I don't now Celsius very well but in general if something isn't working as intended get a new one. Maybe contact the company and see if there is a warrantee

The thermometer and heater are in opposite corners, so for the first instance when you set it to 26C and it was 24C, maybe the heat hadn't been properly distributed yet

The second instance where it's still set to 26C and the thermometer says 27C, isn't that much of a big deal. (maybe the room got warmer)

Before you buy a new one, just keep it running in the tank for a couple days. If you notice that the temperatures are waaaay off, then definitely get a new one. I just wouldn't want you to waste a perfectly good heater D:

The problem with that is the heater came with the tank, for all I know it could be 10 years old!

I guess 1 degree isn't that much, I just want everything to work out... I'll do that.
Thanks for your responses!!

Will do!
Now it's off at 24...(still set at 26) could be it's not evenly distributed yet... We shall see...
On a happier note, the water is still clear! Yay!! This is when it started getting cloudy last time.

Yay for clear water! Do you have one of those Top Fin heaters?

Just got one yesterday. It's acting so weird. I had to set it up to 86F to get it to stay at 80F.

Might return it :/

with new heaters you generally need to leave it in the water for about an hour or two before you set it to let s thermostat set up

unplug it and wait about an hour. plug it back in then slowly turn the knob in till the light comes on leave it alone until the light turns off then check the temperature of the tank if you need to raise it turn the knob until the light comes on and leave it alone until the light goes off and then check the temperature of the tank. if you need to decrease the temperature you turn the knob until the light goes off and Wait etc
