It sure sounds like you have a problem with the board. It may just be a dry joint or a faulty component. Normally one would replace the board.

Alot of the thermostats are adjustable and can be recalibrated but when they act like this, it is best to replace them. It is just a matter of time before it quit all together. Electronic units are some what different.
Let me know what you do and I'll give you a hand in getting it going.

SOURCE: blowing hot air all the time
There is a door that opens to the heater core.When the vacum control in the dash gets old the diaphram gets to flimsy to close one port so it puts vacum to all ports.Therefore there is not enough pull to engage the vacum motor to move the trap door.Change the switch in the dash. Check to make sure that there isn't an obstructing object in front of the door before you buy a new switch

I'm glad I could help. I'm reposting the solution below in case anyone needs it in the future. Please be sure to rate it for me!
Pull the temperature knob off and verify the thin 12mm nut is installed and tight behind it. I have seen several of these loosen up allowing the knob to turn but intermittently have no effect on temperature.

Turning the thermostat to a warmer setting should not have caused the machine to quit cooling. Actually, the engineers give you far less leeway than you might think.
The controls are more in a class of fine tuning, otherwise people would be getting themselves into trouble. The manufacturers simply design the warm and cold parameters in a fairly narrow range.
The best setting is normal. When away, the machine will run far less simply because of no door openings. Opening a door lets in large amounts of air every time it's done, which is where your cost to run it exists.
Two things. One, if the temp in the kitchen exceeded 90 degrees for any length of time, you are operating it beyond it's design range, however two, it sounds as if the thermostat hung up, causing your issue. You may want to have it replaced, but it would be useless to call anyone when it's performing normally.
There is no test on thermostats other than by observing their action when the machine is not operating properly.
