    Default Need thermostat help!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    i recently bought a JET 001 thermostat and im using it with my heatmat in port 1 and nothing else and ive set everything up to be about 34C 24/7 with a variance of 1C and alarm at 5C. the problem i seem to be having is that the thermostat never seems to go above 32C like its not even powering my heat mat. i was wondering if anyone was having the same problem or maybe ive done somthing wrong? i appreciate the help

    I'm not familiar with that particular brand of thermostat. But check with a digital thermometer and see where the heat mat is really heating to. Then adjust the thermostat to reflect the difference. Also, check the heat mat with not thermostat to see if it's even capable of achieving that temp. It may be a low wattage mat that just doesn't get very hot.
