fault of the oven's thermostat. It is the thermostat that opens and closes to maintain a set point temperature. Depending on how the thermostat failed it will give the results of the oven always being on, oven with no heat whatsoever or when the calibration is not set correct, when wrong temperature is maintained.
