Have used this thermostat for a year and a half to run two baseboard heaters. It does not have a temperature scale and that is fine as everyone simply adjusts it until the temperature is comfortable and then leaves it there. More useful than a thermostat that always tells the wrong temperature.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Displeased Defective Bi-metal calibration
Installed the MD26R and my baseboard electric heater would not turn on. Checked power to thermostat-Good. Turned stat to high comfort range and tested load side - NO POWER. Worked dial and finally got the heater to heat ONLY WITH THERMOST PEGGED OUT ON THE HI SETTING. The temperature in the room was 58*F when testing. Bimetal must be off 12*F or the thermostat is only working all on or all off..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Taipantim Decent high voltage thermostat
This was a replacement thermostat. The wiring was exactly the opposite of the old one. I like this unit better because it does not require batteries like the old one. Only have been using it for a month but so far so good. installation was easy. Glad I looked at the wiring diagram first.
The only downside is there are no numbers/degree settings. I simply got a thermometer and calibrated the thermostat to that.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BrianB What junk!
Bought four of these to replace 30yr old Thermostats. The first two would not sense a drop in temperature and turn on the heat automatically but they would work if you jiggled the knob a bit. Such junk that I had zero faith in them and returned all four. Bought another brand whose name sounds much like Bummysmells and installed those with zero problems.

Not expensive and easy to install. Connect four wire nuts and your done.
