Can a person buy a bad new thermostat

Yes, it's been known to happen. Can test it by putting in a pan of hot water on the stove. Just before the water starts to boil thermostat should start opening. When the water does boil, thermostat should be fully open.

How to install thermostat

The best thing to do is to buy a Haynes or Chilton manual for your vehicle.

Purchase the replacement thermostat and gasket (no they do not come as a set.)
Items needed: socket and ratchet, a tube of liquid gasket, a wire brush, screwdriver for hose clamp

Open the hood, disconnect the Neg terminal of the battery (not the red one)
The radiator accept hot water at the top and feeds it to the water pump on the bottom.
Most thermostats are located on the engine block at the other end of the water hose going to the top of the radiator.
Trace it back, and remove the hose clamp.
Pull the hose clamp back (you do not need to take it off)
Pull the hose off the thermostat hosing neck.
The housing will be held on by 2 or 3 bolts, remove the bolts to remove the housing
The thermostat should come loose.
There will be gasket material stuck to the housing and the engine block, it must be scraped off before installing the new gasket.
Compare old thermostat with new one. Make sure they match.
A good tip is to stress the new thermostat in boiling water to insure it works. Boils some water, and place the thermostat in the water and watch it open. pour out the water, run it under cold water to cool it off.
After using a wire brush to remove the old gasket material,
place liquid gasket along the edge of the engine block opening and place the new gasket on the opening.'
Place the new thermostat in place (IT MUST GO IN ONE WAY)
Place the housing back on the engine block and replace the bolts, (tighten the bolts gradually )
replace the hose on the neck, and replace the clamp and tighten.
remove all tools and reconnect the battery

Good luck and don't forget to vote.

Water in resovoir boils away. Do I need a thermostat?

Listen to the unit after you make a pot of coffee. You will hear it start heating the water and then after the water heats up you will hear the unit shut down. If it is not shutting down and is continuing to run then yes you need a new thermostat.

I have a 3 burner that I got on ebay and it seems to want to get the water too hot. It gets hot enough that it sends steam from everywhere. I imagine that that is due to water boiling in the tank? I...

Hello, yes you are correct, it's due to the water boiling in the tank. take 2 screws out of the top panel, just under this panel you will find the thermostat (it's ajustable) turn the temp down on the thermostat, if this does not solve the problem your thermostat may be bad and you will have to replace it. You can purchase new parts from either bunn direct or from holiday house in california. if you have any additional questions please feel free to comment again. Good Luck! Mike

Water boiling back in the resevoir after running 10 min thermostat is new and so are hoses. then car starts to run bad and shuts off.

Sounds like a plugged radiator or bad water pump, assuming the thermostat was put in correctly. If you hear a loud whining noise from the water pump when running, that's probably the problem, and it's more common than bad radiators.
