Does the indicator light in the plug only work when the device is actually heating?

Does the indicator light come on when the device is plugged in, or only when the temperature drops below 38 deg?
Asked by: Mambajim
No, the indicator light seems to acknowledge that it has power.

At what temperature does the element turn on?

Asked by: Mark
34-37 degrees. Doesn't seem as exact as the manual says, but it's reading the pipe temperature, not air temperature.

You definitely want to read the instructions carefully so you install the cable and the temperature sensor correctly. The light on the plug is helpful to know it has power. But, it is difficult to verify that it works until the pipe temperature drops below 34 degrees. I wish the power cable were longer. I will note that I couldn't easily reach the entire length of pipe I was trying to warm (under an outdoor kitchen). But, I was able to wrap the cable around the pipe and pull it tight. Where I could reach, I mounted to the bottom of the pipe, adhered with electrical tape, and added pipe insulation over the top. That seemed to do the trick, although in Texas, it doesn't get too cold or stay cold for long.
