Default Aquarium temperature controller NEEDING HELP!!!

So I about a STP-1000 aquarium temperature controller form ebay. I have been trying to wire it up and have not had to much luck. I could not get it to power up. I finally wired it and it turned on. But I think it still is not working because it say -39 and switches to -38. Does any one have a diagram that might help me please!!!!!!! Also on my the contacts that say power is 3 and 4 and the switch switch symbol is on 1 and 2 not sure if that makes a difference?

A few photos might be useful in understanding your issue. Is it a STP-1000 or a STC-1000? The numbering scheme is similar to a DWH7016.

I think it might be the DWH7016H-110V. Also if I have tried to wire it up a different way is it ruined?
The picture of the diagram was one of the ones I tried and did not work.

I can't quite make out the wiring in the center photo but it appears to be wired incorrectly. It is not wired per the diagram. Let's see if we can clean up what you have.

From the power cord, the Hot/Black is connected to the yellow wire nut?
From the power cord, the Neutral/White is connected to the left side (silver) screw of the receptacle?

Are there more than two black wires in the green wire nut?

OR

I can just tell you how to wire it. I'll assume that you want to control both outlets of the receptacle together.

Hot/Black from power cord to a wire nut. A black wire from this wire nut to #2. A black wire from the same wire nut to #3. Resulting in three black wires in the this wire nut.

Neutral/White from power cord to silver screw on receptacle. White wire from other silver screw on receptacle to #4.

Black wire from #1 to brass screw on receptacle.

Ground to ground screw on receptacle.

Terminal 1 and 3 (black) is to power. Terminal 2 goes to reciprocal. Terminal 4 is neutral. I only have one socket wired in up. I am so lost I hope you can help!

I'm not seeing this in the photo. I see terminal 1 & 3 terminated in the green wire nut, but no additional wire. I can't tell what is terminated in the yellow wire nut along with a white wire that is connected to the neutral side of the receptacle. I have no idea where the white wire near your middle finger is going.

It is wired incorrectly. I can help. Try wiring it based on my previous post.

If it doesn't work after wiring it based on my post, check it again and post a photo. The probe wires are not polarized so either terminal for either wire.

So I drew up a diagram from your post, is this correct? Also on the left of my outlit I broke the tab so they are not connected fyi.

That looks correct.

Please note: The broken tab between the HOT/brass screws will result in ONLY one of the outlets being controlled by the controller.

The other outlet will be always off. If you want it to be an always-on outlet, then add a wire between the Hot/black wire nut and the un-used brass screw on the receptacle.
