2 Wire Thermostat question


I was so engrossed in the subject and issues I didn't look at your location which I really don't do anyway.

My answer I guess is more geared for the Yankees. However it could be for the rebels if it got real cold at one time or another the occupant did the manual thing.
The reason could be lack of use valve not operational you know the saying use it or loose it.

2 Wire Thermostat question


I was just pointing out that I didn't think of that .
Even if you ever disagree with me . I rather a debate and we figure out the correct way or just settle to have a different opinion . As long as it's done in a respectful way , it's cool with me .

2 Wire Thermostat question


Sometimes a good squirt of WD40 on the valve stem will give you a little more time out of a dying
valve like that.

Those actuator heads are always a bit loose,That one is probably a bit sprung from the previous owner using the manual over ride switch for so long.

Good luck,Just a guess--Did you buy this place 'as is' without hiring an inspector?

We did have an inspector look at the place. But we purchased the place over the summer and the realtor told us that the heat is turned off in the summer so we did not investigate it any further

Well I just sprayed some wd-40 on the valve and turn the manual switch and now i have heat.

Going to let the heat cool down and then connect the thermostat back up and see if I have heat

The new head should arrive weds so hopefully that will compltly fix the problem
