I see you have not jumped red to white and run the unit several times as advised on

V12Tech : The easiest way to definitively test the system is remove the thermostats cover,it exposes the Red 24v hot White Yellow and Greeen circuits
V12Tech : Red to White is heat.
V12Tech : If you get a set of jumpers or use a piece of wire
you jump Red to White and see if it shuts off every time you remove the jumper,simulating a termination of heat call from the thermostat.
And on 12-21 still had no idea whether the thermostat was bad or the heater!
`There is no way to determine if the thermostat is bad without testing it or bypassing it, by jumping/connecting/touching RED to WHITE,
This is very simple and requires just a small screwdriver,
had you ran the unit several times to observe any malfunction having removed the thermostat from the equation, this much would be known at least.
This unit unless very old is a heat pump, if it is resistive electric heat I would expect $200-$400 a month heat bill alone.
Resistive heat is 100% efficient in converting 1 Watt into BTU's
1 Watt = 3.45 BTU's @ 100% efficiency
A heat pump is approx 300% efficient and provides 12 BTU's per Watt
or a 3 X the heat per Watt or per Dollar actually.
So if a $300 electric heat bill with resistive strip heat
you will have a $100 billl with a heat pump and for the same heat provided! This alone explains why we rarely ever see straight resistive heaters anymore. We had Rancho Seco Nuclear plant and .03 per KWH electricity at one time and electric heat was way too cheap to consider a heat pump despite their 300% efficiency .
3 mile island caused the shut down of this plant and 60 million in costs, we now pay about.30 per kwh after the 1st tier rate.
A $400 heat bill was not uncommon,and consequently we ripped out every resistive heat furnace in town,replacing with heat pumps or gas if available.You can buy an entire new furnace for $645.
I rarely see them the last 20 year as a result.
banging on the unit if stuck funny as it sounds will
jar loose a stuck relay etc.
As for replacing a sequencer, jumping 2 wires together on the thermostat has not been done in 18 days,
replacing a sequencer is implausible,nor should you in my opinion,
its too dangerous and easy to make 1 error,
power gives no second chances,please be careful if you attempt the sequencer, at this point I suggest a service call is required to at least diagnose what you have wrong and we can talk you through it.
