Repairman1981 :

Is this a gas or electric?

Repairman1981 :

Have you tried setting to 500?

Customer: It is gas and it is on 500 now and has been for 20 minutes and the internal temp is 300
Repairman1981 :

you can't turn it up much higher than that, you need a new thermostat, your kinda stuck until the tech comes to install it

Repairman1981 :

There isn't a work around unfortunately

Customer: Great !!!
Repairman1981 :

Sorry, wish there was,

Repairman1981 :

If it went to 700 you would be good, but it looks like the thermostat is off by 200 degrees roughly

Customer: Thanks any ways
Repairman1981 :

Lemme know if you need anything else .... thank!
