Nortron electric heat will not turn off when set temperature is reached

It seems like heat gets stuck on and temp just keeps climbing no mater what i do. I tried turning heat selection off on thermostat and running just the fan heat still on. This has only happen about 3 or 4 times but it worries me that it may not shutoff when I'm away.

SOURCE: RUUD (Protech Model 500) Thermostat Single Stage Not Programable

problem is not the thermostat, thermostat is an on-off switch that happens to work on temperature. Your furnace is locking out. cycling the heat off switch resets the micro-processor in the furnace. You need to diagnose the problem in the furnace, to go further we will need the model and approximate age of the unit

SOURCE: Furnace doesn't reach desired temperature

On the thermostat if its a manual on then pop the cover off and look for a small dial with numbers on it. Take and move it tpoi a higher number than whats it is set at. Its called a heat anticipater and is supppose to make it so that the unit does not oveshoot or under shoot like what your experiencing. If its a digital oine then you are going to have to configure the setting in the insdtallers menu.

SOURCE: Electric furnace runs but won't shut off on heat setting

I would insist that Sears either have a Senior tech come out and fix it or return it to the state it was prior to them touching. Then call some one else. Have them involve the Goodman rep in your area.

SOURCE: Ruud Electric Furnace Cannot Reach Setpoint - "Watt Restrictor"?

unfamiliar with watt restrictors.
heat strips have 2 safety devices, a thermal overload, they get to hot they shut off, cause not enough air flow increase fan speed this device is auto reset. a fusible link a fail safe to thermal over load, no reset and sometimes replaceable. if this does not help would like to ask you a few questions. one of the buildings i take care of has 200 + reem/ ruuds all electric heat. if a part is defective replace, please do not by pass. safety frist.

I have a rlv4300 wired to a fan forced wall mounted heater when desired temperature is reaches heater shuts off for 3 or 4 seconds then comes on again over and over is this normal


The temperature delay has a setting (on some) that needs a differential between the on and the off temps, if this is too close the residual heat extracts when it climbs to the on temp then cols to the off and then climbs to the on again, its not normal but is efficient and is not allowing the unit to overheat but if the differential can be set wider it is the answer.

How do I keep the burners on at medium heat when I am making carmels so they get to the stage where they become caramels. My burners kept shutting off, so I had to turn them higher and when I got don


Is it the electric glasstop stove with the smooth top? If so, the burners aren't actually turning off. They're red until they reach the right temp and then they go dark to maintain the temp. If they stayed red the temp would keep climbing. I used one a while back and I remember it doing that. You didn't give much info, so that's my guess. I think most electric stoves do that to some extent, though. If it's gas, however, I'd call a repair guy.

Sounds like a stuck sequencer. Verify there is not 24 Volt control voltage to sequencer coil, then replace sequencer.

Appliaance shuts off at low temperatures


Most refrigerators cycle on and off based on the fresh foods temp. If the ambient temp is 10C and you have it set for 4C, the unit does not have to run much to satisfy the temperature control, and the temp in the freezer section will warm to + C range. (likewise, if the ambient drops to -C range, it won't mater if you set the fresh food section to +4C, it won't heat the air, and the fresh food section will eventually reach the -C ambient temp.) The only solution is to move the appliance to a warmer location or heat the room it is in. This is the only Fix-Ya for your refrigerator.

Too hot


more than likely if it isnt shutting off when it reaches temp. then it probably needs a temp sensor or a EOC (electronic oven control). I have replaced many of these boards in the past , usually there is a relay on the board that is stuck. The relay really isn't replaceable and the whole board needs to be replaced. Does the dispay show the temp that the oven acually is or the temp it is set for?

Electric hydronic liquid-filled baseboard heaters


The same comparisons with other forms of electric heat (i.e., radiant, electric strip baseboard, etc.) are the same. The difference is cycle time - the liquid-filled electric heaters turn on and off less frequently than strip-type to maintain thermostat temperatures. This also means that the unit's temperature will swing more widely than the desired average thermostat setting (the liquid's temperature will signal the thermostat to turn off power, but the temperature will continue to climb; similarly the liquid will signal the thermostat that it is cool enough to engage power but the liquid will continue to cool after power is engaged - similar temp swings with hygronic heating systems). Some say that the liquid-filled units are safer, but the manufacturer's installation guidance is usually the same between strip and liquid-filled so both pose an equal safety hazard.
