Question about Heaters
The heater will not react to the temperature setting and shut off when the preset temp is reached. It had been working great and suddenly developed this problem.
Wow, what a GREAT SOLUTION!!!

Most space heaters will heat until the room has reached a temperature 2-3 degrees higher than the temperature you set it for. This is because if it were to only heat to the set temperature, 3 mins later once the room had cooled by a degree, it would be heating again. They're manufactured to heat a bit more so that they don't have to constantly be turning off and on. Don't worry, unless it's still heating after the temperature is 5+ degrees more than you wanted, there's nothing to be worried about.
