Hi everyone.
I've been using a Microclimate Ministat 100 since I got my corn snake in July but I've always been having issues with it. Most of the time there's a 5oC drop before it turns back on, or it goes 3-4 degrees over the set temperature and is too hot.

Today I cleaned out my snake's tank and the stat is completely messed up now. The temps are going way up to 34oC (it even went to 40 but I didnt have my snake in at the time) and isn't turning off, even when I turn the dial down. It did this once before but I fixed it however this time nothing is working.

What should I do? I'm afraid of my snake getting burnt or having breathing issues if it keeps this up. She's also in the middle of shedding.
