Question about Heating & Cooling
Are you sure it is calling for heat? Disconnect the stat and see if you still have system operation (Be careful if this is a line voltage unit). If so, the stat is not bad, there is a problem with the relay or with the wiring to it. If not, there is probably a short in the anticipator within the stat. This is a heating coil which helps the unit figure out how much heat 'will' be coming when the contacts close. This cannot be repaired.
If you have a line voltage system, you can still obtain thermostats which run on them. The better option is to put in a 24v relay system. You can get advice on how to do that at any home store....about 30-40 dollars and then get one of the new programmable stats. This will save energy and be more accurate. An energy star unit is a better bet anyway, it will save its cost in about a year.
