Thermostat Control

I'm trying to do an analysis using the thermostat feature in a thermal analysis. I'm having two problems:

1. To define an initial temperature, I've selected all the faces of my part, but it still seems to start at 0K. I've had to pull the part into an assembly so I can pick the actual component in the initial temp. selection. Is there a way to select the entire part to apply the initial temp?

2. My analysis seems to ignore the thermostat. I can probe the thermostat location and see that it blows right through the cut-off temperatures. Why would that happen? I have only one heat power source in this analysis.
