Use a candy thermometer and slowly bring the temp up so you can see at what temp it opens at and what temp it is fully open.

Did I miss a step in the instalation process? I replaced my stock t-stat (without testing the unit) and my guage shows a consistent temp of 180 when warmed up.

You're going to need something like a predator to adjust your fan settings to go with your new t-stat.
