Not sure, but it seems you took offense to me trying to fix something myself. I'm very aware of my limitations, but on many occasions have been able to fix something, that would have cost a lot of money if I had gone straight to a pro.
Also seems that you are offended at others offering advice. None of that advice was poor, and was asked for by me.
Sorry it ticked you off. I respect hard working pro's.
Ok now that that is out of the way:
Turns out, it was two AA batteries in my thermostat. I would have kept that to myself to hide my shame, but I hope someone is saved the frustration by trying such a simple remedy.
Embarrassed that I suffered for this many days in the heat, glad it didn't cost me an arm and a leg.
