Default Re: help, thermostat not working properly repti temp

It sounds like either the thermostat or the emitter is defective. A 150 should heat up quickly. The fact that it does turn off if you turn the dial, makes me wonder if its the emitter that is defective. If the thermostat wasn't working, but the emitter was, the cage would continue getting hotter and hotter.
