Heater Acting Up

I have two bettas right now and each one has the same heater...ever since I've gotten the heater it's kept the water at a constant 78 degrees. Well today I cleaned both the tanks and the one heater in functioning normally and the other not is only going to 70 degrees. Help?

Is the heater on? It may just be because you added water from the cleaning and cooled it down.

Yeah the heater is on...and I see when it goes on and off but right now I have one gallon tanks so I do 100% water changes (I'm upgrading to a ten gallon this weekend) and the water I put in there was somewhere around 75-78 degrees and the one heater is fine but the other one is shutting off when it gets to 70...and I let it stand in the water for like 15 minutes when I put it back in before I plugged it in like it says in the directions and when I plugged it in it was still around 75 but now it won't get above 70.

Is there any water circulation?
If not, try swishing around the water in the container.

There was water circulation...there was an airstone in it but not anymore. It doesn't seem to be effecting the other tank.

Maybe you can contact the company that it's by and see if they can send you a new one for free.
