I have an airtherm fan coil unit that either has hot or cold water fed to it. The thermostat is attached to the unit and the temperature sensor is a big copper looking bulb with a long copper wire attaching it to the fan speed temperature dial. If you turn dial cooler unit goes on, it will not shut off unless you turn dial warmer. It will not turn on and off itself. The airtherm is 20+ years old, an 081-1L, it says...why won't it turn on and off itself?

The thermostat metal box is attached to the fan box, it is a fan coil unit in a co-op, either hot or cold water is pumper thru out the building. All the thermostat controller does is let you select fan speed, and control room temperature by turning the fan on and off. If you send me an email address I can send pictures.
HVAC Technician: Daniel Plourde, HVAC Technician replied 1 year ago

there should be a control valve that turns the chilled water flow through the coil. we first need to make sure that valve is opening and chilled water is flowing through the coil. if you take a picture you can attach them here by suing the attach file button on your screen like in an email.

chilled or hot water flows continuously thru out building, to get hot or cold air the fan, controlled by thermostat goes on and off
HVAC Technician: Daniel Plourde, HVAC Technician replied 1 year ago

yes i realize that but there should be a control valve that opens the chilled water on a call for cooling and for heating. is it a 2 pipe or 4 pipe system you have. the thermostat you mentioned is most likely for the heat so the fan does not come on until the coil is hot.
