You have too many things on the circuit you are on. Either move it to a different plug, or turn some things off. A plug in heater uses as much electricity as the breaker should carry if it is a 15 amp, like most are. Try to find a plug on a different circuit, or clear some things off of it.

What is the best place to put in a manual honeywell thermostat in a house with one zone? I have a boiler raduater. I like to keep the heat the same in all rooms.

on an inside wall - large(est) room - near center of house - out of direct sunlight - not in or near kitchen, bath, appliance, light, or anything else that makes heat - approx 60" from floor - not close to a supply air (above a return air is GOOD)

Hello brandaleepup,
Your problem may be at the furnace control end and not your thermostat. To determine that, simply unhook the two wires from your thermostat so that they do not make contact. When they are electrically opened like that, your furnace should shut down. If it doesn't, then the problem is at the furnace control board. You may have a relay that is staying on even when power to it is disabled.
Hope that helps...

Honeywell surround heater shuts off

Had the same problem. The cause: The coils have too much dust on them.
Soultion: Take the bottom of the base off and clean/vacuum. While the base is off, you also have access to the interior of the heater. Remove the 2 screws on the bottom front, then the 2 on the bottom back. The plastic panels will come off and you'll have access to all internal areas. Just clean thoroughly and you should be good to go. You wouldn't realize it, but even with a spotless house, the heater will **** any small particle of dust.

Honeywell 5+2 day programmable thermostat will keep heating to 29 degrees!

Is sounds like you wired it correctly, The black is a little unusual perhaps its blue, anyway, try disconnecting the wires from the thermostat and see if it shuts off. If so, then it may need to re calibrated. I will need some more info to help you anymore.

Honeywell HZ517 Baseboard Heater

You can try to disassemble the heater and look for something wrong like a loose wire: in order to do so: Unplug the heater and let it cool completely before disassembling it. Remove the rear grille and the control knobs. Remove the front grille by unscrewing the fasteners on the back of the housing. Remove the front grille by lifting the control housing and pulling the front grille toward you. The motor, fan, and heating element are now accessible for testing and repair. Remove the thermostat from the control housing and disconnect the wires. Remove the heat control's mounting screws and clips to access and disconnect wires. Good luck
