Question

Remove Robert Shaw D34000 Thermostat?


How does one remove an old Robert Shaw Quartz Movement D34000 Thermostat? It looks like it has survived since the mid/late 80s, but I don't see an obvious way to remove it for a modern replacement.

Thanks DH, you can view image here (first hit on Google Images for Robert Shaw D34000): http://www.askmehelpdesk.com/attachm...thermostat.jpg

It looks like there are tiny recessed screws that require a small jeweler-type screw driver.

Remove the three obvious hex head screws, and it should lift off.

Yup, those three 1/4" hex head screws to be precise, are holding the sub base to the sheetrock. Nothing to it.

Thanks all. My issue was actually getting the Controls off the subbase, but I got it this AM. Removing the subbase was easy and obvious as you've suggested. Sorry, that pic wasn't helpful as the controls had already been removed.
