Jäger Aquarium Heater broken?

Hey,

I have a Jäger 125W heater designed for up to 300L running in my 180L tank (47 gal).

When I plug it in, the light goes on, the light will stay on for up to 20 mins, then it stays off. If I try to move it to check, it goes on, the temperature, however, has not changed from room temp.

why?

GF

What temp did you set the heater at? What's your room temp?

Do you have the heater that you can calibrate?

If that's what you have, set the red dial to aquarium temp and readjust the blue dial to desired temp.

It turns off when it reaches the set temperature and turns back on when the temp falls. You need to calibrate your heater first.
