My guess is either its a broken dimmer on/off stat or its a pulse stat. None of my habistat dimmer stats flicker just lights comes on when its on and off when its off.

It is an on/off stat, suitable for heatmats and possibly ceramic heaters. It is more expensive than the bog standard mat stat so possibly it is more sensitive with less of a temperature fluctuation - working almost like a pulse stat. If the temperature you are requiring is close to the optimum for that particular heat source then this would explain the fairly rapid on and off cycle. Hope this makes sense lol.
