Why is my thermostat screen blank? The thermal protection of the electric baseboard or thermostat has been triggered to prevent a fire hazard. Thermal protection tripping may occur when the baseboard is overheated or obstructed by a piece of furniture or curtain. The power supply to the baseboard and the thermostat is then cut off. The baseboard and thermostat will start again as soon as the baseboard has cooled down enough.
If, even after cooling the baseboard or thermostat, the display is still blank, contact an electrician to verify the installation.
