I ordered the thermostat as a replacement for my original one which failed due to what appeared to be a melted connection after a few years of operation. I have no idea what precipitated the failure after such a long period of usage and was happy to have the replacement hooked up and my floor heat functioning once more. I enjoy the floor heat under the tiled floor of my old farmhouse dining room in Michigan, and would add it in other areas if I ever changed floor coverings of other rooms for any reason

I had to replace a 10- year-old SunTouch thermostat for a floor heating mat in our master bathroom. The unit had reached a temperature of over 100 degrees, was still increasing and had to be shut off with the controls on the back of the wall mounted unit which were difficult to locate. The new Sun Touch thermostat which replaced the failed and discontinued old model was a noted step up with improvements including a lighted control face and on-off buttons on the exterior.
The new unit was shipped on a very timely basis and was easy to install since the sensor was in working shape.

It is a great product but like other responses I had trouble wiring it. Finally had to call an expert. We found two places where it was wired incorrectly. All is well with the world now.

Scott, Thank you so much for your prompt replies. Since the GFCI was tripping I decided to re-check all my wiring. As a result I see what I did to cause the problem. I just now flipped the breaker on and the thermostat and everything is now working PROPERLY!! Thanks again. By the way, these mats worked great under the tile floor in the master bath – everything I could have hoped for!
