Default Kitchen Thermostat

I need a new thermostat that controls both the exhaust fan and toe kick heater in the kitchen area. The old one is a Robert Shaw. Called Ribert Shaw and they are no longer available nor is there any replacement. Has anyone found this solution?

The exast fan can be wired with a simple on/off switch.
And i guess any T-stat should work for the toe heater.
But,i'm not an HVAC guy,maybe Mallie or Mike can speak up here?

Alan,
Try this link http://www.wanderlodgeownersgroup.co...ad.php?t=16745
Don just replaced his with some digital units he got from Wal-Mart. But keep in mind that the kitchen thermostat does control the cool-o-matic fan too, so you will have to do like Randy suggests and put in a separate switch to control that.

It is also a 12V DC environment, where the Walmat T stat will be 24 VAC.

There are some RV digital T stats, I just saw while surfing.

You know me, I am dreaming of a PLC based system, PID's, load sharing, RTD's. Just dreaming. I do hate how I have to run around controlling all the heaters. Skiing and all, it is much more trouble when it is colder, and the outside temp changes from day to night, sun to none.

The thermostat is not 12 volt nor is it 24 volt, and it doesn't care about ac or dc. It is no-volt, other than the 1.5-volt battery that powers it. It is just a switch, and will switch 12 volts quite nicely as long as the current is low.

Both the cool-o-matic and toe-heaters are relay driven, and the power through the thermostat is very low-current, so simple digitals work fine. No need for separate switches for the fan, since the thermostat has both hot and cold settings.

In Blue Thunder there had to be an external switch on the heat, since the thermostat controlled both toe heaters and suburban propane heat. That switch already existed and did not have to be changed. I would not expect that situation to occur in a later model that has hydronic heating, where I assume a different thermostat is involved for the hydronic.

Problem resolved: Replaced old Robert Shaw thermostat with a Coleman #025-35367-00 Heat/Cool Low Voltage Thermostat. The unit operates both the toe kick heater as well as the kitchen roof vent fan. There is also a leg for A/C which i did not use. Thanks for your help - all is well.

Alan,
Can you give more information on this thermostat? When I Google it the only result that comes up is this thread. Nothing else shows. I'm sure a lot of other people would be interested in this product if it works as a replacement. Thanks.

Barry,
If you have a Cool-O-Matic fan in the kitchen ceiling area this thermostat controls that fan. The thermostat will have a setting for "fan" and an on and off setting for that. My thermostat is located on the wall at the end of the cabinets before it turns into the salon or living area.
