L8148E aquastat/thermostat dilemma
I have a thermostat that shuts the heat off when set at 68* and turns it back on when it's set for 72*. The temperature of the room is 72*. What the heck? Apparently something is wired backwards but what? What am I missing here? I played with the anticipator going the full range and it remains the same for every setting. Is the thermostat hung upside down (mercury switch going backwards)?
Please help, boy it seems like I should know this but I just don't know.
