Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

T​hat would seem to indicate that the thermostat is not working properly all the time. I think those are still available and I can get back to you with a part number. Please get me the Product number off the data tag so I can be sure to get the right modification as some of these go through a series of small changes.
