If you are replacing the same type of thermostat, the particular model you have can be used for heating and air conditioning using either gas or oil as a fuel source.

Even though it is low voltage, still turn off the power to your heating system and then you can begin. Label the wires that come off of the old t-stat with the letters on the back of the old thermostat they are unscrewed from.

Wrap the wires around something that is not metal, a pen, pencil or small piece of wood so they don't fall into the wall.

Install the cover ring (if needed) as shown in the instructions. I have included instructions from honeywell for this t-stat below. Install the wallplate, be sure it is level, use the diagram in instructions to see how wallplate should sit.

Use the wiring for the systems you have and the amount of wires you have depending on your mechanical systems. Set the heat anticipator for the type of system you have and place the t-stat on the wallplate. Turn your power back on and test both systems to be sure they are running correctly.

Fine tune using the instructions, your done. Total time to install aprox. 30-40 minutes including testing etc.

Where can I get instructions for thermostat replacement in Tefal FV8225 steam iron

I suggest to remove the bad thermostate and try to buy a similar one. First remove the scew which fix the thermostate on the iron base. Then carefully disconnect the two wires and mark them in order to connect correctly the new one. I used to make a litlle sketch.
But before buying a new thermostate, you should test the thermic fuse (a small component placed into a thermic "sleeve" and fixed with a small brace screwed to the base) as when the thermostate jams this fuse burns out, giving a second protection.

I do not have enough heat in my 1994 dodge ram truck

I expect the thermostate is stuck partially open not allowing the engine to come to proper temperature. Replace the thermostate found under the goose-neck (follow the upper hose back to the engine) under this piece is the thermostate. Be certain to clean all of the old gasket material away and use a new gasket. Watch to be ceratin the thermostate is not put in upside down, if this happens your issue won't be not enough heat but over heating.
I hope this may have been of help,

I'm needing to know how to install a thermostat on a 91 eclipse non turbo 1.8l

Follow your upper radiator hose back to the engine, it will lead to what many refer to as the "goose neck" typically two bolts holding it in place. I expect this part will have several Temp. sensors in it so remove those wires and take care not to damage these when removing. The thermostate lies under this part. When installing be certain to remove all of old gasket and use a new gasket, don't over tighten as your working with aluminum and it can strip easily. You'll of course need to remove and add new radiator fluid. PLease note top of thermostate do not put it in upside down or it will not open and the engine will continually overheat.
I hope this may have helped,

How to change out thermostat in 1991 buck centry 3300

your thermostate is probably on the block sideways in whitch case you need to remove the air filter outr of your way and loosen the clamp on the thermostate housing. from there take out the 3 bolts holding the thermostat housing in place and remove it. Caution water/antifreeze will come out. take the thermostate out watching where the gasket has been placed and install the new one after cleaning the suface of the old gasket. sometimes it is good to use indian head gasket sealer. there will be 2 bolts on top and 1 bolt on the bottom under the housing. install the new thermostate tightn the hose replace your filter and fill the over flow resivor only to the point on COLD MAX. take the cap off the radiator start the car wait for the thermostate to open and fill the raditor the rest the way up. if it starts to boil over just shut the car off and let it cool than add more water *** needed...

Overheating intown or towing

You might laugh, but have you put a new rad cap on? If the system is not holding enough pressure it can overheat.
