Exclamation Tank Heater suggestions?

I just recently upgraded my betta to a 5 gal tank. I bought a heater that is 25 watts and said up to 6.6 gal. The heater was on for the first hour.. and then it shut off. And my thermometer says the water is around 75 and the dang thing hasn't been back on since... I am UBER PISSED because these things are not cheap! What should i do? I think a return is necessary but would a 50 w be too much heat?

I would give it 24 hours and see if it heats the water up at all..If not I would return it..I have a 50watt aqueon on my 5 gallon and it is working lovely.. The only reason I went with the 50 watt was because it was on sale for 20 dollars and I wasn't able to find a 25 watt I liked locally....Just keep an eye on the temperature.
