I think you will find most heaters can adjust the temperature setting UnderOATH.

What this thread is about, is a faulty heater.

Inside all heaters is a thermostat (Cuts the electricity supply off when the correct temp is reached). These are normally made from a simple metal strip, that bends when heated, they often get stuck, broken etc.

When this happens we normally go and buy a new heater, when you are talking about cheap heaters, this is a very common fault, but once this has happened to you, you tend to spend the extra few pennies on a decent heater.

This is UK prices (At the supplier I use), a cheap well known brand of heaters that may have the word "Pet" in part of it's name is
