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.

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.
