Glad it helps. It can seem complicated when you start but after you have been using them for a while it all starts to make sense. The thing is not to take too much notice of what temperature the thermostat dial is set to - it is the actual temperature on the thermometer that matters. If, even when the stat is set to highest, you have problems getting high enough temperatures then move the stat probe further from the heat source.
