    why would an all-electronic part, that worked for 4 months, suddenly fail? If you trust the seller, you are getting a part for under $100 that you probably normally sell at close to $200, hopefully the extra $60 or so you pocket mitigates the risk. On my end, it may not be worth selling for like $30 or so, and with 2 new evolution stats, I doubt I will ever need a spare.

    ALSO - you forget that homeowners also frequent this forum. Saving $50+ for a DIYer may be significant.

    thanks though

    This is exactly why we shouldn't let homeowners use this part of the message board. This should be locked to allow professional members only.

    We are not here for DIY.

    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.

    This is why I specifically asked the BOSS for permission first. I wasn't sure it was ok or not.

    and I get that you don't want people coming here for instruction on how to do general HVAC stuff - installation, even duct work, is a skilled trade, I agree with that. But you really want to insist that people call a pro if all they want to do is swap their stat?

    Maybe I started too high, but if someone took this off me for, say $75. I get 1/2 my money back, and they get a good stat for 1/2 price. everybody wins, i think?

    One of my most common service calls for residential is the DIY/HO tried to install a tstat and hooked it up wrong and fried the transformer.

    Why do you insist to argue? You asked for it when you posted a tstat for that much, and we gave you our opinions.
    Your best bet, let this alone...

    I'm not trying to 'argue'. If you say most people can't hook up a stat, who am I to disagree? so i don't.

    I also was not intentionally "asking for" anything when I in good faith posted a stat that I had no more use for, in the hope that I could create a win/win where someone else gets a virtually brand-new product for a significant discount, and I don't lose my entire investment.

    I get that you feel that I should sell it for so little that's it's hardly worth the effort, perhaps to teach me some lesson? 8-}, but i'd still like to think there's a still a middle ground where everyone wins.

    peace

    Once again, he asked permission and I said yes.

    This is a Junk Yard forum where you can sell it if you don't need it. He doesn't need it. There are no rules that say you have to be a Professional Member to sell here.

    If this forum doesn't work in the open area of the site then I will not lock it down to the Professional areas only. I don't want to do that. There are many guys in this business that are not registered as a Professional Member. Also, to lock it down in the Pro area would diminish traffic.

    This is a test forum. If it turns out to be a mess then I will delete it and all of its contents.

    To be fair Jeff, the Mods do a hell of a job directing this site. This Junk Yard forum will stretch their limits. These guys deserve all the respect we can muster as they do their jobs here. I respect each of them greatly and don't like throwing pie in their face.

    I want this forum to work. It is just a small step to where it may head in the future depending on the site owners discretion and foresight.

    Good luck with your sale... got to paint baseboards now or I will not have pie to throw.
