New thermostat turns heater below actual temp.

I have a new electric wall heater that has a an in it, it's 220v. It can be 65 degrees in the room and when you turn the thermostat up it turns the heater on at 50 degrees. Is there a way to adjust this to the actual room temp or is the thermostat shot?

Thanks,
Bob

Thermostats can be re-calibrated but 15 degrees is a lot of offset. Even if you reset it.... it may not hold calibration.

It may need to be replaced.

Got it figured out. Returned it and got a different one. Works now.
