One moment please..Note it takes time to type and add links so please be patient. Also the site will send you a phone call offer, that is not me.

That is either a defective board or out of range control thermister. You should first replace the thermister in the unit as that is what controls the temperature of the unit. If for some reason that does not work the main board is bad not reading the sensor correctly to shut the heat off. See links below.

Hi there,
I was just touching base with you because I have not heard back from you and the question is still open and unrated, I am not credited anything until a good star rating is supplied I would really appreciate it if you could do that thanks!
