I cannot look at the moment because I am on a business trip. But to your knowledge, if this is a single speed motor, is this the way it's supposed to work? No temperature sensitivity?

If only a single speed fan wired all sounds good and same if you just have heat or cool.ou would need to verify wiring to know for sure.

Do you know someone in the Los Angeles area who might be willing to come out and take a look? I basically need to know 1) if the thermostat works as advertised and 2) are there more sophisticated thermostats that can be controlled remotely (wifi, etc.) Thanks.

I am in south Alabama so no idea of a reputable service company in LA.I would suggest Googling Chillers or HVAC contractors to find a reputable dealer.

I suspect thermostat is probably fine as it is rare for these things to go bad.

There are probably more modern stats available but again an onsite tech is best in making sure of compatability

I am going to attach a link o a manual so you can see exactly how the thermostat should work based on whether you have wired for heating,cooling or both
