Hello, you should simply be able to turn the thermostat to the OFF position. If you can gently pry the thermostat from its wall mounted sub base, and hold it in your hand, the back of the thermostat will have the brand name and model number. I will pull the operators manual for you.

We can go from there.

I could not find a manual for that thermostat.

I will opt out so that other of our experts here can see your question and might have that manual

Did you still need assistance with this?

in most cases if you have a thermostat with a program in it and you just want to run aa set temperature there should be a hold switch on it. if that is the case you can flip the switch and then set a desired temp and you should not encounter this issue again.
