Furnace control

I tried my furnace, the other day. The inside temp was 60 degrees. The furnace started as soon as I moved the thermostat up to 10 degrees. The furnace ran good, but when the temp hit 70, where the stat was set, it didn't shut off. The temp was nearing 80 degrees, and I shut it down. Would the thermostat be bad, or sticking? I took the cover off, in case there was some dust on a bug in there, but didn't find anything. The trailer is an 09 Cherokee, 39L. Thanks

Sounds like a bad thermostat. It controls the furnace.

Don't confuse the fan with the fire though. The fan will run for a few minutes after the thermostat tells the fire to shut off to cool the heat box. It also starts the fan first; prior to starting the fire; A "sail switch" in the furnace outflow has to close before the fire is allowed to start.
