    RobertShaw Thermostat in Condo keeps running after reaching temp

    Hi All,
    I live in a garden style condo and the heating and cooling is dictated by the management during winter and summer. I have an old robertshaw thermostat. The temperature dial seems to be stuck at 60 degree. It works like an on and off switch at 60. Heating will keep going forever after reaching above 60. It will shut off when the dial is turned below 60. I've read that these old style thermostat in condo and rental are 120-240v. Is that something a regular homeowner can replace or repair? Also, should I contact HVAC or Electrician for this job? Please see pic of the thermostat. The thermometer shows 72 in the pic.

    Thanks in advance,
    Rockville Home Owner

    See if the condo maintenance man will install it for you if you get your own. Slip him a bill or 2

    Yup. I lived in an apartment with a fan coil for a couple years. My stat was more modern than yours but also line voltage. The T6069 models are line voltage.

    Thanks for the recommendation. So the management gave me T6169B4017 for free. It has three wires (yellow, blue and black). There are four wires out of the wall (red,black,white, blue). The new one doesn't have a fan speed setting. It only has Heat,off and cool. Any advise on how to hook it up? Also attached a couple of pics. Thanks again.

    Site rules prohibit give advice for DIY.

    Why did management not have the maintenance department replace it?

    There = not here. Their = possessive pronoun. They're = they are
    It's = contraction of it is. Its = the possessive form of it
    Too = also. To = expressing motion. Two = 2
    Then = after that, next. Than = indicates a comparison.
    Questions should end with a question mark "?" Statements end with a period "."

    Tell the management company to pay someone to hook it up!

    You shouldn’t accept the responsibility in any shape or form!
