Did you adjust the idle speed to compensate for the plunger not working, and haven't readjusted it after fixing?

A wax filled element (which expands as it heats up) pushes the pin. Problem can be that the stainless steel pin and alloy housing can corrode together. Mine did that - pulled it apart, cleaned it up, lubed with coppaslip and the jobs a goodun!
