Your thermostat is probably sticking. There's a little arm on the t-stat which catches on the housing and causes the immediate temperature increase then decrease to normal. Solution is to replace the t-stat and either file the housing a little or cut the arm off the new thermostat. That oughtta take care of your problem!
