Hello and welcome to Just Answer… My name is ***** ***** allow me a few moments while I do some research, my recommendation will appear shortly.

Those type of parts are not repairable and you will need to replace the thermostat

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
is it covered under warranty

If the thermostat is less than 1 yr old you should be able to return it to where you bought it with proof of purchase and should be able to exchange it.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
is that part covered in the manufacturers warranty
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Do you know if it's sold in GA at Home Depot or Lowes....It is a newly built Condo so I did not purchase it

You would need to read the warranty to determine if it is covered. I would need to know the make and model of thermostat.

Are you the 1st owner of the condo?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I don't have manufaturers warranty....Yes I am first owner

You should also let the builder know and they may replace it for you or you can contact your home warranty protection policy and they can replace it usually for a service fee.

OK... thanks

You are most welcome...
