Was it submersed when you turned it up? Most will show red when heating but I have one that shows green and red at times.

Can you post the model number here?

The heating element will not get red. Only a little orange spot will glow. Don't worry, it is working.

Just he careful how you adjust it. The first time I did, I adjusted it the wrong way and when I came home from work, the temp in the tank was 91 degrees and 1 of the 3 guppies I had in there died.

If you the heater is working you will be able to see the convection waves. Just look at the heater from the side.
