Yep. But also you will see that the t-sat is very lazy. Though it does work. Would love to see it more sensitive to temp changes. But I don't know if it could be. I check with the ir right above the shaft over the cover that still covers up the actual t-stat when the big cover is off. I see it being room temp when cold to as high as 250 degrees f. I think 250 was the highest I have seen it..I should check again.
