What type of T Stat is this? Someone emailed me asking this question? Is this a line voltage/low voltage stat? Just a regular stat for a gas furnace? Blah Blah Blah
That's one of those "DUDE YOU NEED A NEW FURNACE ALREADY" thermostats.
The kind with a REALLY WIDE temperature swing!
And on the "NEED A NEW FURNACE."

Put the cover back on and back away slowly.
Hopefully no one saw you touching that time bomb.
Looks like a thermostatic style stat of some type. Check here http://www.si.edu/Museums/american-history-museum

Lmao! Ur guys are killing me. Slowlyyyy back away
Joking aside. That unit is so old finding a replacement is going to be a huge challenge, if possible. Most likely you will end up with anything but a direct replacement and now you own any issue that comes from this guy.
Its had a good life, let it die.
Agreed! I don't plan on touching it all nor would I. If he's to cheap to replace that pile of s**t, he can't afford the service call.
I'm thinking its just a line voltage bellows tap stat. I ain't touching it
Loved the museum link
I told him it looked like the spring was bad and it would cost 4 grand to replace lol
