Edgestar 12000 heating problem

Dear Guru:

After I set the heating thermostat set point ("ST" on the unit) (say 75 degrees), my heater will run if the room temp ("RT" on the unit) is lower than 75 degrees. However, after the heater runs and reaches 75 degrees, the "RT" will stay at a temp higher than 75, sometimes in the 80 to 83 range. In turn, the heater will not come back on because it thinks the room temp is higher than 75. I know the room temp is not higher than 75 because I have a separate thermometer in the room to measure the room temp.

Thank you.

Honeywell thermostate will not kick off on set temperture

There's a "throttling range." The unit starts (say, in heating) one degree below setpoint and shuts off two degrees above set point.

You can change the "temp" but you can't change the throttling range.

RTH2310b thermostat not heating to temperature set, I turn it off and back on, it runs few minutes then shuts off not heating to temp set on thermostat

All thermostats have a "Differential" setting that causes the thermostat to turn off early as an energy saving feature to blow all the hot air out before the furnace fan shuts down. On some stats, there is a switch on the back for setting this and some have a programming choice for setting this time. Others have no setting but normally start the heat about 2 or 3 degrees below the set-point and shut it off 2 degrees above. In this case it would be called a 5 degree differential. Look for these as described and adjust it up 2 degrees if found. Good luck.

Installed Amana 12000 BTU wall pack type airconditioner yesterday. How do I get machine not to turn off and on during operation? Do I set it to run automatic? If I set it "cool" low stetting at 69 degrees,...

You definately want the compressor to shut on and off with the demand set by the thermostat. It is no different than a full size home split heating and cooling system. You set the thermostat for the temperature you want and then you let the system decide when to run the compressor

How far from floor should exhaust hose hole be made edgestar 12000

makes no difference, as long as the ducting is not kinked.
keep in mind heat rises
so obviously if you could dump the heat elsewhere, away from the area you are cooling, then it would not creep back up through the floor. If your flooring is well insulated it will not matter.

Edgestar 12,000 portale air conditioner and heater

There are 3 possibilities beginning with the most likely problem

1) If your heater heats up for a few minutes and then quits, chances are there is a blockage in the air flow, check for dust and grime blocking the air intake coarse filter , airgun blow to clear accumulated dust and otherwise clean the coarse filter .
2) If the heater fan blows but there is no warm air, the heating element needs renewal ( this happens very rarely)
3)If the fan stalls and the heater heats up and the thermostat kicks in, then this will be not be a DIY job. This is least likely as you said the air cooler works.
