I have a LUX thermostat (model 1000?) in my vacation home. It ran for
days causing the temperature in the house to exceed 95 degrees. (It
melted crayons in the house!)
If we hadn't caught the problem in time our house might have burned
We aren't sure how many days this problem existed, but I do have a
$1,300 gas bill to pay. (This incident occurred in the middle of
winter, in the mountains.)
The other damage was mostly to the wood in the house: floor boards
shrank; cabinet door panels shrank; veneer came off the cabinet face;
wine bottles popped and other interesting damage occurred in the
LUX sent a new thermostat and requested we return the old one so they
could test it.
I'm reluctant to return it in case something 'happens' to it.
Anyone else have a similar experience? (Hopefully not as severe as
mine, since you were probably at home when it happened.)
