Thank you again for visiting JustAnswer, based on the information you have provided I would like to give you a general answer to your question.
If this does not solve your problem or you need additional follow-ups please respond here with the information I requested and we can troubleshoot your problem further.


While I need the heat type that you have, and a little more information. I can offer you a general answer. Some problems can be solved by cycling the power on/off to the unit. (Via the Mains)
If this doesn't work, there could be an issue with the thermostat, or the heater itself (boiler/furnace/heat pump) depending on what you have.
