Question about Ouellet Heating & Cooling
It is a baseboard heater. When I turn it down, the temp. bounces right back to the original number. There are only two buttons on it. Up and down.
Code Error 53 is "defective outdoor sensor" error.

I am not familiar with this particular thermostat; however, here's some general t-stat information; I hope this solution will help you troubleshoot.
I'm under the impression that you're dealing w/ a digital thermostat
the two types of thermostats that i can imagine are programmable and non-programmable.
(MYbackground: Like removing the battery to reset the bios of a motherboard within a PC... This is a very similar approach; note: i am not a ACtech, however, familiar computers and building them.)
Multiple Thermostats set in 1 zone will conflict; the one with the lowest setting will be the determining Thermostat for the group. Here's an option you can try yourself; my solution is 'hard reset' the thermostat - afterwards, i'm outta options. invest in external thermometer battery/natural types; & manually turn t-stat ON or OFF; Additionally, keep an eye on how much draw your AC is doing on your meter.
disable auto & enable manual; however do NOT change settings or power-off t-stat. I'd keep it on what you had intended it from day1. However, some may debate to turn everything off beforehand. personally, myself, poweringOFF the switch connected to your t-stat works. Remove battery and reinsert inverted; wait (5sec-1min); remove; wait 1min ('debatable' timeframe 5sec - 1min); reinsert batteries correctly; if you have a programmable thermostat; do the same with the hit 'reset filter' held down & wait 5-sec1min; observe roomTemp reading. May I suggest to keep an extra thermometer around to determine if temperature reading from the thermostat correct? Friendly reminder to turnOFF 'auto' mode during this hard reset. If reset requires reprogramming your t-stat, do whatever required to set your desired setting. cheers. best of luck.

The internal coil or thermistor is defective and can not sense the normal temp. range. R$eplace
