I have two white/rodgers thermostats, both operate lpg stoves for zone heat. Both thermostats were installed in 2015 new, and both have the same problem of failure to operate intermittenly.
Both shut off just fine, but sometimes do not seem to send signal to the stove once the contacts close, Ive found that working the setting lever back and forth seems to make it operate but not always.
Could it be static electricity?
