    You can tell if thermostats are working as it displays the temperature you're setting it to as you rotate it. Then it will revert back to displaying the current flow temp. If it remains on the flow temp then they have snapped. They break really easily. You could always get your plumber to increase the temperature by manually increasing it on the board.
