I didn't follow the startup instructions properly
I lost the instruction manual for this heater which came as part of an aquarium start up kit for a 20 gallon tank. I intuitively placed the thermostat, plugged it in, and set the dial to (+) to warm the tank above room temperature. I checked this forum to find out why the indicator light turns on for 30 sec - 1 min at a time - seemingly randomly. While I found my answer to that question, I learned that I was supposed to let the thermostat run at factory setting for 24 hours, which I did not do. It seems to be working alright, so my questions are - what is the purpose of this procedure? and have I done harm to my heater?
